This company’s Micro and Tote Batching Systems (photo) are customized, automatic ingredient-batching systems for both liquid and dry materials. These systems typically include supply bins, feeders, work platforms, automatic or manual bin refilling, liquid tank/pump skid equipment and the dry- and liquid-dosing automatic control system. Optional equipment may include raw-material bag lift equipment, dust collection and control for high-dust dry materials, batch-material conveying equipment (such as mechanical drag conveyor), lot tracking and traceability, barcode scanning and more. High accuracy can be attained — to within 0.001 lb or 0.5 g is possible, depending on applications. Liquid dosing includes high-accuracy Coriolis flow-metering devices and pumping systems. — Sterling Systems & Controls, Inc., Sterling, Ill.
