Exi Batch controller Batching Master 110i/210i
The intrinsically safe batch controller Batching Master 110i/210i is designed for the automation of truck loading and dosing applications where precise results are required. The communication to the DCS can be done via digital signals or by a Modbus interface.
The Batching Master 110i/210i can be installed in the field, locally at the filling station. It indicates the important information for a safe using by the operator.
In the case of an emergency, the batch can be interrupted immediately. Failure messages are shown in clear text.

Truck filling systems for liquid products:
The Batching Master controller can be installed locally at the filling station. In the case of an emergency the batch can be interrupted safe and quickly.
Due to different failure monitoring function it is possible to realize safe and accurate batching systems. Release signals can be connected via digital inputs.
Two Modbus interfaces allow the connection to a CT approofed communication and data storage system PCC 400 and also a communication to the customer's DCS system.
Custody transfer loading systems for railway wagons
The batch controller type Batching Master 110i/210i is a part of different European approvals for custody transfer conform MI005 / OIML R117. The communication controller PCC 400 creates the loading protocol after the filling process. The operator need to enter the individual UIC number of the railway wagon at the batch controller and the PCC 400 checks in a MySQL data base if this UIC number is available for the loading. The UIC No. will also be shown in the loading protocol.
Filling systems for containers, IBC's and barrels
With a dosing system consisting of a flow meter, a Batching Master 110i/210i and a batching valve it is possible to build a simple filling station for containers, IBC's and barrels. Via special functionalities of the communication controller PCC 400 it's possible to print labels with the product name, the quantity of product and additional information about the product after the filling procedure.
Dosing systems for liquids in the production
In production areas it's required to have exact dosing systems for liquid products into batch reactors or mixing tanks. For the dosing of alcohols or if the plant produces medicine it's necessary to store the batch results or to print dosing protocols. With the communication controller PCC 400, we are able to deliver solutions for the input of additional information like a batch number before the start of the dosing process.
Some important features of the Batching Master 110i/210i:
Precise batch results with the 4-20 mA valve output
The Batching Master is able to control the batching valve with a 4-20 mA output signal. Because of a soft-start ramp and a 5-step shut down ramp, also small quantities can be batched with highest accuracy.
No pressure "hammers" in high flow rate systems
This problem is eliminated because of the soft start ramp and the shut down ramp of the batching valve.
PID flow rate controller
The PID flow controller makes it possible to control the flow rate during the batch process.
Pressure control of liquefied gas
Liquefied gas like LPG, Propane or Butane demonstrates out gassing effects as soon as the pressure falls below the vaporization pressure of the gas. These vapor locks would cause fail-measurements in the flow meter.
The PID override controller function of the Batching Master is able to keep the pressure during the batch by the 4-20 mA valve output signal.
The 25-step linearization function of the Batching Master delivers the right pressure set point depending on the actual temperature of the product.
Flow rate monitoring
If the flow rate during the batch falls below a programmed value, then the Batching Master stops the batch process after a programmed time. This function prevents the uncontrolled filling during a failure in the measuring system.
Product way selection via the function keys F1-F3
With this function 3 products can be batched with one metering system. The product way can be selected with the function keys before the start. The question text and the text for the product way can be entered in a programming menu.
Batch system for ultrapure water
Ultrapure water is used in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic production as basic product.
The continuous water flow in a circulatory system prevents the formation of germs in the water.
The Batching Master closes the circulation valve before the batch start. Different time functions take care, that only the real batched quantity during the batch will be counted.
