Lindsay Precast's Rock Hill SC plant has been using the
tablet computer for
their operator interface for several months now and their general
manager Pete Schmitt says "After the BatchTron control system, it's the
best investment we have made. No need for anyone to be in the
control room; we do everything from the tablet, making the whole
operation more efficient". Mobile

controller by WiFi. It mirrors the batching screen and allows a
roving operator to control all batching operations.

April 2015 - High pressure Mixer Washout redesigned with lower cost
The High pressure Washout system now uses a smaller pump with washing
heads sequenced instead of the previous method of running them all
simultaneously. This allows use of the full 1000 psi and 20 gpm
pump output to give enormous washing power at a lower cost than before,
making it affordable to even small precast operations.

October 2012 - All-New Fiber Bag Dispenser
first generation model used the spiral principle, seen in many
vending machines, to dispense bags of the same size. Its
limitation, however, was that different bag sizes needed special
setup or different spirals.
The new model eliminates this and gives
a much more positive action; it is virtually impossible to
over or under-dispense. Watch the action by clicking on

2010 - Moisture measurement for rotating pan mixers
MixTron Glider is an elegant solution to a difficult problem.
It acts like a ski or toboggan, allowing the MixTron moisture sensor to
glide on the surface of the mix while measurements are being taken.
When measurement is finished, the Glider lifts out of the mix, reducing
wear and buildup until it is time to measure the next batch. The
"ski" holds the sensor faceplate at a constant downward pressure in the
mix, controlling density and eliminating air pockets that destroy
accuracy. The result is a highly stable, accurate reading that
allows fast assessment of the moisture either before or during the
addition of water.
