Summary
 
The Kasar 4 Silomaster is a recipe based batch controller handling weighed, pulsed or timed feeds. Capable of servicing up to nine ingredients, this unit can be used as a master controller in a multi-channel system. With 20 large dedicated keys it provides User-Friendly control of upto 80 batch recipes. The System has over 10 years of ‘Duty’ and with a Stainless Steel front the unit is suitable for Food Processing, Construction and Chemical Industry applications amongst others…
Description
 
The Kasar 4 Silomaster is a fully programmable batch controller, designed primarily as a standalone controller for inclusion into process control systems. Available in two versions, one capable of controlling up to five ingredients, the other up to nine. The controller features proportional weighing, which automatically adjusts the target settings of all weighed ingredients in a batch, after the final weight of the each component has been assessed. This maintains a constant mix ratio. A totalising and printing facility for Stock Monitoring purposes is included as standard. This unit will accept both weight and/or flow meter inputs. Each feed combination may be tailored to suit the application, also Auxiliary Inputs can be used to interlock the Cycle to other plant processes.
