JWS Grain Weighing solutions
From animal feeds right through to the drinks industry there is an essential requirement to measure quantities of grain; the raw material integral to delivering a final product to the market.
At JWS, there is an understanding that the success of the operation relies not only on the quality of the finished product but also on the quality of the equipment used in the processing. JWS products will enhance the efficiency and accuracy of the operation and are simple to use.
The JWS Bulk/Grain Weigher is designed to deliver exact quantities of free-flowing material. It can handle up to 15 tonnes per hour with an accuracy of ±0.01% of the batch weight.
The JWS Grain weigher comprises a precision weighing hopper and a JWS controller, which can also be used to replace obsolete instrumentation on existing process weighers.
BULK/GRAIN WEIGHER: TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS
• Fully electronic weigher.
• Range of models capable of handling up to 15 tonnes per hour.
• Weigh Hopper mounted on precision loadcells.
• Pneumatically-activated gates.
• JWS Controller with process control software.
• Production status shown on graphic display screen.
• Throughput recording & totalization stored in permanent internal memory.
• ATEX rated option.
The JWS Controller can be programmed to suit various process weighing applications and controls the weighing process in the Hopper.
The client determines the individual weighment and batch size. It is designed to interface with the plant control system via an Ethernet link to the and SCADA controller.
Designed for new weighing installations or to replace obsolete instrumentation on existing weighers, these units are now installed in whisky distilleries throughout Scotland.
The JWS Controller is programmed to suit distillery operations and controls the weighing process in the Hopper. The client determines the coup weight and mash size. It is designed to interface with the distillery control system via an Ethernet link to the SCADA controller.
The weighing process is initiated from the control panel and the weight data is constantly updated throughout the batch. If there is any interruption to the weighing process mid-batch, the Weigher can be re-started without losing totals.
Details of every batch are recorded in the permanent internal database, which the operator or factory manager can access for reporting purposes.
In addition to the normal weighing functions of target weight, feed control, weight optimization, and throughput totalisation, the new controller is linked by Ethernet connection to the plant PLC control system allowing operators to manage the complete process from the Control Room.
The controller comes fully integrated with JWS software, and bespoke applications can be developed to suit the production needs.
Some of the benefits of the JWS Grain Weigher and Controller system are:
• Consistent, accurate weighing results
• Operator control & monitoring of the complete weighing process.
• Automatic recording of throughput weights.
