FMS offer mixer control systems both for our own range of continuous sand mixers as well as retrofit units for our competitors sand mixers
The unit consists of a steel enclosure mounted on our pump enclosure, the lower enclosure normally contains 3 positive displacement pumps, this can be increased if other pumps are required, such as water addition or extra catalyst/hardener pumps are required.
The pumps used are a very reliable and accurate and are coupled with drive motors controlled by the AC inverters
- Tuthill geared Resin/Binder pumps with Viton seals
- Tuthill magnetically driven Catalyst / Hardener pumps with Hastalloy/PTFE seals (subject to chemical process)
The standard FMS mixer pumps are controlled by the Mitsubishi D700 range of inverters coupled to the PLC system for advanced control.
The upper enclosure contains all electrical components, which are controlled from the Mitsubishi FX3 PLC, this is linked to a 6-inch full colour GOT1000 type HMI Screen, this touch-operated interface displays all the required adjustable components within the PLC program such as sand Gates, mixer operation and chemical controls.
The HMI is supplied with multiple languages as standard and an operator panel connected at the front of the mixer contains the controls for the mixer.
