Bulk Ingredient Control

V5 Bulk Ingredient Control System is the perfect way to ensure high volume, bulk fed dry or liquid ingredients are accounted for and tracked accurately (Mixed or Separated Lots).

The system ensures traceability of automatic bulk ingredient movements from silos to the mixer, preventing costly ‘pull everything’ recall situations.

SG Systems integrate has a flexible approach to communicating with PLC Systems ( For example, a PLC may draw an ingredient from a Silo and transfer it to a hopper prior to its use in a mix.  The lot transfer is recorded, eliminating paper records.

Hundreds of configuration options exist in the standard product, enabling each system to be setup to handle many applications including food and beverage, bakery, chemical & plastics, pharmaceutical & life sciences.

The V5 Bulk Ingredient Control System system provides effortless compliance with BRC, FDA, FSMA, and many other quality standards.

User Friendly Touch Screens

The V5 Bulk Ingredient Control System can be used to automatically control a mix (ingredient discharge, mixer times & speeds, start & stop) or work in semi automatic / manual modes.

SG Systems can receive data from existing PLC systems to record inventory transactions against locations which provides traceability.  The system eliminates the human error associated with mix management while handling traceability transactions automatically, so you have confidence in the quality of the batch.

SG Systems Bulk Ingredient Control Terminal allows other items (whole bags, sub mixes, tablets, non-weighed ingredients) to be scanned into the mixer providing multi stage traceability.

Hardware Specifications

The SG15 Touch Screen is a NEMA4X (IP66) heavy industrial computer designed for harsh manufacturing  applications. It is usually supplied with a stainless steel fabricated stand with a built in scale, however the terminal can be supplied and connected to most existing scales and balances using internal connections.

The terminal is constructed using compression seals to maximize ingress protection.  Cables entries are sealed and protected.

The Terminals are supplied with software applications which run on Windows or Linux as a background operating system.

Stainless steel stands, scales and printer enclosures are fully welded and polished to high manufacturing standards.

Supported Peripherals

  • Weighing Equipment (4 x analogue inputs, 4 x serial RS232 inputs).
  • Bar-code Readers (hardwired USB or Bluetooth)
  • Label & RFID Printers (network)
  • Report Printers (network)
  • Temperature Probes (serial RS232)
  • PLC & switchgear (serial or network)

Networking

The terminals utilize TCP/IP communications to a database using a wired or wireless LAN.  This allows multiple Terminal to communicate with a central database.  Terminal support is conducted using VNC or RDC.

Now we have SG Systems installed, batches are achieved with great accuracy!
