November 8, 2018 – Sterling Systems & Controls announced the availability of its automation application module for Receiving and Material Transfer for dry solids. All automation systems are custom engineered and manufactured to meet exact customer requirements. Sterling Systems routinely incorporates its Receiving/Transfer application module in automation systems within a variety of industries.
The Receiving/Transfer application is custom designed to suit the exact needs of the application. This includes allowing for manual control or to include the ability for automatic receiving and transfer stepswithin a facility. A fully automatic Receiving/Transfer application tracks andtransfers incoming material to the correct location, such as grain and other commodity materials in a Feed manufacturing facility.
Truck or Railcar transport can be accommodated. Feed rates are controlled to maximize efficiency and safety. After the material has been moved into the containment location (bin etc.) the system logs and weighs empty trucks before they leave the facility. Weight measurements, before and after material transfer, are logged into the tracking function.
