The ANSI/ISA-88 addresses manual and automatic batch process control by providing standards, terminology and procedures. It ensures consistent recipe sharing and data handling across multiple locations. A new white paper outlines how the application of S88 for stand-alone batch control minimizes engineering, training and compliance efforts.
An accurate, reliable weighing system that measures ingredients and transfers them into the batch is a critical part of the batching process. This process can be automated, manual or a blend of both. Ideally, automated transfer and batch control can be managed at the weigh terminal eliminating the need for a full-scale PLC control system. The right weigh terminal may also guide manual batching. A stand-alone batch control system may benefit smaller-scale operations because it eliminates the processing time and costs associated with PLC programming. It also minimizes efforts for engineering, training data tracking and tracing if it has incorporated S88 guidelines. Download here: http://ow.ly/ltzxF
