At the Process Expo, we had a chance to showcase our electrical controls
capabilities on the PosiFlo Automatic Chub Loader. In the video, Jason Hicks demonstrates
the HMI (Human Machine Interface) capabilities programmed into the pumping system.
In the demo, there are monitoring devices that measure and correct product level,
pumping pressure, loading efficiencies and speeds. The monitoring devices talk to the
controls program to adjust pumping speeds to meet the requirements of the equipment being
fed by the PosiFlo. Downstream and upstream production is monitored through the program to
allow for automatic operation and timing. Another feature is the safety switches
which will automatically flag and stop the system if the gates, or pump access are opened.
For maintenance and safety, we also monitor the local motor disconnect positions.
On the PosiFlo, Allen Bradley products are featured. However, the components used
in our Controls packages are flexible to customer requirements.
There is also an option for remote secured connection which allows for
isolated/firewalled connection to Mepaco’s equipment for remote support and
Controls and interfaces are available on all Mepaco equipment and
