Mettler Toledo's Q.i. Lite material transfer control solution was developed for group feeds and two-speed feed management batching, blending and filling systems. It monitors material transfer operations by measuring the flow rate of a material at periodic points, then building a mathematical model of the process. Based on historical information, it predicts how the delivery system will react when instructed by the control system to complete the feed. The system incorporates measurement, filtering, asset management, control, data logging, statistical process control and communications technologies in a single package, says the company.
