Blending Skid is Fully Automated
A basic Blending System design would include a primary PD pump to handle water at 50-95% of formulation. Additional PD pumps are selected and used based on ingredient viscosity and other fluid properties. These pumps would meter preservatives, disinfectants, oils and other ingredients, or in some cases a premix of these minor materials made up in a tote. Each pump is piped with standard instrumentation and, most importantly, mass flow meters which guarantee accurate ratio control within +/-0.35% – 0.50%.
Sonic Corp’s skidded systems are custom designed and include PLC automation to provide a stand-alone solution that starts making valid product once piping connections are made to source materials. The PLC program provides:
- Full automated flow and ratio control
- Full manual control
- Cleaning and flush mode
- Alarm and shutdown for ratio, flow, pressure and temperature
- Data logging
Sonic has its own panel building shop where we design and fabricate UL approved VFD cabinets. These VFD cabinets operate the pump motors to provide efficient modulation of the pump flow rates and ratios. Our systems can also include the finished product delivery tank that feeds the spraying units on the wet wipe packing line. We tie instrumentation from this tank into the overall control scheme so it always maintains proper level and never runs dry! We also mount this tank right on the skid in many cases so you receive a full skidded package!
