Libra Drum captures real-time visibility and control for blending and total plant automation. With Libra Drum, a fully graphic operator interface eases monitoring complex drum control operations to increase production and accuracy and seamlessly integrate with overhead loadout.
Libra Drum is reputable for reliability, configurability and accuracy. The system’s highly-customizable design allows the user to design custom software switches, create reports, and adapt to the current and future plant control requirements. Each bin can hold multiple materials at multiple calibration points, increasing productivity and efficiency. The system is simple to read and provides complete plant status at-a-glance.
Libra Drum monitors motor currents and plant parameters to aid optimization of efficiencies and allow predictive maintenance before failures take down the plant. Dynamic, color-coded graphics provide at-a-glance status pertaining to valve changes, material flow, tank levels, temperatures, interlocks, and any alarm conditions that require the operator’s attention.
Sustainability with Asphalt
Truck fleets average about a 25% increase in fuel economy. Command Alkon’s trucking management solutions help to shorten drive times with optimized routes so that less fuel is used. Solutions like these can map truck locations in real time so that managers will know when a load will arrive at the jobsite or at the plant. The yard can be cleared prior to delivery so that trucks do not sit and idle, releasing CO2 into the environment, while they wait to unload.
Another great way to cut carbon emissions is to optimize truck usage by reducing empty-bed time. By creating geofences for loading and unloading locations, systems like this can provide visibility into how long trucks are spending on those sites. Clear visibility into traceability of material properties and orders ensures that products arrive in the best possible quality, reducing delays and productivity lags.
