Questions:
• General Information:
1.
Is this controller being installed to batch in metric or U.S. as the primary units?______________
2.
What is the maximum plant batch size capacity in cubic yards (or cubic meters)?_____________
3.
What is the minimum plant batch size capacity in cubic yards )(or cubic meters)?_ ___________
4.
What are the capacities and divisions for the aggregate and cement scales?_ ________________
5.
What information is required on the batch ticket?_ _______________________________________
6.
Should the CB-2 keep track of current inventory of material or only material usage?__________
• Weighing and Moving Aggregates and Cements:
1.
Does the plant use the same weigh hopper to weigh aggregates and cements? (If yes, explain order of adds)
_______________________________________________________________________________________________
_______________________________________________________________________________________________
2.
Does the plant weigh aggregates or cements by loss in weight (surge/holding hopper is on load cells)?
_______________________________________________________________________________________________
3.
Does the plant use more than two (2) weigh hoppers (one (1) for aggregates and one (1) for cements)?
_______________________________________________________________________________________________
4.
Does the aggregate require any equipment to move it from a surge bin into the weigh hopper other
than a feed gate and gravity?_ ________________________________________________________________________
5. Does the aggregate require more equipment than a single conveyor and a discharge gate to move it
into the truck or mixer?______________________________________________________________________________
6.
Does the cement require any equipment to move it from a silo into the weigh hopper other than a feed
gate and gravity or auger? __________________________________________________________________________
7.
Does the cement require any equipment to move it from the weigh hopper into the truck or mixer
(other than a discharge gate and gravity)?______________________________________________________________
8. Is the aggregate discharge gate on the weigh hopper NOT an “inching gate” type? In other words, does
the discharge gate for the aggregate only require power to open it and closes automatically when the power
to open it is removed?
9.
____________________________________________________________________________
Does this plant have a limit switch on the aggregate discharge gate?_ _______________________________
10. Does this plant have a limit switch on the cement discharge gate?___________________________________
11.
Is the cement discharge gate on the hopper NOT an “inching gate” type? In other words, does the dis-
charge gate for the cement only require power to open it and closes automatically when the power to open it
is removed?________________________________________________________________________________________

Questions
• Water and Admixtures:
1.
Is the water weighed instead of using a pulse meter?____________________________________________
2.
Do you use more than one (1) water supply? If so, is the water metered through different water meters?
_____________________________________________________________________________________________
3. Does your process use more than two (2) water additions? Standard is one (1) large water addition before and/or during the aggregate discharge and a holdback/tail water addition after aggregates and cements
have been discharged completely (both scales to zero).______________________________________________
4.
If a water reservoir is used, does it have only one (1) discharge valve?_____________________________
If so, how is the wash down water added?_____________________________________________________
5. Is a single separate piece of equipment used to meter and add water to the mix? If so, how and when
is this device activated?___________________________________________________________________________
6.
How many admixtures does this system use (Six (6) is the default maximum)?______________________
7. Is a single separate piece of equipment to meter an discharge your admixture? If so, how and when is
this device activated?_____________________________________________________________________________
• Central Mix, Pre-cast and Block Plants:
Does this installation use a concrete mixer of some sort other than a truck for in-transit mix? If you have a mixer:
1.
What type is it?______________________________________________________________________________
2.
Is there more than one (1) mixer? If yes, how are the different mixers charged by the same plant?
____________________________________________________________________________________________
3.
What input/output lines are required to charge it? Start it mixing? Tilt it? Discharge mix from it? Please explain the details of the mixer and the mix cycle._ _____________________________________________
____________________________________________________________________________________________
4.
Is there only one (1) mix cycle of x time required from the time it was charged to the time it is discharged?
_ ______________________________________________________________________________________________
5.
How should “pause” and or “error” conditions affect the duration of the mix time? Should the mixer
ever be turned OFF with cement in it?_________________________________________________________
6.
When the concrete is discharged from the mixer, does the CB-2 need to move it to a block press or
skip hopper? Explain how this is accomplished._________________________________________________
____________________________________________________________________________________________
7.
Do you need the CB-2 to start pre-weighing another batch while the current batch is being mixed?
If yes, then this is a continuous operation. Explain in detail how the CB-2 will be notified when it is OK to
charge the mixer? When is the mixer done discharging? When is the block press ready for more material?
____________________________________________________________________________________________

• If you answered yes to any of the previous questions, there is a good chance that the CB-2 standard product
will need a custom software modification. Some standard options are available.
• Please volunteer any additional information about this application or ask any questions you have about the
CB-2’s capabilities here. Thank you for taking the time to answer these questions.
