EmulTronic
Emulsion & Modified Bitumen Plant Control


Producers of emulsion around the word are glad they chose EmulTronic for automation and control of their plants. Based on the same platform as our successful asphalt plant automation systems the Emultronic handles all phases of emulsion production and storage with many levels of safety checks and advanced features. Sharing the graphic signature of all Minds systems, a full graphical representation of the plant allows easy understanding of complex pipe layouts. Our proven XIO dedicated hardware powers the system behind the scenes.

" I could write you a book on every way it has helped us out, so I will just hit the high points. Within the first week of running we found mechanical deficiencies at every plant.Loadcells that were still working but did not calibrate out well.Asphalt content issue fixed. Vibrations being picked up by the tachs due to how the wiring was run.Safeties and limits that weren’t working. Overall, we have cut our downtime due to controls issues to zero hours across three plants. This is a big change from the last few years where we were fighting issues almost daily. Whether it was lost PLC programming,… "

EmulTronic Highlights



Highly Efficient, Computerized Plant Controls

EmulTronic™ is an advanced emulsion plant control system, modified bitumen control system and liquid terminal control system. All functions of running a terminal or plant are handled, from unloading trucks or rail cars of raw materials to mixing and blending, storing, heating, loading out and printing tickets of the finished product. Multi-screen operator oriented 3D High definition graphics reduces the learning curve and assists with troubleshooting. On-screen configurable system allows multi-parameter editing without reprogramming. Easy and reliable calibration procedures ensure conformance to the most strict standards. The system can be set up with or without manual controls in parallel to the automation inputs and outputs.
