Scorpion Ready Mix Controls

ACE-CO's Scorpion Batch Control System merges full-featured plant control with proven reliability, unsurpassed batching accuracy, and ease-of-use. The Scorpion is fully scalable for complete control of simple dry batch operations to large, high-speed multi-mixer production facilities. Ready-Mix Dispatch and Truck Tracking can be added economically for a single or multi-plant operation. New plant and retro-fit applications include Ready-Mix, Precast Products and Pre-Stressed Plants.


Greater Accuracy. Faster Batching. Better Mix Quality.
The Scorpion system features an extremely fast real-time processor that scans data inputs from the plant's scales and meters. This high-speed sampling rate, in conjunction with ACE-CO's precision algorithms, result in greater accuracy and better mix quality while delivering the speed necessary to provide maximum yards per hour from the plant. All batching control functionality is found on one screen. Asynchronous batching capability increases your plant's production providing more profitability each day. Remote batching is also available for those less often used satellite plants.

Longevity. Reliability.
ACE-CO controls production of all critical components, virtually eliminating system obsolescence. There is no need to rely upon third-party components or software modules with built-in end-of-life requiring expensive, mandatory system upgrades. Many of our clients tout that the Scorpion control is the most reliable system on the market. ACE-CO has a very loyal client base that continues to grow.

Advanced Moisture Probes.
The DeltaWave Moisture Control System provides greater accuracy through superior design. The system reads larger material samples and provides greater accuracy, because of their placement under the gate, allowing measurement of material that is actually going into the batch. The DeltaWave measures density, conductivity and temperature. In fact, the DeltaWave is the only system on the market that measures temperature as a key factor in determining the actual moisture in the material.

Immediate Assistance.
ACE-CO's team of highly trained support technicians provides immediate and knowledgeable service 24/7 for the life of the control system. Always available, always friendly, always helpful; they are without question the best customer support team in the industry!

The Job List provides the dispatcher the progress and status of each job, including when to start the next load, quantity of product ordered, quantity of product on the road to the job, and quantity delivered.

The Truck Tracking option displays the truck's hauling to each job, the current truck status, how long the truck has been in that status, as well as the number of minutes expected for the truck to reach the next status.

The Job Order form is a single screen that allows the order taker to enter or review all of the job data. The time en-route to the job is monitored by the system and can be set to automatically update this data in the job record. The default load size can be set to meet job requirements. A maximum batch size can be set to split batch mixes that have large quantities of one material.
