Acrison also offers users the Acri-Data Supervisory Software package, a Microsoft® Windows TM based program that allows a PC or laptop to communicate with up to 20 SBC-2000 Family Controllers.
Acrison’s primary markets include the food, chemical and plastics processing industries. However, Acrison equipment is applied in virtually all settings where the accurate metering of dry solids ingredients is required, including the mining, pulp, paper and paperboard, solid propellants, ceramics, building products and pharmaceutical markets, to name just a few. In addition, Acrison expands and applies its industrial product line to meet the needs of the various water and waste water treatment industries, employing field-proven industrially designed equipment for water treatment processes from basic chemical feeding and dissolving systems to dry and liquid polyelectrolyte metering and wetting systems.
Acrison strongly encourages a prospective user of dry solids metering equipment to visually and physically compare the available devices in order to select the optimal equipment to satisfy the metering requirements of the most demanding processes. We welcome witnessed testing at our facilities as we are confident that personal observation of an equipment operational demonstration will prove to be invaluable in the customer’s decision-making process.
Acrison’s state-of-the-art customer demonstration facilities are the largest, most advanced and best equipped in the industry. They are always available to demonstrate the operation of the appropriate equipment handling the user’s actual material. In most instances feeder evaluations are conducted at the specified production feed rates for the application, and normally testing is conducted without any charge to the customer. Test procedures are generally completely automated with the capability to sample at intervals as brief as 0.1 seconds in duration.
In addition to equipment demonstration and materials testing, Acrison also offers comprehensive end-user field and factory-based training programs, focusing on equipment operation/maintenance, as well as customized seminars dealing with the specific application of Acrison products.
Offering the most complete range of customer service and support functions available in the industry, Acrison’s first priority is to meet the diverse needs of an ever expanding global user base. With increased manufacturing capabilities, world class equipment demonstration, training and seminar facilities, and an excellent global sales and service network, Acrison is well positioned to meet the ever increasing requirements of its customers.
