Weigh in Place Systems (WIPS)
With the use of todays high dollar seed treatment formulations, tracking of application has become critical. Universal Coating Systems developed WIPS for use with all of our commercial size systems. WIPS gives the customer the ability to very accurately add products to the seed treating and coating application environment by weight. Allowing accuracy and repeatability not possible in past treating and coating equipment. WIPS also gives the coating systems more ability to operate without operator oversight, as the products being applied are under constant policing by the WIPS software. If the application of materials does not make the proper weight of application required, the system goes into standby mode and alerts the operator who can then troubleshoot the problem and make the proper adjustments to the system. WIPS also has data logging interface software to allow the CCS system to transfer data to the customer’s computer platform to track application information in whatever form the customer requires. WIPS systems come in both Poly and stainless steel tank systems for liquid applications, and is available on all four of our powder feeding units. Your Universal Coating Systems representative can help with all your system application needs regarding WIPS.
