Advances in Feed Mill Technology
As the agricultural industry continues to grapple with increasing global food demand, feed mill operators are constantly seeking innovative solutions to enhance efficiency, productivity, and the overall sustainability of their operations. This ongoing drive for improvement has spurred significant advancements in feed mill technology, allowing for more precise ingredient mixing, improved feed quality, and reduced environmental impact. The ever-present need for advancing Feed Mill technology is driven by factors such as:
- Ensuring product safety and the safety of plant operators/personnel.
- Improvement and/or sustainability of process efficiency.
- Realization of energy savings or reduction in energy consumption.
- Elimination or reduction of process waste.
- Reduction in equipment downtime.
- Improvement and/or maintenance of product quality.
While not an exhaustive list, the above noted factors are some of the major drivers behind the latest innovations in Feed Mill technology. Three of the more recent strategies for addressing these factors, and thus drive advancements in feed mill technology are:
- Remote Access Monitoring
- Process and equipment redesign
The redesign of feed mill equipment and processing steps significantly contribute to improving energy consumption efficiency, product and operator safety, product quality, and waste reduction efforts. Automation enhances, aids, and sustains the gains made in redesigning processes and equipment. However, remote access monitoring can play a key role in the implementation of innovative strategies centered around automation and process/equipment redesign.
Insta-Pro’s Remote Access Monitoring system provides a powerful tool for:
- Monitoring the status (running, stopped, or faulted out) of process equipment.
- Keeping track of processing parameters such as temperature, operating capacity, run time, power consumption etc.
- Pro-active preventive maintenance for equipment.
- Providing data that aids in efficient troubleshooting and root cause analysis.
- Maintaining process stability.
