INDEPTH KNOWLEDGE OFTemperature control SYSTEMS
Our temperature control services allow for effective temperature regulation where it matters the most. At Suffolk Automation, we can utilise temperature control systems for a variety of applications.
An example of this is with grain silos used in maltings. We’ve created a system that constantly monitors the temperature of grain silos to ensure the correct temperature is consistently maintained.
The main factor in producing excellent malt is ensuring the raw material utilised has been dried and stored in the correct conditions; therefore, it’s key to ensure that temperatures and moistures are controlled with the right timings and environment. We have identified and developed a software that can automatically monitor the safe storage of grain, so that it maintains its ideal quality for the maximum time period possible and readily meets the needs of the processing site.
This software makes use of temperature probes in the silos to keep track of the temperature. Remote-controlled fans are placed in situ; if the temperature and humidity exceed the optimal levels, the fans will automatically use cold air to cool the silos down to the appropriate temperature.
The main advantages of this system include:
- Product managed 24 hours/day, 7 days/week.
- Safe storage of product to industry best practice.
- Material can be stored for long periods of time.
- Remote controls, no need for manual intervention.
- Reduction of potential pest infestation.
- Ideal storage conditions to mitigate moulds and formation of Ochratoxin A.
This example is just one of many applications for our temperature control solutions. Whether you work in the malting, milling, brewing, or animal feed sector, we have the best automation solution for you. If you’d like a consultation with us to figure out how best to automate your processes, or you’d like more information about any of our services, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us today.
