o make all processes at storage complex as much transparent and controllable as possible, and as a consequence – to manage its cost-effectiveness; exactly this task, assigned by the grain silo owner, is performed by the computer control complex solutions implemented by our company.
Hardware components aresupplied from the leadingglobal brands (Siemens, Schneider, Eaton).
A software solutions implemented on PLCnext Technology platform is provided by PhoenixContact, a German electrical engineering giant.
A unified platform with the possibility of the gradual or selective connection of the modules at the customer’s request.
A completed software package is adapted and adjusted to the requirements of a specific elevator. This significantly cuts expenses during commissioning and a software development.
An intuitively comprehensible and user-friendly interface is adapted for non-qualified personnel.
Phoenix Contact PLCnext controller can be extended up to 63 modules on the one hardware bay, that allows you to save for purchasing of the hardware part in case of increasing of the connected modules to the solution.
Automation of grain storage complex starts from the construction of a transparent and efficient processing chain.
Design availability allows the following:
Automation without a design increases the implementation cost in 2 times. Investments in the design development save up to 50% of the budget of such implementation, because of the future modifications and alterations (materials, services) absence.
It is significantly important to design a complex solution for future reference. It can be implemented stage-by-stage, in the following order: safety of the conveyor line, separator, grain dryer, which are responsible for the grain quality; grain receiving to exclude a fraudulent scheme.
It’s possible to implement the automation system both at the new and the existing elevator without a necessity of the closing down operations and without reference to the season.
Above that, НАССР (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) at storage complex also requires a complete automation of the processes, that is mandatory for the industrial facilities engaged in activities with food substances.
Turnkey automation of the elevator complex with a capacity of 40 000 tons of one-time storage takes 3-4 months, from the technological flows programming work to equipment assembly and software installation at the facility.
The term of the return on investment of the fully-automated elevator is 1.5 years shorter in comparison with a similar non-automated elevator. This is achieved by cutting off the expenses on personnel, reducing energy consumption and optimizing of the operation-routing sequence.
15% of the resources from the annual turnover on operating costs are released.
KMZ Industries specializes in automation of grain storage complexes because we understand a grain storage and processing technology.
A properly implemented automation enables you a full access to your grain storage complex, wherever you are. It allows you to completely control a situation: from the smallest detail up to all process flow, e.g. to manage directly with your own profit.
