Efficient silo management for smooth process flow with UWT NivoBob®
Even bakeries with multiple storage silos often do not have an automated level monitoring system to control their inventory levels. Therefore these stocks have to be checked manually on a regular basis and an order has to be triggered to the flour supplier on time. Due to unforeseen fluctuations in demand or simply by not having verified the stock levels sudden emergencies arise that lead to unplanned extra tours for the mill.
Solution: The UWT NivoBob® 4000 is fitted for level monitoring
The current silo levels can be displayed at the mill control center using the UWT NivoTec® visualization software which can be accessed via the Internet browser on any Ethernet PC. The controller can see the real-time status of the silos because the visualization controller is directly integrated into the Ethernet system.
Advantages and benefits of the level-remote system:
The benefit of the whole system is the simplification of the material disposition processes leading to a reduction of costs for all parties involved.
– The installation of the system in the bakery as well as in the mill is straightforward and can usually be carried out by the mill’s own service engineers.
– Control cabinets only have to be set up once; afterward no additional IT support is necessary.
– All silo levels can be visualized at the same time -> material planning security.
– The system can be dismantled at one customer and installed again at another -> no new costs when customers change.
