SWITZERLAND – Swiss food processing technology group, Bühler has launched a new innovative Temperature and Vibration Management System (TVM) for milling to help millers deliver the best quality product efficiently, consistently, and with a minimum of energy consumption.
According to Bühler, millers are under pressure to produce the best quality product consistently.
Delivering the best quality product is however not a small feat. It requires millers to apply the same pressure along the rolls as any deviation would result in reduced quality and consistency of the flour.
Up to now millers relied on trained personnel to manually check the rollers on a frequent basis and time-consuming laboratory analysis to prevent any deviation from acceptable operative parameters.
Bühler’s TVM system seeks to simplify this process by detecting critical operational conditions early so millers can take timely action.
Through accurate management of the grinding process, the system helps maintain the best product quality and consistency, says Bühler.
Additionally, TVM helps millers apply precise settings, consequently reducing energy consumption and product wastage.
The system is also connected to the Bühler Insights platform and provides essential information on the grinding process based on Bühler’s proprietary algorithms.
The launch of TVM represents another significant step towards the fully digitalized and automated SmartMill.
Early March 2021, Bühler in partnership with Premier Tech partnership unveiled a new series of fully automated packaging equipment for millers.
Called CHRONOS OML-1060, the new packaging equipment can easily run any type of bag, including non-laminated poly woven that can be problematic to fill due to their irregular properties.
Also in March 2021, the Swiss Technology Company in partnership with leading manufacturer of centrifugally chilled cast iron rolls for the food processing industry Balaguer Rolls unveiled the next-generation smart rolls for grain processing.
“Our digital services in combination with our industry expertise lift efficiency to entirely new levels and help millers and plant managers to further improve their mill’s performance,” says Johannes Wick, CEO Grains & Food at Bühler.
According to the company, The TVM service is continuously developed further to maximize impact. Future features, for example, will include more advanced recommendations up to automatic adjustments based on recipes.
Alexis Noel says: “The TVM service and its features are set to become a standard in the milling industry as the millers will be able to focus on their core activities and hand over the process stability to the algorithms.”
