The Pariser Mühle Ebrecht mill takes raw material exclusively from local farmers and producers to create regional flour products. Their ageing mimic plant control system required time consuming planning and was causing numerous downtimes. It also had outdated hardware. Statistics and reports were manually prepared and the system was unable to support remote monitoring or diagnostics.
Bühler’s upgraded system with new hardware and new WinCos® software was installed in a single day. The new system has optimized uptime for Pariser Mühle Ebrecht, and improved capacity, which has increased from 20t/d to 35t/d. Crucially, the system also allows the mill to benefit from Bühlers remote diagnostics, enabling preventative maintenance and fast support when faults occur.
