Cake Storage

Press cakes are continuously transported through a system of conveyors from the press to storage space. The conveyors, located just below the ceiling, distribute the cakes around the entire area of the storage room. Through remotely controlled discharge outlets, the operators choose where the press cakes fall on the floor to form a mound, with an angle determined by the properties of particular press cakes (the angle of repose). The personnel must observe the mound’s height and change (remotely) the discharge outlet on time. It is convenient to switch discharge outlets and add press cakes in smaller amounts onto multiple mounds. This allows press cakes to cool down more quickly (as a thinner layer) and significantly reduces the risk of spontaneous ignition.

A common issue is that the personnel do not ensure regular rotation of mounds used for dispatch and leave a mound (usually the one in the farthest corner) for too long. This can lead to distributing expired, low-quality press cakes to the customer.

To prevent these problems from happening as well as to make the operators’ work easier when maintaining regular dispatch of the entire storage area, we have developed a control system CLEVER STORE, as a component of the system for measurement, regulation, and visualization of technology – FIC (Farmet Intelligent Control).
