Potato Cooker - Industrial

 A large US based potato manufacturer came to PCDworks to help them solve a process problem within their current manufacturing line.

PROBLEM: Occational improper cooking caused the entire granule line at a promenent potato manufacturing plant to do down. This resulted in a 3 day prodcution loss. PCDworks was asked to analyze the problem and propose best solutions.


RESULTS: The cooker was instrumented to determine hotspots and thermal efficiency, wireless sensor probes were designed, closed loop steam controls were chosen for installation and overall system architecture were designed by the PCDworks team.
