Potato Cooker - Industrial


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

RESULTS: The cooker was instrumented to determine hot spots 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.
