About the customer : Hemraj Industries is the largest manufacturer, supplier and exporter of Rice and related products in eastern India. It has an authorized share capital of Rs. 100,000,000 and a paid up capital of Rs. 78,204,896.
Plant Name : Rice Mill
2nd Process brought to focus : Machine Shop
Operating Principle :
After the paddy is boiled, it is brought to the machine shop and dried through several dryers.
The dryers receive power from the motors.
Problem faced :
When the motor takes excessive load and the shaft gets misaligned, bearings lose their lubrication, resulting in motor-burning.
In case the motor gets burnt, the production process stops for 2-4 hours, leading to a huge production loss.
Solutions we have provided :
We have installed temperature sensors on every motor-coil.
We have installed vibration sensors on motor mountings.
We have installed current sensors in the three-phase current lines.
All these sensors are connected to our edge devices.
The Outcomes :
Now, motor health can be monitored directly.
Wastage is reduced by continuously keeping track of equipment health and predicting failure.
Risk of production loss is completely eliminated now.
