Curd watch presentation

  1. 1. Curd Watch for cheese moulding process Numcore Ltd
  2. 2. Curd Watch Simple solution for accurate cheese block formation Without Curd Watch Different size curd grains unevenly distributed into cheese moulds Unequal size cheese blocks With Curd Watch Different size curd grains evenly distributed into cheese moulds Equal size cheese blocks
  3. 3. Accurate cheese blocks are formed By homogenizing curd mass-flow Curd mass-flow [kg/s] = The amount of curd in the pipe [kg/m] * Speed [m/s]
  4. 4. Screen data Curd Watch uses a pipe sensor that is easily installed into a process pipe. Curd Watch shows, how the whey (yellow) and the curd mass (red) flow through the pipe and forms an index [kg/m] of the curd mass-flow.
  5. 5. Why Curd Watch benefits your business • With Curd Watch: • Decrease product loss up to 30 percent • Due to: • Production of equal weighted cheese blocks • Homogenization of the cheese mass through the whole process • This is done by: • Accurately controlling the curd mass-flow by adjusting the mixer and the pump
  6. 6. Test Curd Watch • By using our trial service you can discover the benefits of Curd Watch in your process - please contact us for an offer! • We will provide: • Rental of the pipe sensor • 3 week trial period with measurement services and suggestions for improvement • The customer will provide: • Location of the trial • Cheese type and fat content of the cheese • Size of the pipe (Pipe sensor is maximum 600 mm long) • Installation of the pipe sensor with flanges • Goals for the trial
  7. 7. Numcore Ltd Insight Into Solutions• Develops and markets innovative high-tech process control solutions based on tomography• Founded in 2007• Spin-off from Inverse Problems Group, University of Eastern Finland• Personnel consists of leading experts in various fields of process industry, research and development• Rapidly growing and expanding abroad• Numcore is: • The first prize winner of Venture Cup 2008 • ATIP 2010 innovation prize winner • The first prize winner of Productive Idea 2011 competition organized by JCI Finland • A participant in the NIY -program by TEKES

  9. 9. Supporting slides Curd Watch Numcore Ltd
  10. 10. EIT – electrical impedance tomography Technology used in Curd Watch 1. Current feed and voltage measurement 2. Solving of inversion problem 3. Image reconstruction – 3D and trends
  11. 11. Elements of Curd Watch solution Pipe sensor, control unit, software • The pipe sensor is installed into the process pipe and it collects the measuring data by using its electrodes • Control unit activates the sensor by pulsing, processes the measuring data received from the pipe sensor and transfers the processed data to the software • Computer software performs the calculations and converts the information into a visible form
  12. 12. Pipe sensor Mechanics• Collects the measuring data by • Technical data: using its electrodes • Pipe diameter: 5-500 mm • Sensor length: 100-700 mm • Temperature: Max 100 ºC / 212 ºF • Tube material: Stainless steel (AISI 316) + coating material depending on process • Electrode material: Stainless steel (254SMO) • Number of electrodes: 16-64 • IP Protection: IP65
  13. 13. Control unit Electronics• Activates the pipe sensor • Technical data: by pulsing and enables • AC power input: 100-240V ~ 50/60 Hz processing of the • Power consumption: <200W measuring data collected by • Band: 10Hz-100Mhz the pipe sensor • Standard power supply: 1-10 mA (may• Input and control board vary depending on the resistance) combined• Voltage measurement: amplitude and phase – with these it is possible to calculate conductivity and permittivity
  14. 14. Software Communication interface• Performs the calculations and • Technical data: tranforms the measuring data • Ethernet connection: IEEE 802.3u into a visible form • Current output: 4..20 mA (passive) • Other communication interfaces• Consists of two elements: available on request 1. Software for equipment control 2. Software for analyzing the measuring data
  15. 15. Installation Made simple• Pipe sensor is installed to the pipe with standard size flanges• Curd Watch demands electrical feed supply 230V (10A), European socket or directly wired to terminal
