Revamp control of feed business

Motor hammer mill revamp control

Recently ATS Group, BU Automation, was responsible for the conversion of the hammer mills at a West-Flemish cattle feed company.

The six 'smaller' mills were replaced by two large 400 kW mills. The new motors are frequency controlled and were fitted with RFI filters and brake modules. The control of the mills was adapted to the ABB 800XA DCS system. An additional MCC room was built for this purpose.

In addition, the necessary downtime was taken advantage of to convert the general low-voltage board from 3000 A to a type-tested board.

Through the conversion:

  • the electrical boards comply with the applicable standards.
  • there is increased fire safety.
  • machine safety was brought up to the level of the current legislation.
  • It is now possible to grind at an adjusted speed and to adjust the structure of the end product for each recipe.

The complete conversion, both electrical and mechanical, was realised in only 10 working days.

Congratulations to the entire team!
