Smart condition monitoring helps barley malt producer stay ahead

Smart condition monitoring helps barley malt producer stay ahead
Producer of malted barley, Muntons Malt has chosen the Smart Condition Monitoring (SCM) system from Mitsubishi to protect fans and motors vital to its large-scale and sensitive production process. Used to make beer, spirits and a range of popular foodstuffs, malted barley is produced in large batches where conditions are critical to a consistent product. The operation team had previously experienced issues with difficult-to-reach bearings inside a large fan housing and wanted to stay ahead of the game in future.
