The following is data sent to Branscan from a customer who has just started to use an INLINE F4000 instrument for quality and process control of their flour mill The data that is shown in this presentation was taken from the archive, however the problem was seen at the time in the trend display of the software and because of this the customer was able to react quickly to rectify the problem.
During production, the miller noticed that the bran specks and
Bran percentage increased very quickly.
They stopped the mill and went to check the sifter. What they found was a small hole in one of the covers, so this was replaced and the mill was restarted.
From the Archive graph it is clear to see the spike in Specks and percentage, and how quickly the mill returned to normal production once the sifter cover was replaced
