  • Controlling food process plants

    Publication Year: 1992
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (64 KB)

    Over the last decade, the food industry has undergone many changes-manufacturing plants have become larger and these large volume plants are now facing the problem of producing a wider mix of products in many different styles of packaging. This pattern of change has resulted in fewer major developments but many extensions or modifications to existing facilities, most of these requiring new plant a... View full abstract»

    A number of commonly encountered simple neural network types are discussed, with particular attention being paid to their applicability in automation and control when applied to food processing. In the first instance n-tuple networks are considered, these being particularly useful for high speed production checking operations. Subsequently backpropagation networks are discussed, these being useful... View full abstract»

    The last decade has seen the development of many approaches for estimating those variables which are difficult to measure online in industrial process situations. In this paper one approach that can he used to provide frequent and accurate estimates of process outputs which are subject to large measurement delays is outlined. The method makes use of a neural network model. The development and appl... View full abstract»

    Connoisseur is an advanced process control package. It makes possible tight control of the process using existing interfaces to the plant instrumentation and in addition it provides the functionality of a full feature SCADA system. Two particular applications of Connoisseur in the food industry, the dried milk powder production and the pH control in a sugar industry, are presented View full abstract»

  • Need of process measuring systems in the food industry

    Publication Year: 1992, Page(s):2/1 - 2/4
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (232 KB)

    The food industry has the same measurement requirements as any fast moving consumer goods industry with the added complication of naturally variable ingredients, perishable products and microbiological safety. This paper focusses on the measurement needs of the packaging operation, particularly the dosing of difficult, naturally variable ingredients and controlling the integrity of product and pac...

    The food industry as a whole comprises a broad range of companies of differing levels of technical sophistication and many companies are finding the benefits of automation in terms of more consistent quality and higher efficiencies. However the challenges of the food industry are great in term of development of new and novel approaches to control and monitoring of processes particularly based arou... View full abstract»
