Whitepaper: How IIoT can improve performance in mash filtration
Optimizing consumption of raw materials & plant performance through opportunities in combination with Industrial Internet of Things IIoT technologies.
The general economic and social conditions are forcing brewers to further optimize their consumption of raw materials and resources as well as their plant performance. However, today’s process engineering does not offer them much potential to achieve this and is already far stretched in this respect. But completely new opportunities and options are opening up in combination with Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies.
The brewing industry is more diverse than it has been for a long time. On the one hand, global corporations are establishing beer as the world’s drink. On the other hand, there are creative craft brewers and mid-sized brewers who serve profitable niche markets with their specialties. What unites craft brewers with global brewing corporations as entrepreneurs is the one main guiding principle: The quality that the consumer demands must be produced with the lowest possible investment (CAPEX) and operating costs (OPEX). Of course, the high price of craft beer does not allow cost-cutting in the same magnitude. But the laws of business economics also apply here. In addition, both the consumer and the legislature are showing less and less forgiveness when raw materials and resources are not used sustainably. Climate protection is key.
