Discover how real-time centralized silo management could increase transparency in your supply chain.
Imagine how much easier things would be if you always know where your mobile silos were located… if you had a perfect overview of the levels of each silo’s contents… if you could use this data to get your business where you want to go …
Thanks to Cegeka this kind of insight is a possibility. By connecting an IIoT platform and integrated sensors to your business systems, all silos can now be monitored 24/7. From measuring the filling level or quality of the contents, to planning maintenance, it really is that easy.
Knowing exactly where your mobile silos are located and being able to find them efficiently can be a challenge. Without a clear overview there is a risk of silos getting misplaced.
Tracking & tracing silos in real-time significantly increases the visibility of your silo park, allowing you to monitor the exact location of silos and identify any incorrect deliveries.
To maximize customer experience, you can even send notifications upon arrival or during transport.
Manually monitoring silo filling levels is expensive. Permanent filling level monitoring offer an effective solution, as they provide an accurate overview of the supply in each silo at all times.
This type of asset management allows us to accurately predict when silos need to be replenished or replaced, thus avoiding out-of-stocks.
Using a smart silo reduces the risk of errors, increasing traceability of the supply and removal of raw materials in the silos. The cleaning, maintenance planning, sampling and delivery of raw materials can therefore be planned more efficiently.
Smart silos permit emergencies to be prevented or diagnosed and addressed swiftly, increasing safety and ensuring that operations can continue without interruption.
If you are measuring silo contents in real time, it's only logical that the next step is providing extra services.
For example, a service where you continually supply your customers with phosphate pellets, on time and when they need it – in other words, phosphate-as-a-service. The same can apply, for example, to flour, sand, PA pellets for extrusion machines, feed for cattle or poultry, and so on.
We select the most suitable sensor for your application from within our partner network. After the process validation and acceptance, real-time measurements such as the filling level are added, as well as other possible variables such as the location of the silo, the orientation and 3-axis acceleration of your silo, moisture level and temperature.
Our solutions are capable of working in both ATEX-certified and non-ATEX certified environments.
Enjoy the benefits of intuitive and user-friendly access to data from different devices.
Interactive dashboards provide a clear overview of all your data. Notifications and alerts can be set as required and sent automatically when the silo reaches a certain filling level.
Predictive models can also make precise demand forecasts and accurately predict when a silo will be depleted.
If the application is linked to your ERP, orders to suppliers can be placed automatically.
Fast and reliable data processing reduces both your workload and human errors – eliminating production downtime as a result.
Connected silos also facilitate the introduction of new business models or sources of income, for example, by offering flour-as-a-service to industrial bakers, fully unburdening them of the delivery of flour to their silos. Real-time silo fill level measurements also allow suppliers to ensure timely delivery of raw materials.
Products are delivered automatically and on time. This enables proactive planning of deliveries within existing scheduled journeys, which increases efficiency and reduces costs.
