Monitoring and condition-based maintenance of screw conveyors

Continuous diagnostics:
Quality assurance in the food industry, avoidance of contamination in filling processes.

Early detection:
Detection of foreign bodies in the filling process, alarm in case of malfunction.

Maximum efficiency:
Higher uptime by permanent diagnostics and monitoring of the process values.

Easy integration:
ifm offers individual solutions.

ifm application solution - screw conveyor applications
Filling systems in the food industry - filling different powder products (milk powder, freeze-dried coffee and much more):

  • Monitoring of the uniform drive movement
  • Immediate machine stop in case of detection of impact movements between screw and format tube or funnel
  • Avoidance of metal abrasion particles (foreign bodies) contaminating food during filling

Cost reduction
Condition-based maintenance as required instead of fixed service intervals. Replacement of parts can be planned.

Prevention of unplanned downtime
Basic monitoring, vibration diagnostics on rolling element bearings. Early detection of motor damage, dry running or cavitation.

Process optimisation
Data acquisition and analysis. Maintenance when needed.

Implementation independent of your IT department
Application package from the sensor to evaluation and network-based analysis.

From sensor to ERP
Can be extended to other applications and/or ERP systems.
