Evisceration performance monitoring
Once installed in a processing plant, Innova IMPAQT is the perfect tool to keep performance, availability and quality at peak level. In practice, it enables management to identify and react instantaneously to even the smallest drop in performance at the very earliest stage.
Let's take evisceration performance as an example: suppose IMPAQT monitors a minor loss in evisceration performance; it can then go directly into detail to detect the causes.
Going into detail
"In the graph of our example project, we can see that after having had parts replaced and been optimally set the eviscerator was already performing considerably better, but still not consistently. At that moment we could decide to make IMPAQT show performance per unit.
In our example, we saw from IMPAQT that only three units were underachieving, not the entire machine. After replacing these individual units, performance was back to optimal again and fully under control,” says Dirk Kuijpers, Innova IMPAQT project coordinator. "This is a splendid example of how IMPAQT can monitor and analyze even the smallest details in order to reach full potential."
Loss at hang-on
The hang-on loss is also an important issue that can be tackled by IMPAQT, as every empty shackle at the beginning of the line comes back time and again further downstream in the process. At multiple places in the line, people and equipment will be inefficient, waiting for full shackles again.
Integrating hang-on efficiency in IMPAQT means that this data is easier to gather and is available real-time. It’s IMPAQT’s task to detect whether each empty shackle is due to poor manual performance at hang-on or not.
When there is a malfunction in e.g. the live bird supply, IMPAQT should not include those empty shackles in the hang-on loss. This is possible by making use of sensors at the live bird infeed belt, registering availability.
