Grain Shuttle Site Automates and Tracks Data Increasing Throughput »

Frenchman Valley Coop expands its operations by adding Culbertson shuttle site.  All operations throughout the facility are computerized and designed to be fail-safe, wired by control engineers Kelton Neighbors and Nimit Shah of kasa Controls and Automation, Salina, Kansas. Control panels track grain movement ("The grain can't go into the wrong bin," Neighbors said); monitor hazards and log graphs (for down-to-the-minute tracking for up to two years).

"We try to bring all (operations) of the facility into the grading shack -- making the facility's operations as simple and as safe as possible," he said. A sophisticated camera system aids the staff in probing and sampling inbound and outbound grains and serves as surveillance for the purpose of security throughout the entire facility.
