The Internet of Things Inside Grain Operations

Riceland Foods deploys a Profinet system devised by TempuTech that monitors hundreds of sensors to boost operations and safety, reduce downtime, and deliver operating intelligence for continuous improvements.

When you think about how to keep grain operations running smoothly with zero downtime and no undetected safety hazards or unnecessary operating costs, the Internet of Things is probably not the first answer that comes to mind. But that’s the approach TempuTech used in developing a cloud-based system for Riceland Foods’ grain facility in Jonesboro, Ark. The system is designed to provide continuous monitoring and actionable information to help operators proactively prevent problems by managing both grain and equipment conditions.
