While the basic sieve automation provided with most ethanol plants can run a standard 2 or 3 bottle sequence, making changes to the sequence to meet varying operating requirements can be a challenge. This KPI System lets you define your Key Performance Indicators, automatically collect and summarize their values, and present them in timely, professionally written reports, graphs, and dashboards.
