USEMCO

USEMCO - Remote access, monitor and troubleshoot digesters from a distance reducing onsite time and cost by 60%

USEMCO - Universal Sanitary Equipment Manufacturing Company based in Tomah, Wisconsin, is the industry leader for the custom engineering and manufacture of turnkey pump stations, control systems and access doors for Municipalities and Industry.
This is a valuable tool that saves money by not having to send a technician on site to make the changes locally.

Summary 

Mike Harris, an engineer at USEMCO comments:” We are working on technologies to make anaerobic digesters feasible on small to mid-range farms, with as few as 100 cows to turn waste into energy. We also use the generator to heat water that is used to heat the manure in the digester processes. Some of the heated water is also sent to the barn to use in their in-floor heating systems. Increased fertilizer quality and reusable bedding are a couple more benefits to our anaerobic digesters. The eWON 2005CD allows us to incorporate an easy to set up industrial solution to meet our customers’ needs for now and in the future.”

 

How it works

The combination of the eWON 2005CD industrial router and the VNC capability of the operator interface enables USEMCO engineers to remotely log into the display and navigate the screens to see how the digester is performing. Collecting data to build a usable database helps evaluate critical operations of the digester and determine necessary changes to the process.

The eWON 2005CD industrial router is programmed to email the status updates eight times a day, as well as to send an email and a text message if an alarm condition exists. The messages are sent to multiple people depending on the nature of the alarm and the available person. Along with the data collection and alarm functions, a software package poles the electric meters and posts the data to the web. This allows the farm owner and generator service technician to view the kilowatt output of the generator.
