Barley Cleaning System - Moorhead, Minn.
Busch Agricultural Resources
Ibberson was the design-build contractor to remove and reinstall two new barley- cleaning systems on this project. Each system consists of a cleaner, two pairs of separators and a grader. This work was completed during a 35-day shutdown of the barley cleaning system at which time all other areas of the elevator and malt house remained in operation.
The plant’s control system was also converted from a manual to an automated PLC-based system. This was accomplished with a sequenced phased implementation that had both manual and automated systems working at the same time.
Ibberson also installed a new elevator dust control system and completed the conversion of the system for the complete elevator. This work was completed utilizing the plant production down time.
A new employee locker room and upgrades to the elevator building were also included in the project.
