A Scale Model of a Grain Storage Torage Tower Equipped with Micro Web Servers

Juarez Bento Silva

Abstract


This paper presents a scale model of grain storage tower, i.e. a silo for drying and airing cereal grains. The scale model consists of a 2.50 m wide x 2.10 m long plant with all control and monitor capacities provided by Micro Web Servers. An application running on the Micro Web Servers enables storing all parameters in a data basis for later analysis, preferably done remotely. The implemented model aims to support a remote experimentation facility for technological education, research-oriented tutorials, and industrial applications. Given its low-cost, this remote facility can be easily replicated in other institutions to support a network of remote labs, which encompasses the concurrent access of several users (e.g. students).
