Development of Maltingplant prototype (English)
This thesis describes the development of a maltingplant prototype with the capacity of 1ton per cycle. The Prototype is specifically developed for the use of Korngårdens Humle AB that are investigating the possibility to start malting barley for use in beer.
The project began with an extensive pre-study, where information on the process was collected. Some of the questions answered were: how it is done? What happens to the grain during the process? What are the products on the market today? What work has been done previously? And finally, what are the requirements of the process?
Based on the information and requirements found and the wishes from Korngårdens Humle AB a customer demand specification was established. This was used as a foundation for concept development and finally for the selection of the suitable concept. The plant would be qualified for the three sub-processes in malting, steeping, germination and kilning.
The concept chosen is based on two containers, one for steeping and one for the germination and kilning process. Project boundaries were set for only mechanical solutions to be solved. Sizing and selection of motors, pumps, valves and software was not included.
Development of the digital prototype was documented along with FEM-analysis for critical parts. Alongside with the development a costing estimate was done to ensure that the demands was held and that the prototype was able to compete with existing plants on the market.
