Asia Awards 2012
The Victam ‘Award for Milling - GRAPAS Asia 2012’ is awarded to the company displaying the most innovative and economically beneficial equipment, process or service at GRAPAS International and Victam Asia, February 2012, Bangkok, Thailand. Grain and Feed Milling Technology is honoured to sponsor this award for GRAPAS and Victam and thanks all companies making application for the award. “While our task was to identify an outright ‘winner’ we could not help but notice the difficulty the judges had in making their final decision and we therefore asked the judges to acknowledge ‘highly commented’ and ‘commented’ in addition to the winner,” says Roger Gilbert, of Perendale Publishers Limited. The winner of the 2012 GRAPAS Innovation Award was Foss from Denmark with its ProFoss Online Analysis which the judging panel said had, “True in-line capability and a very great potential.” It was the product that swept the pool of innovations coming from the grain milling industry and on display at the exhibition. GRAPAS is the name given to an exhibition within an exhibition on flour, grain, rice and pasta milling at Victam Asia in February 2012. The GRAPAS Asia 2012 Award trophy is held aloft

“It is our recommendation therefore that in judging, weighting is also given to the breadth of fields in which they can be applied. The recommended winner and runner-up are both products that can be applied to a wide range of milling sectors and thus they will thereby contribute more to the industry as a whole,” the panel stated.

Others awarded
Four other companies submitting products for consideration resulted in two ‘highly commended’ and two ‘commended’ awards from the judges. Dutch equipment manufacturer, Van Aarsen received a ‘highly commented’ award for its ‘Automatic Screen Exchange for GD Hammer Mills. “Automatic screen exchange on a hammer mill is a distinct advance on normal operating practice and which will improve overall feed milling plant operating efficiency and safety. Screen changing is typically a laborious procedure which this innovation will address. The animal feed industry can achieve improvements in its utilisation of plant by applying this device,” the judges stated in their summing up. Also coming ‘highly commented’ was the Batch Call Optimiser from Norvidan Overseas A/S of Denmark. “Plant control systems which optimise the utilisation of the plant are of ever increasing significance. Norvidan are offering an impressive facility to ensure the optimum use of parallel lines of a process to ensure maximum output and thus best economic return,” the judges said. The two companies receiving a commendation for their submissions were Morillon of France for its ‘All-in-one Hydrascrew’ and ‘Queue-plus Software for Feed Plants’ by the Thai company Agentis Innovation. The hydraulic drive for the HydraScrew discharge screw is advantageous due to its good torque characteristics – “a commendable innovation with fairly wide opportunities for application as flat-bottomed storage grows in importance,” said the judges. “Queue-plus, from Agentis Innovation, as described is an innovative software development which will provide material benefits for the feed miller and his customers of bagged products. A reduction in traffic congestion and turnaround time resulting from the improvements in scheduling is a major objective for a plant operator,” concluded the judges.
