Freestyle Farms - Hops - This progressive and fresh enterprise has been upgrading systems in a local farm after purchasing it in 2016. Upgrades include; Automated Hop press to ensure total bale consistency by monitoring press pressure, weight, height and adaptions per variety/seasonal factors. Database connection is the start of systems to provide serialization for product. Existing plant was retrofitted with new gear upgrading with speed control, variety specific settings and better fault management. An automated infeed system has greatly improved throughput and Integrated safety ensures that the relevant standards are met during changes in the industry. Kiln control is next on the list with some great improvements set to be made after gathering data this last season. Upson Engineering designed, built and installed the original upgrades to reduce waste product, an innovative 3rd cleaning line, and the automated infeed system (among many other upgrades). It has been great working with a view forward to better product handling and more efficient systems with the end goal of providing the end users with total confidence in a repeatable and very high quality product. Note: "End Users" refers to the critically acclaimed international assortment of talented craft beer brewers - Thanks!
