Abstract

This paper presents an instrumentation to monitor different process parameters of green tea production. In case of green tea production, monitoring the pan firing stages (roaster and trough temperature) and dryer temperature is a vital issue. This work is an attempt to design, fabricate and test a monitoring and data logging system suitable for green tea production which can monitor the temperature of the pan firing stage, inlet and outlet temperature of dryer. Seven sensor nodes are required to monitor temperature of different phases of the tea factory with two dryer, one roaster and two troughs. An extra sensor pair is placed to monitor the temperature as well as Relative Humidity(R/H) of the factory environment. For dryer temperature monitoring a K type thermocouple based measuring system is developed. An R/H to voltage converter and Temperature to voltage converter type sensor is used to develop the R/H and Temperature monitoring sensor node. The sensor nodes for different stages are connected in RS 485 network. Data are logged into hard drive of a personal computer and the data acquisition software is developed in NI Lab VIEW.
