COMMISSIONING

Beginning with mechanical startup and continuing to running product through the machines, our personnel are knowledgeable about the equipment and about grain processing. Machine settings are established, and each separation process is fine-tuned to meet the system requirements.

System flow diagrams, machine drawings, operating manuals and specific instructions are reviewed with the operators by our commissioning personnel, and are left for the operators’ use.

Bjerke Brothers, Inc. personnel are available for follow-up after commissioning, to ensure that the system continues to perform to specifications.

OPERATOR TRAINING

Your operating personnel will be closely involved in the commissioning process. Knowledgeable Bjerke Brothers, Inc. personnel will explain the operation and settings of each machine, and will continue operator training until all are confident that the operators are comfortable with the machines.

Complete operating and maintenance manuals are developed for each machine, and these are reviewed in detail with customer operating personnel.

Ongoing support is available from our offices and our field personnel.

To expand on the initial operator training and to provide training to new personnel, we can provide formal training seminars, customized to the requirements of the customer’s facilities and operation.
