–Before Q-Robot, we noticed that manual sampling has caused too many errors in our balance. Taking samples manually is simply too difficult. For example, small humane mistakes can cause major differences in large material flows. This was the case with the biomass we handle, tells Peter Seppälä, the Production Manager of Kuopion Energia.
Problems of manual sampling had made Kuopion Energia to consider alternative sampling methods.
–The samples should be taken automatically before unloading the load. In addition, all loads should go through same sampling point, and the labour of people should be minimized, says Seppälä.
