When these facilities needed process control, they called Kahler Automation. Look through the features below to learn about some of the thousands of projects Kahler has had a role in automating over the past 25+ years. More project showcases coming soon...


PROJECT: United Farmers Cooperative, Brownton, MN

In collaboration with Sackett Waconia, a 200-ton blend tower with four-ton high-intensity mixer (HIM) was developed; a liquid impregnation system was designed by Kahler. An accompanying straight product tower allows wholesale trucks to be loaded quickly. 

A custom chemical and liquid fertilizer facility was designed for prescription blends to be made. Both straight product and hot loading is available.

To meet United Farmers Cooperative’s lofty efficiency goals Kahler Automation’s designs included a 24/7 unstaffed load-out bay, with technology allowing UFC customers to pick up scheduled fertilizer orders at any time, day or night.

Heritage Cooperative — Marysville, OH

PROJECT: Heritage Cooperative, Marysville, OH

To meet the challenging goals of Heritage Cooperative, Kahler Automation designed a facility that included a 24/7 unstaffed loadout bay with technology that enables customers to pick up fertilizer 24 hours a day.

A 200-ton blend tower with 3-ton High Intensity Mixer was developed with Kahler designing a liquid impregnation system. Liquids can be sprayed simultaneously so speed is not compromised when impregnating. 

Kahler Automation's grain system allows the entire grain operation to be monitored and controlled from anywhere on the control network. Grain can be moved anywhere in the facility by multiple source/destination selections, controlled by a touchscreen, requiring only one person.
