Agritech, Grain storage
Early infestation detection. Save Grain. Safely.
Miraex delivers systems with unprecedented precision and robustness for grain storage predictive analytics, asset monitoring and anomaly detection using its revolutionary ultra-sensitive ATEX environment photonic sensors, together with its machine learning software.
Grain Storage
Grain storage is a traditional business across the globe, each Bin (or silo) represent a huge amount of grain and therefore we can compare each silo as a bank .

Stored-grain pests often cause as much loss post harvest as crop pests cause during the growing season: 
- $200 Billion world wide
- 5% in US/EU (50m tons wasted)
- 50% in developing countries (850m tons wasted)


Massive economic impact for farmers, from several sides:
- Loss of grain volume (eaten by pests) 
- Grain price discount
- Fumigation, eradication cost
Challenges
Detecting small pests (Tribolium, Cryptolestes, Rhyzopertha…) in massive bin storage is a challenge: 

- ATEX/explosive environment (current electronic sensing system are dangerous and expensive)
- Large pests sound damping due to grain
- Possible presence of pests at any location inside the bin
Miraex Solution: the best of each world
Miraex designs, manufactures, and delivers best-in-class predictive maintenance, issue detection, and asset monitoring systems for your grain storage Silos in ATEX environment.

Miraex solutions combine revolutionary photonic sensors and machine learning to enable real-time accurate predictive/preventive maintenance, alert/condition monitoring, and anomaly/event detection.

Miraex vibration, acoustic, temperature sensors are typically 
- ATEX compliant 
- Ultra-sensitive than any other ATEX compliant sensor on the market
- Can be tuned to the acoustic frequency of the pests therefore improving signal/noise ratio
- Can be multiplexed meaning that several sensors of various frequency response can be used with a single communication channel

Customer Outcomes
More early  safe detection, greater cost optimization
Secure grain storage. 
Reduced grain losses from pests' grain consumption
Photonic sensors positioned at the point of interest in the harshest ATEX environment provide the most accurate data.
Reduce grain Discounts 
Grain discount are due to pests Infestation and Grain damage by eliminating infestation via proactive fumigation or eradication process.
Avoid full fumigation cost 
Early detection thanks to ultra sensitive sensors and Machine Learning (ML) are triggering avoidance of full fumigation cost, just need to turn grain or aerate it.
