Dairy Plant Automation
Our customer, a milk powder plant, needed to automate milk reception & storage, evaporation, drying, and cleaning-in-place processes. They also needed help reducing utility costs, a major component of their costs.
We used a PCS7 system with PROFIBUS DP and PA standards for high speed connections of all Actuator Sensor Interface devices. We employed Simocode DP With PDM and Honeywell’s Advanced Process Control. We connected over 1200 input/outputs.
The result of our efforts allowed them to standardize their milk production with greatly improved consistency and quality. We saved them significant money through energy savings and reduced losses associated with the perishable nature of milk.
