We transitioned the Phosphites Department from a Foxboro DCS system to a new virtualized system based on Rockwell software/hardware (PlantPAx). Our Team worked collaboratively with our client to develop visualization for batch recipe manager & messaging in an easy to use intuitive manner. This project upgraded the existing controls in the department while adding automatic batch control to six (6) Batch reactor units, with seven (7) master recipes per unit.
PLATFORM: Rockwell, Microsoft & VMWare
TOTAL PROJECT CAMPITAL: 350K
- Phased approach coupled with understanding of clients process allowed for Phase I completion on constricted time line, providing proof of concept for phase II funding & execution
+Operator interface design mimicked existing, reducing operator training while incorporating High Performance HMI schema.
+Quality defects reduced by 30% and batch cycle time increased by 44%.
