ICHEMAD-Profarb | Automation and control

Automation and control

ICHEMAD-Profarb designs, builds, assembles and installs complete process lines with machinery of our own production and control systems customised to Investor’s technology. We ensure automation of all operations and chemical processes – full or adjusted to Client’s requirements. The plant automation solutions of our design are based on referenced software.

We apply equipment and software that relies on high-class technologies:

  • Automation systems are carried out with use of devices and software of renowned brands such as Siemens, GE, Allen Bradley, PROFACE.
  • We offer facility equipment with measuring, signalizing and actuating devices by experienced manufacturers such as Emerson, Endress&Hauser, Mettler-Toledo, Krohne, Baumer.
  • For safe operation of the installation in facilities characterised by explosion risk, we apply solutions by Stahl, Pepperl&Fuchs, Bartec.
  • For facilities with increased risk, we apply solutions based on reservation systems and redundant networks.

Process automation

The choice of automation mode depends on requirements of the production technology of the Investor, safety precautions (Atex zone) as well as optimisation of the applied solutions with respect to Client’s investment capabilities.

We offer solutions based on varied automation levels:

  • Full process automation mode:

In this mode, technological processes are conducted in an automated way as a realisation of tasks and production programmes introduced in the system controller unit. The staff’s sole role is requisite supervision. A single “production programme” is a sequence of operations relying on a chosen technological recipe. This mode enables complete configuration of the process line by a selection of devices that are requisite in view of the equipment and topology of the installation.

Functionalities and benefits:

  • This mode enables tasks scheduling, balancing raw materials with products, process visualisation, data storage, events and alarms registration, possibility of configuration of elements of the installation and parameters of the process as well as preparation of production reports individually for a User.
  • The processes are conducted with use of the local operation panels (acceptation of programmes to be realised) and visualisation stations (configuration, reporting).
  • We present a possibility of integration with existing ERP systems (transfer of tasks, reporting on task completion).

 

  • Simplified process automation mode:

Individual operations are conducted in an automated way respectively to the extent of equipping the installation with actuators.  

Functionalities and benefits:

  • The technological process is conducted as a realisation of production tasks prepared by the User by a manual choice of unit operations in the local operation panels.
  • In this mode, with appropriate equipment, we can also enable visualisation of the process, data storage, events and alarms registration, possibility of configuration of elements of the installation and parameters of the process as well as preparation of production reports individually for a User.

Remote service of automation systems

We guarantee the possibility of remote service of PLC applications and visualisation station to facilitate dealing with the problems during exploitation of the facility.  The possibilities of fast diagnostic and remote elimination of disruptions ensure safety of conducting the processes.
