ZIPPE process automation – efficiency through precise control

Ultra-modern automated equipment, weighing and dosing computers as well as networked control systems control and monitor the fully automated batch production. In this process the automated systems take over the control of the cyclical processes and the ultra-precise dosing and weighing of the raw materials. The process technology, which is normally designed with redundant features, takes over the man-machine dialogue.

Its basic functions include the visualisation of the plant with manual controls, the monitoring and detection system, data input, formulation handling, reporting and production data archiving. The process control system can be integrated both into the batch plant control room and centrally into the furnace control room.

The systems are rounded off by statistical functions as the basis for the optimisation of product quality as well as software modules for the planning and organisation of maintenance work to ensure maximum plant availability. All functions are, of course, integrated for the purpose of remote maintenance via an Internet VPN.

It goes without saying that the drive technology is the very latest in order to guarantee energy efficiency.
