Process automation

Challenging – The process industry

Few industries have as many facets or are as interesting as the process industry, which produces a wide range of products for the most diverse areas of daily life. On the one hand, the chemical industry produces preliminary products for other industries. This group includes base chemicals, petrochemicals, polymers as well as refined and special chemicals. Key consumers include the automotive, packaging and building industries. On the other hand, chemical products are used in the areas of health, the environment and nutrition. As well as the chemical and pharmaceutical industry, the process industry includes other sectors such as the biotechnology, paper and food industries.

Even though the end products may differ, automation is making huge leaps forward in each of these areas. International competition and the resultant pressure to continually increase productivity as well as a continuously expanding range of variants and strict requirements for process and quality assurance demand automation solutions.

Train efficiently

Festo – The partner to the process industry Festo is fast becoming a key partner to the process industry. It is only logical that the process automation learning system benefits from this know-how and is tailored to the requirements of different industries through its consistent modularisation: – Water supply and disposal industry – Food industry – Bulk goods industry – Chemical and petrochemical industries – Biotechnology/pharmaceutical industries – Paper industry

Why stop production to facilitate training? It is prohibitively expensive to shut down an industrial system to facilitate training. Comprehensive training in the individual areas of process automation requires industry-oriented model systems or training installations. „Learning by doing“ and „process orientation“ are two principles that are central to the successful imparting of the many detailed training aims in process technology. Simulation of a process engineering system on a PC provides the opportunity of using a simulation as an actual training system.

MPS® PA 204 Complete system

Control technology is clearly and practically explained using the P, PI or PID control algorithm. The temperature sensor – the reactor station uses a PT100 resistance thermometer – supplies a unit signal of 0 – 10 V via the measuring transducer. The controller approaches the setpoint temperature via the continuously controllable heater and keeps it constant.

Using a constant flow rate, the three raw materials are mixed to a recipe in the mixing station. The flow rate is recorded by means of an electronic flow sensor with impeller and additionally displayed using a variablearea flowmeter. The controller adjusts the necessary flow rate via the pump with analogue control.

Pressure control ensures constantly high filter quality during flushing. The pressure sensor with LCD display, analogue output and switching output always supplies the correct measurement variable. The controller ensures constantly high filter quality during rinsing via the proportional pressure regulator.

The filling level of the dosing tank is detected in the bottling station using an analogue filling level sensor. The controller regulates the filling level to the required setpoint value via the continuously controllable pump. The filling level in the dosing tank is kept constant during filling, which optimises the quality of the filling process.

Mixing station

Function The mixing station mixes different recipes from three reservoir tanks. The liquid from one of the three reservoir tanks is pumped into the main tank in a controlled manner by opening the respective two-way ball valve. The finished mixture can be pumped to the next station via a second pump – or pumped back to the reservoir tank.

Measurement and control

Using a constant flow rate, the three raw materials are mixed to a recipe in the mixing station. The flow rate is recorded by means of an electronic flow sensor with impeller and additionally displayed using a variablearea flowmeter. The output signal from the flow sensor is converted to a standard signal from 0 – 10 V. The mixing station can also be actuated through binary means using the integrated comparator. The controller

adjusts the necessary flow rate via the pump with analogue control – using a simple two-point controller or various dynamic controllers such as P, PI or PID. This permits a clear explanation of control technology on various levels.

Process automation – Networked system

Function A networked system enables level control, flow rate control, pressure control and temperature control systems to be operated simultaneously. Each station is equipped with a Siemens DR19 and can therefore also be operated individually. The stations are connected to the host computer (PC) via Profibus DP. Access to the process variables of all stations is provided by the operation and visualisation software InTouch or WinCC. Step by step to greater complexity Training starts with individual groups of students at the individual stations tackling tasks of similar complexity. The complexity can be gradually increased later by merging the stations into one system.

Training aims This system complements the training aims of the Compact Workstation. – Commissioning and maintenance personnel: Realizing bus networks. From planning, design and configuration through to realisation. – Operators: Process operation, monitoring and performance training as part of system management. The networked system can be supplied as a version with 4 stations (level control, flow rate control, pressure control and temperature control) or as a version with 3 stations (no pressure control). In both cases, a connecting station comprising a pump and 8 x 2/2-way solenoid valves controls the flow of water between the stations. Six or eight capacitive sensors (depending on whether there are 3 stations or 4 stations respectively) monitor the level of the containers. Supplied with a SIPART DR19 controller and S7-313-2DP.

Integrated systems: from the control station to the field Modern communication technology enables you to „see“ the sensor from the control room. The critical question remains as to which signals are relevant for display or which intervention options should be made accessible to individual groups of people. The system provides a quick insight into complex relationships and points to trends in the latest technologies and methods through the use of hardware and software from market leaders.

SIMATIC WinCC is a PC-based control and monitoring system designed for visualising and controlling processes, sequences and machines. InTouch is an interactive system for visualising, monitoring and controlling industrial processes on IBM compatible computers.

Optimisation relative to your space requirement Maybe you‘re restricted in the amount of space you have available but you want each of your training workstations to offer a high level of complexity. If so then the Compact Workstation with four integrated closed-loop control systems is the solution for you. As shown in the flow chart, the individual control systems can be activated by simply repositioning the ball valves. The flexible piping system enables you to change the flow scheme or integrate other components quickly and easily. Function The four control systems in the Compact Workstation can be operated individually. The level and flow rate control systems can be structured as a cascade control system through the addition of an appropriate controller. The layout of the sensors and servo drives permits experimentation with both continuous (e.g. P, I, PI, PID) and discontinuous action controller types (e.g. 2-point controllers). The pump can either be controlled directly or operated in controlled speed mode. The manipulated variable of the controller in the flow rate and pressure control systems can alternatively act upon a proportional directional control valve. A ball valve with pneumatic drive is built into the return between the high-level container and the lower reservoir. The pneumatic drive can be used to simulate a “load” for switching on a disturbance in the level control system or as an on-off valve for emergency switch-off.

Process automation – Compact Workstation

Piping and instrument flow chart An important part of project work in process engineering is developing a piping and instrument flow chart. A piping and instrument flow chart explains the electrical, measuring and control technology functions using measuring points and final control elements. The measurement variable or another input variable, its processing, its direction of action and directional specifications and positions should follow from the chart.

Mounting frame Can be equipped with accessories for controllers, control unit and/or touchpanel. It can also be converted from the ER format to DIN A4 format at any time by the user. The activation and/or control devices can be replaced in just seconds.

Pneumatic drive With ball valve and signal box. Training aims: Design and application areas of various metering and shut-off devices when controlling the flow of liquids.

Hybrid processes

Hybrid processes

Boundless variety Qualification solutions and training factories for production and process automation. Tell us what you need – we‘ll design your ideal learning environment and establish the required dependencies at process level. We look forward to designing solutions with you for special topics such as: – Water treatment – Cooling and refrigeration technology – pH value measurement – Conductivity measurement – Pneumatics in process engineering, for example slide valve actuators with positioners, specifically for the paper industry.

MPS® PA, combined with MPS® stations

It is only logical that the MPS® PA (process automation) stations can be combined with stations from the greater MPS® family. This makes MPS® an interesting proposition for basic and further training in many industries which are dominated by process automation but still require elements from production automation. The well thought-out modular design with clear-cut interfaces protects your investment and facilitates adaptation to future developments in components as well as open-loop and closed-loop control systems. This means that the system can be adapted to new requirements.

Production automation and process automation

AFB – The modular concept factory for all hybrid production tasks

The learning system for all processes associated with production automation and process automation. – Production – Handling of seals – Packaging – Filling – Transportation and routing – Storage – Input/output The ideal solution for hybrid production process requirements in the food sector. The platform connects stations and elements from the MPS® Modular Production System with stations from the MPS® PA learning system and the Compact Workstation. The system is therefore completely modular and new processes and training content can be added gradually. Project work with hands-on training can take place at individual stations, on partially integrated production lines and in a fully integrated learning factory.

Customer-specific solutions

You have specific requirements? Numerous installations across the globe have given rise to a range of solutions with a particular focus on hybrid automation. An example of this is provided by Siemens AG Professional Education Berlin, whose mixing and filling station demonstrates how a continuous flow process is brought into line with a gradual container filling process. The students experience an operational process showing the entire sequence of an automated customer order processing system.
