We’re proud of the technical and electrical proficiency that we demonstrate on each task here at Castle Control. So, in order to give you better insight into the ways in which we operate – and how we make those operations successful – we thought we’d show you some of our favourite projects:
Manufacturing Vessel – Jacket Service Controls
Giusti Manufacturing Vessel Heating & Cooling control system successfully completes Site Acceptance Tests for a local pharmaceutical manufacturer in Nottingham.
The existing control system had been found to be unreliable. Certain new products required tighter tolerances than the vessel could deliver. Over time the existing tolerances have become harder and harder to achieve.
We were challenged to provide a system that could keep within a tolerance of +/- 1.5 DegC. This was achieved using Allen Bradley Ethernet IP architecture between the following devices:
- Control Logix PLC
- Point IO – RTD, D-A & Digital IO
- PanelView 7 HMI – The system leverages Rockwell Automation PlantPax add-on’s & faceplates
- SMC EX260 Ethernet/IP Gateway and valve station
- A West limit controller was used for hardwired high temperature cut-off.
Finally a Micro Epsilon IR Camera was ﬁtted. The control system shows two traces on the HMI. The ﬁrst trace being the RTD mounted at the base of the vessel, the second trace being the IR camera mounted topside looking down onto the product. This highlights any thermal transfer issues during the process.Get in touch to find out what we can do for you
Wash Bay CIP Control System
Wash bay control system successfully completes Factory Acceptance Tests for a local pharmaceutical manufacturer in Nottingham.
The system safely allocates and dispenses pre-determined quantities of CIP water to the wash bay, only once the predetermined temperature and pressure criteria are achieved.
To achieve this, an Allen Bradley Safety PLC was used in conjunction with safe IO, Guard Master 440G-LZ locking solenoids & SMC VP544 safety valves.
The system leverages Rockwell Automation PlantPax add-on’s & faceplates.Get in touch to find out what we can do for you
