Because the filter presses date back to 1997, customer’s requirement was to revise safety features and update them to today’s safety standards. After careful safety review, Roxia suggested to improve the perimeter safety and new industrial automation system.
An important safety improvement was new control system. The old system was outdated and needed to be replaced. Earlier, only a single component failure could have stopped the whole filter, because some parts are simply no longer available.
The new Siemens automation system is more reliable, has better user interface, improved safety features offering better plant field automation and all components are easily available. Since 1997, the technology has rapidly developed and among the rest, brought safety improvements which are nowadays standard in such systems. Overall, Roxia delivered a complete modern automation solution including hardware, instrumentation, and software.
Roxia provided completely new Siemens automation solution for all four filter presses.
