INDUSTRIAL OLEOCHEM PRODUCTS

Edible oils are offloaded from ships and pumped into bulk tanks. How much oil is received, and how much is delivered to whom? These are just two of the questions that were asked. A solution was provided in the form of mounting seven Endress and Hauser Micropilot level sensors on a Profibus P.A. network. The sensors are connected to a Pepperl and Fuchs segment coupler on the P.A side and the D.P side is connected into the Moeller Profibus master card. The information is sent to Adroit Scada with logging, trending and auto dial out in the case of an alarm. The alarm would flag if product levels change this would alert the management of any transfer of product legally or to control possible theft or loss of product due to a broken pipe or flange. Planning is also easier as stock control is automatically taken care of.
