System enhances process control and stability
Acron in Veliky Novgorod has switched NPK unit No. 1 to a process automation system (PAS). Now all of the Company’s NPK units are controlled by the Schneider Electric Distributed Control System (DCS).
The PAS implemented at the first unit (and previously at the other two units) will enhance production control and stability with online data and high functionality. In addition, the DCS ensures better monitoring of operator performance and reduces human error.
These upgrades were part of a scheduled overhaul at NPK unit No. 1, which was completed in just 16 days, instead of the usual three weeks. It also included replacement of pump units and other production equipment.
