Process Optimization and Energy Management with SIMATIC PCS 7 in the Fertilizer Industry (Video)

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
This media system offers you comprehensive information, illustrative explanations and numerous general and technical videos on the topic of SIMATIC PCS 7 in the fertilizer industry.

Fertilizer production is a very energy-intensive process. An optimal plant operation and the efficient use of resources are decisive factors for economic success. This must be done while meeting the highest safety standards and quality requirements. Siemens products and in particular the SIMATIC PCS 7 process control system help dealing with the requirements of safety, efficiency and quality:

  • With engineering/simulation tools such as COMOS and SIMIT and add-ons such as Advanced Process Control (APC) for process optimization
  • With a uniform and standardized operating concept (HMI+) and Advanced Process Graphics (APG) for easy process control and monitoring
  • With a safety-instrumented system that ranges from the sensor and the controller through engineering with SIMATIC Safety Matrix, right through to the actuator
  • With energy efficient solutions for energy management , for monitoring and control of energy consumption
  • With process analytics and gas chromatography for quality control
