Rockwell Automation announces standardized processes for cement producers

June 14, 2019 — Rockwell Automation has enhanced its process functions for cement plants. The functionality includes pre-engineered and tested process instructions and operator faceplates developed with cement companies to standardize equipment and system configuration and optimize operations across cement plants.

The cement functions have been added to the Rockwell Automation PlantPAx DCS, allowing them to be integrated and utilized across all plant operations. The modern DCS uses a common automation platform for integration between critical areas of a cement plant, including process, power, information and safety control. 

The functions include processes such as motor and drives control, valve operations, and sequencing group controls, among others. These functions help cement producers get one step further on their journey to achieve a fully connected cement plant – offering opportunities to improve plantwide efficiencies, reduce safety risks and drive better decision-making. 

Included as part of this launch are additional features including support for larger systems, improved library instructions, Windows Server 2016 support and Asset Centre 9.0 backup agent. These enhancements, as well as the additional functionality, improve control in all industries.
