April 16, 2018 – Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) introduced a control technology solution that is designed to increases productivity for batch operations by allowing operators to “look ahead” into their processes and see a timeline of every task required to complete a product batch.
Honeywell’s Experion Batch, uses visualization technology to provide batch automation processes with the benefits of distributed control capability. This approach provides operators with insights into upcoming events or potential delays. It also makes operations less critically dependent on individual operator experience, which will help manufacturers overcome skill gaps at a time when more veteran operators are retiring.
Experion Batch is designed for industries such as pharmaceutical, specialty chemical and food processing. The technology eliminate the need for a centralized, dedicated batch server. This enables engineering and maintenance personnel to take a unit controller out of service without affecting other units. Experion Batch also allows plants to transition from recipe testing to execution while reducing testing and validation efforts, and it is aligned with international batch standards ISA S88 and IEC 61512-1.
Honeywell Process Solutions provides software solutions and instrumentation that help manufacturers find value through Honeywell Connected Plant, Honeywell’s Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solution. Process Solutions is part of Honeywell’s Performance
