Process Monitoring & Data Acquisition
The Process Monitoring and Data Acquisition System enhances the primary Programmable Logic Control (PLC) of the SCR system. The Process Monitoring and Data Acquisition System is designed to monitor real-time and historical process variables of the SCR system. The system gives the operator a visual representation of the complete process and its related data and allows him to respond to problems or out-of-limit variables as rapidly as possible. The monitoring system also provides extensive alarming, trending of important variables, statistical process control monitoring, data logging and reporting, automatic laboratory grading, a furnace charge weight input station, and additional process variable sensors. The Process Monitoring and Data Acquisition System provides an additional Human Machine Interface on the combustion control system and is designed to fully integrate with the computer control system of the Southwire shaft furnace system. The screens are in dual language for certain alphabets.
