Plant Automation

The control panel is a bench-type switchboard and has a mimic diagram on it which illustrates the material flow and electric motors in the plant on it. It helps to monitor and control all operations in process.

Crusher Automation

Automation unit maintains maximum production capacity by adjusting process parameters online and improves productivity and quality while reducing maintenance and operating costs by preventing overload.

With the automation system; get rid of complicated power and control panels. You can easily interfere any electricity breakdowns in your plant by simplified control system that every electrician can easily understand. Your plant will operate either manually or with automation system with full capacity and productivity.

Some basic features of the Automation System…

Sequential start: To prevent a sudden overcharge on transformers and generators, the crushers in the plant will sequentially start according to their power capacities. Then the plant starts operating from the back to the front with following to the time parameters determined earlier.

Sequential Stop: Firstly, the feeders shut down after executing the stop order. Following the feeders, conveyors, screens and crushers shut down according to the time parameters respectively. For the crushers to shut down, it’s expected to reach the current consumption value during no – load running period.

Interlock Working: The performance of a motor depends on the other motor operating before it. A non-operating motor shuts off the other associated motors with it. The crushers are only stopped in case of any breakdowns belong to them (e.g. overcharge, oil pressure). Thus, stops are avoided often, which caused by minor breakdowns. After trouble shooting, the stopped motors start again and the plant continue to operate in regular performance.

Electric Current Control on Crushers : The electric current on crushers is controlled continuously and the feeder is interfered according to this current value. Thus, overloading of crushers is avoided and continuous flow in the plant is maintained.

Crusher Maintenance Period: Maintenance time parameters are entered for the crushers on the program. When the run time of the crusher reach its limit, which is pre-defined earlier, operator is warned.

Animation: The operation in the plant, breakdowns, electric current values on crushers, feeder speed, belt weigher values and crusher run time can be traceable.

Breakdown Controls: Thermal switch cutout, corded circuit breaker, belt shift, belt breakage, electric current, greasing and hydraulic adjustments for crushers are controlled.

Belt Weigher: Tonnage values on the belt weighers in the plant are monitored instantly, logged and reported whenever needed.

Note: Available only in Computer Aided Automation systems.

Automatic Filling: Truck filling is automatically controllable according to required tonnage values if belt weighers are occupied on the stockpiling conveyors or on the conveyors under the stockpiling hoppers. Even in systems in which magnetic cards are used, truck driver himself may perform the loading process by swiping his card to devices without an assistance of a loading staff.

Note: Available only in Computer Aided Automation systems.

Malfunction Records: You can see the malfunctions on the error screen. “Tertiary Crusher Discharge Belt Recording ” is one of the faults you can see on the screen. Also, ” Maintenance for Cone Crusher” , “Electric Current is high for Cone Crusher”, “Primary crusher is working idle 30 minutes.” you can keep these such records and can get report whenever you need.
