Retrofitting a major process plant for aluminium production
Achieving a more environmentally friendly aluminum
production with increased production capacity. All mechanical
switches are to be monitored for lead breakage and several hundred
valves in the exhaust gas purification system are to be automated.
Although there is a great number of widely distributed inductive
and optical sensors, cable trees and junction boxes are to be
avoided. The system is to be realized in several steps and will
contain an integrated safety concept.
