One of our major projects for Kellogg's was the automation of a liquid batching system. This project involved the upgrade to the electrical, gas burner and safety system. The existing control system was removed and an Allen Bradley (AB) control system was installed using device net and point I/O. Eleven device net nodes were installed to handle the field I/O and an AB Panel view plus was installed to manage the recipe, batching, machine status, trending and alarm functions. Five analogue pneumatic modulating valves were installed to control the batching system.

Five Pilz PNOZ Multi's were installed to bring the system safety up to a Category 3 standard.

The existing gas burner controls were removed a new burner management system installed.
