Cement plant automation at Heidelberg Cement
The raw mill subsystem and cement mill subsystem can be automatically turned on and off. The temperature and current of the supply oil system of the mill and main equipment are monitored and controlled and can be optimized and adjusted by manipulating the parameters.
The vertical kiln subsystem comprises the equipment on/off monitor of the vertical kiln product line, automatically watering in raw mill to form ball, fire offset automatic correction and vertical kiln calcining process smart control, etc.
Integrated control of the wet mill and the coal mill has been realized in the rotary kiln subsystem. Simultaneous monitoring and control of the equipment, production and energy consumption of the rotary kiln product line can be partially automated. The distribution subsystem mainly inspects the operation of the transformers and large-scale hosts in all distribution rooms and generates a record.
Each subsystem connects to the company’s existing management network via Ethernet
