The Challenges and the SolutionsThe biggest challenge was applying the latest digital technology. Digital and pneumatic systems are fundamentally different in design and function. It took about five months to do a detailed study of all the control loops and configure the production control system, and another month to do all cabling/wiring and systems installation. In addition to the wiring of about 5,000 I/O points for the new systems, some field equipments were replaced. At the same time, operators underwent training in the new PCS at Yokogawa’s Rayong office and engineers and maintenance personnel went to Yokogawa’s Bangkok office for training in system configuration using feedback and sequence control functions. Yokogawa Thailand provided customer support from start to finish of this reinstrumentation project. To improve safety, the ProSafe-RS SIS was installed to give the polymerization process an emergency shutdown capability, and the SIS was integrated with the PCS. With this system, every point in the SIS can be monitored from the human machine interface (HMI) in the same manner as the PCS. In addition, all PCS and SIS HART field devices can be monitored from the central control room with the Plant Resource Manager (PRM) package, enabling a more predictive and proactive maintenance approach that reduces total cost of ownership (TCO). Also, all process data can be handled in an integrated manner by the Exaquantum PIMS for improved product quality and system operation. Through solutions such as these, Yokogawa Thailand is working with its customers to help them achieve a VigilantPlant.About HDPEMarketed under the POLENE trademark, this polymer resin features properties such as high density, high stiffness, high impact strength, opacity, and good chemical resistance. HDPE is used in a variety of applications including consumer packaging, beverage bottles, pipes, and ropes.Then (pneumatic panel)Now (PCS/DCS)Success Story Collection22IRPC-HDPE / Thailand
