  • FDT technology gives users centralized access to all devices.
  • FDT technology provides a common environment for configuring, operating, or maintaining any devices.
Overview:

Kyushu Mitsui Aluminium uses the UPM100 Power Monitor for its overall factory operations, and the DX1000 Paperless Recorder for its high-purity aluminum refining furnaces.

Overview:
  • Smooth and safe migration to CENTUM VP enhances production efficiency at major Australian gold mine.
  • The HMI stations instaled at the central control room, training system, primary crusher, workshop, and office are all connected via thesame communication bus.
Overview:
  • Configuration of complicated procedures in Exapilot leads to operational excellence.
  • DENKA wanted to standardize the operation, reduce workload and prevent operator errors.
Overview:
  • Successful, economical implementation of control system
  • Increased process availability, reduced maintenance costs, and lowered cost of ownership
Overview:
  • FDT technology gives users centralized access to all devices.
  • FDT technology provides a common environment for configuring, operating, or maintaining any devices.
Overview:
  • Xstrata designed and supplied a plant wide process control system for the project based on a Yokogawa CENTUM CS 3000 system.
  • Xstrata has used Yokogawa extensively in the past and trusted the reliability of the CS 3000 system.
Overview:
  • Easy-to-use report system
  • Electric power demand monitoring screen with enhanced real-time capability
  • Monitoring screens for estimated free calcium oxide content
  • Automatic production control ranging from schedule to instructions, current status display, actual data collection, and report output
Overview:
  • Realization of current and historical data viewing and storage
  • Achievement of easy measurement of alarm load and in-depth alarm analysis
Overview:
  • The solution was a remote connection via Microsoft Terminal Services across the internet.
  • It enables an Ausmelt technical expert in Melbourne to log on to the Yokogawa control system at Karabash in Russia.
Overview:

The use of recycled oil as an energy source presents a significant processing problem. ADMAG CA has been shown to provide reliable and stable flow measurement of recycled oil containing water.

Overview:

The slurry measurement is one of the most challenging application for magmeter. In this paper, Yokogawa's solution and expected benefit in aluminum slurry applications will be introduced. ADMAG magnetic flow meter series delivers fit-for-purpose solutions for the difficult applications in mining industry.

Overview:

Most zinc are produced at hydrometallurgically, where a high-grade zinc product can be obtained and valuable metals mixed in the raw material can be recovered. In the hydrometallurgy, the raw material of zinc concentrate is roasted and then dissolved in sulfuric acid to remove impurities. The process called leaching and pH control of the leachate is important.

Industry:Chemical, Power

Overview:

The discharge of improperly treated industrial chemicals and fuel gas can have a major impact on the environment, posing a serious threat to public health. Concurrent with the global growth of manufacturing operations to keep pace with market trends, many countries are taking measures to deal with environmental problems.

Overview:

The exhaust gases at a cement manufacturing plant contain a large amount of dust. To prevent dust from being released into the atmosphere, an exhaust gas treatment device such as an electrostatic precipitator (ESP) is used to remove the dust.

Overview:

Data critical for quality control in aluminum casting is monitored and recorded by the DX1000/DX2000. Various kinds of data from a holding furnace are batch recorded, and data during occurrence of alarms is recorded separately.

Application Note
Overview:

A horizontal rotary miller used to grind the limestone rocks with metallic balls as grinding stones. This is used as the raw ingredient to produce cement powder. The temperature needs to be monitored in order to control the process and the quality of the final product. The user was using an induction temperature measurement based on a rail system that was very fragile and therefore unreliable.

Overview:

The world of process automation is governed by procedures. While we like to refer to the process industries as being largely "continuous", this could not be further from the truth. Process manufacturing is constantly in flux.

Overview:

The automation suppliers that will be successful in the long term will be those that effectively address application or industry specific problems for end users with a value proposition that cannot be ignored. These problems exist throughout the process industries today, and they won't be solved by simply offering a product, but through a combination of hardware, software, services, application expertise, and knowledge.

Overview:

In ARC's view, customers need a compelling business value proposition to justify investment in any kind of automation. Vigilance and VigilantPlant were created with this in mind. Yokogawa's vision with VigilantPlant is to create an environment where plant personnel and operators are well informed, alert, and ready to take action. 

Overview:

Yokogawa has come a long way in making its message clear to the world of process automation. Last year, the company embarked on a full-scale global marketing campaign to make customers aware of the company's focus on system reliability, security, dependability, and robustness. Dubbed "Vigilance", the campaign created a unified message for the company and greatly helped expand awareness of the Yokogawa brand and corporate philosophy.

Overview:

Process automation end users are under more pressure than ever to do more with less. The current economic climate means that many automation capital projects are on hold. With capital budgets tighter than ever, users instead focus on operational budgets (where cost cutting is also a key concern), or on automation investments with a very rapid return on investment.

Overview:

In today's dynamic industrial marketplace, the only constant is change. Raw material costs, energy costs, market demands, environmental and safety regulations, technology, and even the nature of the labor force itself are constantly changing, and not always in predictable directions.
