Design & Consult
The main objective of this project was to monitor the secondary and tertiary crushers on the crushing plant of Lafarge to prevent them from overheating. The control system was implemented on the secondary and tertiary sections of a crushing plant to monitor the two crushers and prevent them from overheating.
Our Solution to the Problem:
Parameters to be monitored included: oil temperatures, pressures, running hours, etc. It provided the operator with real-time information from the plant via a user-friendly human machine interface. Interlocking was added between motors as well as fault detection from the main soft starters. A remote start/stop control station was also added to give user the ability to review the alarm history.
This client now has the peace of mind that he gets the necessary local support from a local systems integrator that is less than 100 km away. In the event of quick fault finding remote support is also available.
