Flow control

The Balta Group in Belgium produces carpets. Some of the carpets are dyed with different colors. In order to apply the dye correctly, the flow control system of the dye machine must be fast and accurate. Using the PID Tuner, the flow control loop improved by 400%.

Steam boiler pressure control

The boiler pressure control of a sludge dryer suffered from serious problems. To resolve the issues, the PID Tuner was used and the control system was restructured. This new control system was commisioned in one go, without the need for any retuning.

Dishman Netherlands

Dishman Netherlands manufactures vitamin D, cholesterol and lanolin, using, among others a distillation column. We implemented and tuned two PID controllers (using the PID Tuner) to automate this column. Besides the obvious advantages, the energy consumption reduced with at least 8%.

Tata steel

To make steel, Tata steel operates cokes furnaces that change coal into a fuel for the blast furnaces. The pressure in the furnaces should vary as litte as possible. Using the PID Tuner, the pressure variations reduced by more than 50%.
