Minimally invasive and maximally innovative
Integration of the HAVER CPA Online optical measuring system is just that simple.
The integration of an optical measurement process therefore only requires minimally invasive interventions in existing structures: both in the areas of the plant architecture as well as the data infrastructure. For this reason, you can expect almost no downtime for installation in existing plants.
The HAVER CPA is an optical measuring system for monitoring particle parameters, which fits in a car. This “small footprint” of the hardware makes the physical integration of the system into a production plant exceptionally easy. Not only the dimensions of the components are relevant here, but particularly important is also the minimal invasiveness of intervention in existing components of the system. Sampling from downpipes is currently the most popular method for taking samples.
This sampling method only requires a small hole in a downpipe. A second access point is required if the samples are to be directly returned.
As the technical communication connection is made via known standards - accordingly, the integration into an existing DCS is possible without additional effort. Irrespective of whether your DCS is based on bus systems from Siemens for example, or OPC-UA standards are used: The hardware and software of the optical measuring system are compatible. State-of-the-art technological components operate symbiotically in a HAVER CPA Online installation.
The measuring instrument has been constantly developed over 20 years and is continually optimized according to changing standards
All parties benefit
Integration into the DCS offers you a considerable increase in automation. In this way, you eliminate many uncertainties that has been accepted for too long. Previous manual user activities are defined, standardised and shifted to a higher level with an optical/automated system. Since concerns that there will be inaccuracies in data collection are no longer an issue, you can fully focus on the production with your mind at ease. The measurement data are made available to you regularly and reliably - around the clock. All you have to do is convert the data into the corresponding control commands.
All positions in the production chain benefit in many ways.
- The laboratory is able to focus on and invest a greater amount of time in more complex tests.
- The control centre immediately has more data points at its disposal and can identify trends and tendencies much earlier and take action at an early stage.
- Production can be better planned - among other things with regard to expensive wear-and-tear repairs. The same applies accordingly to all other related areas of the production.
The new database: transparent, objective, reliable
An optical, fully integrated measuring instrument is capable of collecting more data points within a few weeks than conventional monitoring in a whole year. At the same time, this equipment provides you with various additional information, which in combination enables multi-layered trend analyses for example.
|Current number of manual samplings and tests per day||Your data: 1-3 / days|
|Number of CPA samplings and tests: up to 2 - 6 / hour (24/7)||CPA Online: 24 – 72 / day|
In addition to the pure quantity, you will also benefit especially from the significantly higher data quality. The data are of high quality for two reasons in particular.
- Firstly, they are characterized by an unprecedented depth of detail provided by the wide range of measured values per particle.
- Secondly, these characteristic values are collected completely objectively and no longer depend on the experience of the persons involved. This eliminates the susceptibility to errors due to human intervention.
You can therefore be confident on one thing: a reliable and transparent database, which will increase the efficiency and reliability of your processes.
