Scope of work
We needed to make upgrades at Parmalat in Lusaka Zambia. It was 4 different projects that needed upgrades for better production times, making it easier for operators to work there and making the production totals much more in shorter times.
Initial Work Done.
- Mixing Area – Replace one 5000 liter mixing tank with two 10 000 liter Tanks with a 1200 PLC and a KTP 700 HMI to indicate levels.
- Milk Recovery – Replace an old 500 liter tank that was rejected for production use anymore with a 2000 liter tank with a LOGO PLC and HMI for level control, High and low level to put on a siren when the tank is empty or full and a product pump to empty the tank.
- Cream line – Upgrade the cream line with a mass flow meter for pumping a certain amount of liters and not to guess how many liters is pumped.
- Yogurt – We replaced 2 old tanks with 2 new 4000 liter tanks , 2 new 5 000 liter tanks and 2 new 10 000 liter tanks. They can mix 20 000 liters incase of 5000 liters on a time. We putted in a 1200 PLC with a KTP 700 HMI to indicate all the tanks level and temperature.
