CentrifugePAC: Centrifuge Control Application

CentrifugePAC Features ECT provides a complete centrifuge application based on Rockwell Automation's Compact Logix platform. CentrifugePAC has configuration modes allowing it to be easily adapted for centrifuges from various manufacturers. A complete HMI interface has been developed that provides graphical indications of tank levels, flow rates and operational modes for corn oil extraction systems. This software is field proven and ready for installation into your centrifuge application.

CentrifugePAC Features:

  • Configurable times for all discharge and feed cycles
  • Automatic CIP cycle
  • Flow rate calculations based on tank volumes and tank geometry
  • Multiple centrifuges in a single control platform
  • Control for filter motors and other auxiliary equipment
  • Speed monitoring and VFD control
  • Vibration monitoring
  • Automatic brake operation
  • Standard HMI screens for operations, engineering and maintenance
  • Complete operations manual including screen shots and configuration examples
CentrifugePAC can be integrated with other plant functions using Rockwell Automation’s PlantPAX to create a state-of-the-art control system for industrial plant control. ECT has extensive experience with VFD control, plant automation and advanced process integration techniques. Our projects in the bio-fuels market range from controlling a single machine to complete plant control systems.
