Hungarian tank-farm goes digital

02/08/2006


Austin, TXEmerson Process Management recently completed a $500,000 digital plant-architecture project at the Gedeon Richter Pharmaceutical Co.’s tank farm in Budapest, Hungary. The project is an extension to the company’s central tank farm installation, which supplies four plants with solvents.

In planning the automation, Emerson determined that its PlantWeb had the technologies best suited to optimize start-up time and maximize operations and maintenance efficiencies—a key element was the company’s Fisher Design-GX control valve. Work on the expansion started in October 2004 and included: a Delta V digital automation system; AMS Suite: Intelligent Device Manager software; HART-based communications; 59 GX control-valves, with Fisher Fieldvue-DVC6000 digital valve-controllers; 52 Rosemount-2088 pressure transmitters; and services that included engineering and installation.

Designed in accordance with European standards, GX is a globe-style valve system that can control a wide range of process liquids, gases and vapors. The multilingual product configurator supplied with the GX valve enabled complete specification of the valve system, simplifying valve sizing, and automating actuator selection. Other integrated options available include a position transmitter and limit switches.
