Automation process enables uniformity and versatility

Thanks to its new, highly automated mixing system, chemicals and ingredients distribution company, Brenntag, has achieved more flexibility, better uniformity and full traceability.

When Brenntag asked the team from Init to develop a completely new, automated mixing system, the key word was flexibility. And that’s what they got: With the new facility, operators can create and change mixes fast and easily. The new mixing plant can handle up to 200 different chemical emulsions for the food, pharma, cleaning and metal industry. The facility itself is equipped with nine mixing tanks and about 25 raw material tanks.

We need flexibility across the board – everything has to be flexible including the mixing process itself, sequence, quantities, and so on. The system operates with a batch system that makes it easy for us to set up new recipes

explains Plant Manager, Poul-Erik Conradsen

High automation level for full control and full flexibility

Conradsen says that the system also provides full traceability, so they know at all times precisely what has been added and when. He is also happy with the user friendliness of the automation setup, which means that production operators find the system easy to use and easy to teach to new colleagues.

 

The automated process, control system and traceability means that Brenntag’s customers get the exact same mix every time. Moreover, the level of automation means that the system can be controlled remotely. The contract with Init also covers remote support, which means that supporters from Init can log into the system and provide immediate help if needed.
