BASF: Distributed Control System Conversion

, ,

A major Care Chemicals plant wanted to convert its existing Rosemount RS3 distributed control system to Emerson’s DeltaV DCS while expanding into a new process area. The existing area would remain with conventional I/O while the new process area would utilize AS-i and Foundation Fieldbus technology.

Since the plant was in a sold-out position, the conversion had to take place during a 10-day window between the Christmas and New Year’s holidays. CSA’s extensive team of field experts was able to complete the project and bring the plant back online in the promised timeframe. CSA was responsible for developing all functional specifications, system configuration, and commissioning.
