How ADM Helped Restore a Plastics Manufacturing Facility

Mechanical breakdown
15 June 2021

ADM was contacted by one of our system integrator partners, who had a customer who had experienced an unfortunate power episode. This event had resulted in some Eurotherm process controllers and a PLC being damaged.

The Eurotherm controllers were a model that had been made obsolete since the plant was originally installed. Regardless of this, ADM was able to assist by offering a cost-effective upgrade solution within a short turnaround time.  

Using three Eurotherm T2550 process control modules that we had in stock, the system integrator was able to get the plastics manufacturing facility operating again in a relatively short time frame.

The upgrade also utilised a Harting ethernet switch, which is used as a communications bus in the control system, handling data inputs from the three Eurotherm process control modules, data to and from the data station, and a programming interface which can be accessed from a laptop.

This is an example of how ADMs expertise with Eurotherm and focus on stock and service enabled us to get a Eurotherm user back to operational status within a short period of time.
