Chemical plant ICL Brasil will be the first facility to use the Experion Orion Console by Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS).
The state-of-the-art Experion Orion Console provides a single visual workplace that is designed to reduce operator fatigue and increase plant production.
The console is a large, ultra-high definition display with touch screen capabilities and clear status readings of operations in a single glance. It also shows operating limits and targets.
The upgrades to the ICL production facility, which also includes the use of Honeywell’s Universal I/O technology, is aimed at improving the efficiency and effectiveness of plant operators.
"This project reflects ICL Brasil's bold and pioneering vision for its business by better helping its operators perform their jobs, reducing costs and saving time on the overall project," Francisco Casulli, HPS business leader for Brazil, said. "Experion Orion truly changes the concept of 'plant operations' by transforming the process operators into profit operators. These operators not only understand how the plant works, but how to make it run more efficiently and profitably."
ICL Brasil Industrial Manager Arnaldo Dias Jr. explained why they decided to implement the Experion Console.
"The Cajati plant has been an important part of our company's success for almost 30 years," Dias said. "For this upgrade, we needed technology that would help us boost our competitiveness and improve our leading position as the premier manufacturer of phosphoric acid. Honeywell's technology will enable us to do that."
HPS is also working on projects around the world in chemical plants in Chile, Mexico, the United States, Korea, Australia, Russia, Saudi Arabia and Oman.
