to minimize shutdown time and to support additional functionality. The upgraded automation system, deployed as a single automation platform for PM 11, includes less hardware, with attendant cost savings on spares and reduced maintenance services. The new platform also delivers new tools and diagnostic functions for comprehensive remote support. The upgrade experience was facilitated by a set of migration tools that made it possible to upgrade all applications and displays error free, resulting in immense time savings. The large legacy DCS application migration for PM 11 was accomplished in only three days. "Continuous improvement in both cost and quality is always top of mind for us," says Max Oberhumer, mill director at Sappi Gratkorn. "We have a strong relationship with our customers and make a point of understanding their needs. This investment will ensure that we continue to meet them." The Gratkorn automation upgrade enhances both process visibility and operator effectiveness. Paper machine supervisory controls have provided the ability to reduce product variability and to mitigate process errors. With the upgraded system, the Gratkorn mill can now model, control, and dynamically optimize the papermaking process. With multivariable model predictive control technology, the mill has minimized material and energy usage, improved product quality and machine operation, and minimized grade change losses. Using patented technology, the automation system can minimize the future predicted variation of all controlled variables in the papermaking process while honing both the quality constraints and any physical constraints on manipulated variables. In addition, the quality control system provides a user-friendly operator interface, streamlined configuration, and support for multiple grade tuning groups. Automated model identification tools and the flexibility of the multivariable controls let operators implement advanced control strategies without the need for custom coded solutions. When new sensors are added to the paper machine, only the process model needs to be updated-no changes are required to the controller itself. For fine paper applications like those on PM 11, weight, ash, and opacity can be tightly controlled while minimizing fiber and filler costs. As a result, even small incremental improvements can result in large economic benefits. Easy-to-understand displays let operators preview grade changes before they execute, monitor their progress, and review previous grade changes. The upgraded automation system for controlling processes, machinery, and drives gives Gratkorn a single comprehensive automation solution. Key benefits for the mill include increased access to diagnostic information, single alarm and event logging, and faster control responses. The system provides integration with safety management as well. 793097_MWN.indd 1 The new safety management capability integrates process safety data, applications, system diagnostics, and critical control strategies, and executes SIL-defined safety applications in a fully redundant architecture. Safety management enables compliance with plant safety standards, better system reliability, and increased process uptime that leads to a safe production environment and operational savings.
