Sugar industry

Pro-Control has completed dozens of industrial automation projects in the sugar industry, from improving technological processes to comprehensive modernization and expansion of sugar factories. We carried out projects in Poland, Spain, Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Ukraine and Latvia.

We have a specialized group of engineers handling projects for the sugar industry. The benefits of introducing modern industrial automation and control solutions are reflected in costs and profits through:

  • monitoring of pressure and thermal parameters
  • duration of individual production stages, energy consumption
  • the degree of use of OEE machines
  • monitoring of production media
  • water consumption, energy resources
  • easy diagnostics of failures, preview of key parameters for maintenance and production managers
  • increasing the productivity of the sugar factory, improving the quality of sugar (purity, color)

Measured values, set parameters, balance values, or important alarms – these are only selected key information that can be presented in the form of synoptic and archived (trends).
Selected projects made by Pro-Control in the sugar industry:

  • Modernization and expansion of sugar plants for the processing of 11.5 thousand. tonnes per day – application of a comprehensive automation system and metering of all important installation locations, full control of the assumed technological and production parameters
  • Modernization of the dryer automation system based on ABB’s DCS
  • Comprehensive automation of sugar factories and raw sugar refineries
  • Modification of the production control system in the field of data exchange, visualization and archiving
  • Delivery and replacement of frequency converters
