ANDRITZ AUTOMATION to deliver plant control systems to Compass Minerals

February 9, 2016

ANDRITZ AUTOMATION, part of international technology Group ANDRITZ, headquartered in Austria, has received an order to supply plant control systems for the sulfate of potash (SOP) project in Ogden, Utah.

The scope of supply includes the design and supply of electrical power distribution and motor control equipment, the ANDRITZ dynamic process simulator for operator training, a control system, patented ANDRITZ BrainWave advanced process control applications for the crystallizer, and operator training. The ANDRITZ production simulation process solution will enable Compass Minerals to predict how the new SOP plant will behave from both a dynamic process and control standpoint before start-up. 

As a “virtual plant,” the ANDRITZ dynamic simulator will enable Compass Minerals to verify and test the chemical processes as well as the control logic (including the advanced control on the crystallizer), and it will be interfaced with the control system as an operator training simulator. The combination of electrical distribution and motor control equipment allows the entire system to be pre-tested against the simulator, resulting in a single fully integrated control system ready to operate from day one.

The ANDRITZ GROUP is a globally leading supplier of plants, equipment, and services for hydropower stations, the pulp and paper industry, the metalworking and steel industries, and for solid/liquid separation in the municipal and industrial sectors. ANDRITZ AUTOMATION helps industrial facilities around the world to realize their full potential by maximizing output, minimizing costs, and optimizing operations.
