Our flagship CIP station CENTRASIP and pasteurizer GALAXIAS were manufactured with the best quality components from top suppliers
We supplied and installed a CENTRASIP CIP station with components from Alfa Laval, Endress+Hauser, Festo, Samson, Siemens and many others. The CENTRASIP station is fully automated by our software and controlled by the central SCADA.
All the parameters are adjustable separately for each circuit by the operator. Our vast experience in CIP systems and the unit’s automation system guarantee optimal use of chemicals, low water consumption and reduction of waste. The use of regenerated water greatly reduces water consumption by at least 30%.
At the same time, we modernized the existing CIP station, replacing old sensors, instruments, valves and the control panel. A new regeneration water tank was added and the modernized CIP unit was integrated to the central automation and SCADA.
We supplied and installed our skid-mounted GALAXIAS pasteurizer unit with Alfa Laval heat exchanger with a capacity of 12.000 Lt/h. It is equipped with components from Alfa Laval, Endress+Hauser, Festo, Samson, and Siemens among others.
The fully automated GALAXIAS, has a power and automation panel with SIEMENS equipment (PLC series S7-1500) with a 12’’ touch screen. The pasteurizer is cleaned through its own cleaning circuit, optimizing uptime. The use of the equipment is continuously monitored through the central SCADA with corresponding maintenance alarms.
Upgrading the existing pasteurizer
Alongside, AS Hellas upgraded the existing pasteurizer and integrated it to the central SCADA, making optimal use of the existing equipment. The upgrading is adding new functionality to the pasteurizer and proves that the smart factory of the future with connected devices doesn’t necessarily mean huge investments, but it could be realized in small and well planned steps.
Central SCADA system
The new central SCADA system is controlling the whole operation and guaranties product quality, traceability and productivity. It is comprised of two redundancy servers. The servers run the Siemens WinCC V7.3 operating system that supports access via smartphone or tablet. The central SCADA system integrates the reception, pasteurization, cleaning, refrigeration and storing functions and it is capable of integrating the full spectrum of the plant’s processes.
The full configuration of the SCADA system:
- Siemens CPU S7-1500
- Two DELL servers PowerEdge
- Two SCADA WinCC V7.3
- Siemens WEBUX for access via Smartphone or tablet
The system is scalable and new functions for future needs can be added easily.
