Denca has completed the automation of the control system for Duerr's new peanut butter facility.

Denca produced a programme which was written in HMI software and the control panel built and tested.

A Siemens S7 PLC with three racks was deployed with Mitsubiahi inverters as part of the panel.

A ladder rack was installed and the cables dropped through the ceiling using stainless steel trunking.Denca's involvement also extended to the filling and packaging side of the facility with the automation of between 10 and 12 conveyors introducing automation to this part of the process for the first time.

Denca's programmer spent a week with the operators on site to ensure they were familiar and comfortable with the new system.
