The purpose of this installation is to take the SJ/DJ pipe from A-Deck and to transport that pipe to the firing line (B-Deck) and perform his alignment with the pipeline being processed.
The PH system is intended for 2 different process modes:
- Single Joint supply Ð feed single joints pipe (Portside, starboard side or both line)
- Double Joint supply Ð feed double joints pipes (Starboard side line)
As Nazari Automazioni, we have developed the PLC software for the pipe transportation from the beginning to the end of the process line. The PH can be done manually using the commands positioned on the thirty-two consoles present along the line or automatically without the aid of an operator.
The process is managed and monitored by two 46Ó touchscreen monitors where the SCADA system is running. From the SCADA is it possible to see the actual position of pipes in real-time.
Through the maintenance PC, it is possible to start the HMI of each machine for maintenance, set-up and calibration purpose.
All installed controllers are fail-safe to guarantee the functional safety of machines and plant through the numerous safety sensors and barriers installed along the line.
