Make Do and Mend – Retrofit
“Retrofit” or “Revamp” is modernization of plants and systems as a cost-effective alternative to a new constructed system. Often only a few aspects of FÜLL systems require improvement after a long operating life. Like for new systems, the plant safety is the outmost important thing to keep in mind.
For this reason, FÜLL offers modernizations individually and consults with all decisions to make. The final degree of modernization will be defined together with the customer.
The following will give an insight to the possibilities, that can be executed.
- Electric control
- Valve control
- Valve cleaning unit
- Wear parts
- Worth knowing / Machines from other manufacturers
The centerpiece of the electric control is the computer, which saves all important system parameters as well as administrating formulations, job data and protocols. But also a computer in industrial quality is aging and should be replaced and its software updated.
The development in automation goes forward in a speedy manner and the trend towards ethernet communication is naturally part of the current controls offered by FÜLL. New possibilities for remote maintenance via internet and a secure VPN tunnel (Virtual Private Network) are associated. On this way FÜLL service personnel can analyse problems down to the PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) and render assistance.
The valves used in the dispensing centers FS 182.2 and FS 2005.2 series are controlled by servo drives. They guarantee a highly dynamic and precise dispensing process. The exact valve opening allows for optimal adjustment of the dispensing parameters or rather allow the system to determine and optimize the parameters automatically by the dispensing software CALIPSOPRO.
The valve actuator is the frequently used construction group in the dispensing center, because all valves are opened and closed continously. A fast and precise stroking is essential, because not only the operning and closing speeds are relevant, but also the compliance with the correct stroke for coarse and fine dispensing are critical.
The dispensing valves in the most gravimetric dispensing centers are installed on a valve platform, which is actually a powered sledge for positioning the currently required valve under the valve actuator. the platforms servo drive is of the same type as the the one used for the valve actuation, simplifying spare part inventoring.
A fast and precise positioning at a speed of generally 250 mm/s reduces dispensing times considerably. This drive also keeps its current position “in mind” after a power fail restart. This significantly simplifies system restarts after emergency stops or maintenance, too.
Valve cleaning unit
The modernization or conversion with an automatic valve cleaning unit is naturally also a retrofit solution. The valve cleaning unit is the perfect upgrade for the dispensing center, when it is not possible to manage manual cleaning the valve heads during production peaks. It’s a reliable protection against dirt and migration of adherent substances. It also frees extra capacities, because it safes a lot of time for the operator.
The closed valve cleaning systems combines chemical with mechanical cleaning. The valve heads are cleaned with a product-compatible cleansing agent by rotating brushes. The cleansing agent is used in circulation to reduce consumption.
Nevertheless sealings and hoses are exposed to chemical and mechanical stress and therefore to be seen as the main wear parts in every system. A cracked hose can disrupt production for hours and wastes personnel resources. These kind of wear induced problems can be better seen by externel personnel, wich is not working every day at the particular system.
Naturally FÜLL Systembau GmbH only uses high-quality hoses, to reduce maintenance.
Therefore our remark:
Operators safety is the highest priority to FÜLL. All changes and enhancements are made according to the newest standards being effective.
But FÜLL never loses track for the main objective – the cost-effective modernization. Sometimes it is more cost-effective to easily exchange construction groups, because complex modifications imposed by technical supervising institutions may be higher in price.
FÜLL systems follow a consequent systematic design to allow for both possibilities.
Worth knowing / Machines from other manufacturers
Naturally FÜLL Systembau GmbH offers retrofit solutions for third-party products, also.
This way the familiar system design can be sustained and the high-quality FÜLL technics optimally prepare the production for the future.
Design and construction of pipeplines are important parts of process plants. These works need to be carried out by qualified expert staff. Our engineers and technicians possess the required experience and knowledge to design the pipings according to applicable rules, laws and regulations tailored to your process requirements.
FÜLL minimizes the installation troubles for the customers by preassembling the pipeline at our site in Idstein. Consequently welding is left out at customer site. This comes in handy for facilities in hazardous areas, where welding would disrupt the whole production. A considerable reduction of the construction time and increased safety for your employees are the results.
As a specialized company according to §19 I WHG (Water Resource Act), FÜLL’s pipeworks naturally fulfill the current standards and are manufactured by certified welders according to EN 287-1 certification.
