CASE STUDIES

Success stories

We’re proud of the successes achieved with the PID Tuner.

pH and DO control at pharma company

A pharmaceutical company located asked DotX to analyse their data, and propose changes to the control system. In this post we describe what we did, and what the results were.

Arduino based PID control

The PID Tuner software comes with a full package for Arduino based projects.

pH loop tuning at pharma company

A biopharmaceutical company located in Poland asked DotX to provide the PID Tuner software and training. In this post we focuss on tuning of the pH loop.

Temperate control of a laminator prototype

One of our clients is developing a novel laminator. An essential part of the laminator is sufficiently accurate temperature control of products inside the laminator.

Flow control of paint dosing machine (at Batla group)

The Balta Group in Belgium produces carpets. Some of the carpets are dyed with different colors. In order to apply the dye correctly, the flow control system of the dye machine must be fast and accurate. Using the PID Tuner, the flow control loop improved by 400%.

Steam boiler pressure control

The boiler pressure control of a sludge dryer suffered from serious problems. To resolve the issues, the PID Tuner was used and the control system was restructured. This new control system was commisioned in one go, without the need for any retuning.

Destillation column control (at Dishman)

Dishman Netherlands manufactures vitamin D, cholesterol and lanolin, using, among others a distillation column. We implemented and tuned two PID controllers (using the PID Tuner) to automate this column. Besides the obvious advantages, the energy consumption reduced with at least 8%.

Pressure control at Tata steel

To make steel, Tata steel operates cokes furnaces that change coal into a fuel for the blast furnaces. The pressure in the furnaces should vary as litte as possible. Using the PID Tuner, the pressure variations reduced by more than 50%.
