Schneider Electric boosts dairy production
2nd Quarter 2018, Electrical switching & drive systems & components


Schneider Electric’s dairy solutions allow users to seize new market and profit opportunities, thanks to zero waste and 100% traceable production. This is achieved through Schneider’s EcoStruxure Hybrid DCS, which helps customers manage their dairy processes in an easy, smart and energy-efficient way. The new platform improves the production monitoring and control system, while making provisions for the company’s future expansion.

Woodlands Dairy, one of the largest dairies in South Africa, bought a second hand powder plant from Denmark. However the control system was outdated. Top of the agenda was a single platform that could integrate all the plants on site and preserve past investments in expensive assets and legacy systems, while making provision for future expansion. SchneiderElectric’s ArchestrA System Platform was selected for the following reasons:

• Universal data connectivity that could cope with Woodlands Dairy’s variety of PLCs.

• A distributed system.

• Easy to create reports and easy retrieval of historical data.

• Full redundancy and scalability.

• The high level of support from Schneider Electric.

Other process areas were also upgraded and these included a new CIP station, a new cream pasteuriser and butter plant, an upgrade to the milk pasteuriser, new pasteurised milk silo and milk lines, new pasteurised cream silo and a new milk reception area with its own CIP station.
