Just another pinch
3rd Quarter 2018, Electrical switching & drive systems & components


Juan José Albarracín (JJA) is among the market leaders in the production and marketing of high quality spices, such as paprika and pepper blends. To future-proof the quality of its products and to simplify the operation of its plants, JJA relies on extensive solutions from the Siemens product portfolio. These not only help the producer to improve the performance of its milling plants, but also increase plant availability and simplify control of the drives.

Until the new solutions were introduced, the products were still processed using largely manual processes. This meant that only limited or no use of product data could be made to optimise production sequences, and also made the process of troubleshooting and localising faults very complicated. The extensive modernisation of its operations using Siemens components such as a modern scada system, a new plant controller as well as converters and motor starters has allowed JJA to move its production into line with the latest state of the art technology.

The Siemens solution was rapidly and successfully integrated into the existing infrastructure, and allows simple plant operation, coupled with the assurance of high product quality. The production data can now be integrated into the existing enterprise resource planning system, improving both traceability and documentation. The selected configuration is additionally designed to permit trouble-free expansion of the plant at a later date. Detailed visualisation of the production sequences enables particularly intuitive plant operation, while the simple localisation of faults has meant a significant improvement to plant availability.
