Smart Reactor Production Monitoring System-an Industry 4.0 Application in the Chemical Industry

Adem Kayar, Fatih Öztürk


Decrease in costs. More production flexibility. More efficient processes. These are one of the common demands of manufacturing enterprises in almost every sector. In this marketplace where there is very serious competition, the most important factor in the chemical industry is competitiveness as in every sector. The best way to take advantage of competitive advantages can be with integrated and innovative electrification, automation and digitalization solutions. Completing the digital transformation includes many disciplines, from engineering and design to automation, information technology and lifecycle management. Adopting digitalization lies in the merging of different expert knowledge, working in many different disciplines that are complex, able to offer the best solution. This strategy is also the motivation behind the strategic cooperation initiated by the German government in 2011 to promote Industry 4.0. In this article, in a chemical factory that produces paint, the project implementation of industrial automation and control systems and the details of the collection, recording, monitoring and reporting of the requested information in accordance with the Industry 4.0 concept of this application are explained. The article explains in detail how a real Industry 4.0 software application is applied in the chemical industry producing paint and reveals the benefits of Industry 4.0 in process automation. At the same time, this project, which is described in this article and implemented in a real paint production factory, will give new ideas to the industrial enterprises that are trying to realize the fourth industrial revolution and digitalization which has been on the agenda recently.
