challenges

Challenges

  • Difficult to manually estimate storage capacity of sulphuric acid
  • Irregular shape of tanks
  • High temperature which generate toxic fumes
  • Lack of alerts/warnings for fluctuations in steam/temperature levels
  • Relying on traditional SCADA to get data
  • Expensive installation and maintenance of SCADA
  • Tedious and elaborate process to access data

Solutions

  • Integrated KarIoT's IoT solution with PLC and removed SCADA for data acquisition
  • Reduce infrastructure cost for real time monitoring over the scada solution by 60%
  • Providing real-time data via a cloud server and accessible on web and mobile devices
  • Alerts and warning system for any tampering or fluctuation in temperature levels, fumes, etc
  • Introduced weighment integration to check the weight of the product without manual intervention
  • Automated all manual operations with regular shift-based reports. Drastically reduce manual efforts and labor costs
  • Alert on fluctuations thereby reducing the overall product loss

Innovation

  • KarIoT devices have the ability to read data from other devices which have RS485 and UART output
  • A robust dashboard that has customized settings, alerts, and notifications
  • By fitting anti-corrosion level sensors we are able to avoid damages due to fumes and extend the life of the device

Results

KarIoT has brought innovation to their modern acid storage facilities by automating and providing a cost-effective solution. Gee Gee Kay and its team are now able to operate and get real-time updates of all operations from a smart device thereby increasing their production quality and quality.
