|Modified & colour coded pneumatics on coating plant
|Access around the mixer at this site is narrow and so changes were made to improve the situation. It was decided to relocate the pneumatic control box and at the same time renew the valves and pipe work. This reduced the need for employees to work within the mixer room in a breakdown situation.
The site fitter built a new control box with spare capacity. In the event of a valve failure a spare valve could be fitted so that production could continue.
The new box was fitted to allow free access around the mixer, and in addition, all pipe work is now colour
coded to allow easy identification of specific valves and rams.
These changes have improved plant efficiency, improved access and egress within the mixer room and reduced overhead hazards.
