Nov.
29, 2011 – Metso DNA recently introduced new control applications to make
energy, pulp and paper – and now mining and construction industries – more
user-friendly, productive and profitable.

Metso
is the first to introduce embedded machine condition and runnability monitoring
within process controls. Also on offer are new control applications, such as
winder controls, power plant turbine controls and machine condition monitoring.

Scalable
Metso DNA automation systems adapt to diverse mining and construction industry
needs, from single-machine controls to plant-wide automation and information
management systems.

One
product, a new crushing plant control room solution, connects crushers and
screens, ensuring the effective management of the entire plant from a pleasant
and safe control room. Automatic controls stabilize the process and allow the
operators to monitor the plant as a whole.

Machine
condition monitoring has been developed for the condition monitoring of
rotating machines such as flue gas fans, feed water pumps and turbines.

With
this system, says Jaakko Oksanen, product manager Metso, the user receives
process data in real time and retrospectively from the same user interface.
“The user can easily access all the data collected during his/ her absence, for
example, over the weekend.”

Metso
DNA is a single automation system for all functions – process, machine, drive
and quality controls. It also covers information management, and mechanical and
field device condition monitoring. Metso DNA is scalable from a single
stand-alone controller to mill and plant-wide systems in global organizations.
Post-1988 systems are easily upgraded.
