Control system for fresh pasta thermal treatment line

It's a control system for a thermal treatment plant producing over 100 kinds of fresh stuffed pasta (for example the "tortellini" pasta).

For each kind of pasta there is a different combination of parameters (receipts).

The system controls completely the thermal treatment plant, that 's divided in the following units (from input to output):

  • Elevator belt, that carries the product from the assembly line to the pastorizer, located in the higher side of the machine
  • Vibrant feeder, that distributes evenly the no-boxed product on the process belts
  • Pastorizer, a room where the suitable temperature to the thermic treatment is reached through a steam circuit. Here the product received more steam in order to avoid dryness
  • Vibrant dripping, the necessary step to dry the no-boxed product after the thermal treatment
  • Drying-room, a room with controlled temperature and humidity, where the product is dried
  • Cooling-chamber, a room with controlled temperature, where the product is cooled

Moreover, the control system co-ordinates the whole production line and consequently it communicates with following systems:

  • Steam production system for the thermal treatment
  • Refrigerating system
  • Machines used before the thermal treatment
  • Machines used after the thermal treatment

This system allows a completely automatic control of the line, mainly for the following operations:

  • System starting
  • System stopping
  • Maintenance of the functioning conditions
  • Management of alarms that don't require system stopping
  • Management of alarms that require system stopping
  • Emergency system stopping
  • Washing and drying (system maintenance)
