ABB Ability Liquid Routing Library

Monday, 19 October, 2020 | Supplied by: ABB Australia Pty Ltd



ABB has launched ABB Ability Liquid Routing Library, which is a control engineering inventory for food and beverage manufacturers and those in other liquid related industries, including tank farms, pharmaceuticals and chemical resin plants.

The digital application draws on ABB Ability System 800xA and will support routing and cleaning in place (CIP) functionalities needed for liquid-led production. It can be used wherever products are transported, stored or processed in tanks and lines and is particularly relevant to dairy, brewing, sugar, mills and edible oil application programming.

Ready-made objects including libraries, typicals and templates for product routing, with recipe-based CIP, track and trace, preventive plant maintenance and Excel-based bulk data tools are made available for users through the library.

Functionalities include alarm handling, alarm propagation between different units, queue handling for online production changes, control and supervision of process objects, interlocks and transfer of product and equipment settings like product codes, unit names and unit states.

It is estimated that the library will reduce project-specific library development time by 80% and the project-specific software requirements by 60%, minimising the cost of developing an automation solution while maximising plant operability.
