Process Automation is the use of automated technologies to the performance of process operations more efficiently and safely. Grantek’s experience in Process Automation encompasses the Pharmaceutical/Life Sciences, Food and Beverage and Consumer Packaged Goods industries.
By leveraging over three decades of Grantek’s experience and industry knowledge, we can help design an innovative solution to meet unique Process Automation needs. If a facility has existing processes in place, but a production line requires improvement through automation and integration, along with other enterprise systems, Grantek can assist.
Grantek works closely with clients to understand both the existing process systems, and the project objectives. This allows us to create a detailed, functional description document which outlines the Process Automation solution proposed by Grantek. This document will typically include:
- A Control System Architecture
- Detailed Operational Sequences
- Examples of the user interface to be used by operators
Our Grantek Project Managers will assist in defining the project scope, developing the automation solution, deploying the strategy and determining a solution. Our Project Managers will use the Grantek Project Management Methodology (PMM), which has been developed and reshaped over 30 years of experience for both regulated and non-regulated industries, to ensure that your project is completed on schedule.
Grantek has experience designing Automation Solutions for:
- Batching Systems
- Continuous Processes
- Dry Material Processing, and
- Clean in Place (CIP) systems
We also have extensive experience working within the Food and Beverage, Brewing, Pharmaceutical, Consumer Packaged Goods, Wastewater, and Dairy Processing industries. We can implement Historian Systems to store process data for regulatory compliance and future analysis. We also design the reporting systems and tools that allow our clients to understand and act on the process data collected.
