Learn of a Life Science cost saving solution to simplify control of isolation valves in Clean Space
In recent years Grifols has evolved the way in which they pilot process isolation valves; from discretely wired pilot valves on the process valve to valve manifolds on bus networks. On a recent plant expansion project, they have decided to control isolation valves via Emerson's ASCO 580 CHARMs manifolds connected to their Electronic Marshaling (CHARMs) I/O.
While the previous setups worked fine, the 580 CHARMs solution offered some unique features and benefits that moves the piloting of the process valves from a discretely wired setup, or a simplex bus network, into a redundant, native, I/O platform using DeltaV CHARMs. It also allows for diagnostic feedback directly into the DCS and simplifies maintenance while working in and around a clean space.
