Customer Success Story

Botanical Extraction Systems

Botanical extraction. 

A manufacturer of botanical extraction systems was using 3-way directional control valves to regulate the compressed air that operated its equipment. The company wanted to economically apply fieldbus technology in a new design, to take advantage of its faster diagnostic and commissioning capabilities. In addition, the manufacturer was unhappy with its existing valve supplier’s technical and distribution support.

ASCO’s fieldbus specialists recommended a fluid automation solution consisting of Numatics 501 Series directional control valves and the Numatics 580 Ethernet/IP node. ASCO’s engineers then helped the customer with manifold installation and set-up. The compact solution enabled the company to control its process with fieldbus technology. It eliminated the need to hard wire the valves to the PLC while preserving the customer’s ability to utilize the technology on its current equipment. The solution’s reduced installation and commissioning time saved the customer more than $25,000 per year. ASCO’s web-based software allowed for easy trouble shooting
achieving a significant reduction in onsite service calls. In addition, the local ASCO distributor was
located close to the plant, ensuring rapid access to product and technical support
