Emerson Process Management and The Lubrizol Corporation have completed on-schedule, on-budget factory acceptance of Emerson's integrated automation solution for Lubrizol's greenfield additives manufacturing facility in Zhuhai, China. Emerson is the Main Automation Contractor (MAC) for the plant, which will offer select additive component manufacturing as well as additive package blending.

Emerson's MAC role includes collaborating with the Lubrizol team to engineer, project-manage, install and commission a complete automation solution for the new additives plant. The Emerson solution is based on a front-end engineering and design (FEED) study done previously at Lubrizol's facility in Deer Park, Texas.

Emerson's DeltaV system will manage more than 2900 inputs and outputs, including Rosemount measurement and analytical instruments, Micro Motion Coriolis meters, Fisher control valves and regulators, and on-off valves with FieldQ™ actuators—a total of almost 1900 Emerson measurement and control devices.

The system and devices are digitally integrated using IEC 62591 (WirelessHART), FOUNDATION fieldbus and Profibus communications. Emerson's DeltaV Electronic Marshalling with CHARMs technology helps simplify engineering and installation by eliminating many of the wires and connections required by traditional marshalling.
