Plants based on the Lego principle: Modular automation with valve terminals

Jan. 15, 2020
Manufacturers in the process industries are facing new market demands, including shorter product development times and more customized products. Adjusting requires a shift in the design and engineering requirements of process plants. The solution is the “Lego principle,” which relies on modular, rather than centralized, automation—i.e. dividing a plant into functional units. Under this model, users can combine, add and switch production modules to produce specific process plants—thus adapting to market and production requirements. This paper explores the benefits of modularization in water filtration plants and discusses how you can apply this model to processes in other industries.
