AUMA actuator and master station as adopted by the Indian Oil Corporation

The Indian arm of the AUMA actuator group reports growth of the company’s modular actuation solutions in the oil sector. The latest contract for AUMA’s valve control technology has been placed by the Indian Oil Corporation Limited for a Naphtha Cracker and Polymer complex.

The Naphtha Cracker project is reported as the cornerstone for Indian Oil's entry into petrochemicals and represents a new market for business growth for the corporation.

Located in the Northern Indian state of Haryana, the installation is an excellent illustration of AUMA working in partnership with the customer to supply a comprehensive solution incorporating hard wiring and bus technology backed by master station support.

The installation, which confirms the company’s expertise in supplying the petrochemical industry, required 75 actuators at the Cracker complex - which has a capacity of 800,000 MT/year of ethylene production. All actuators have been supplied with control modules suitable for MODBUS RTU protocol. Additionally, SIMA master stations and hot standby master station with loop technology have been provided. ESD functionality, achieved through hardwired operation, is provided, tailored to meet the customer’s requirements.

The master stations in redundant configuration communicate through MODBUS RTU protocol with Yokogawa DCS CS 3000. Additional features provided are PCs to monitor the actuators’ functions via the SIMA master stations.
