DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF COMMAND SCHEMESTO AUTOMATE WATER SUPPLY INSTALLATIONS IN THE FOOD INDUSTRY
Water is an indispensable element of life,being an important factor in almost all industrial manufacturing processes.
In the food industry water has multiple uses, during the technological process as:raw and auxiliary material; water for washing; sorting water;water cooling and transport of various materials etc.
The water needs of various sub-sectors of the food industry is determined by production processes, as well as according to the diversity of manufacturing technologies (for example:bakery products - approx. 0.9 m3/t; slaughterhouses - approx. 3.5 m3 per animal slaughtered; potato alcohol - approx. 5 m3/t; etc.).
Storing water in tanks is projected to water supply installations of the units with high water consumption, as well as with fluctuations of consumer flows.
Storage tanks can be open tankswhich communicates with the atmosphere and pressure tanks.In their turn,open tanks can be buried, semi-underground or aerial.In order to dimension the water supply installations it will determine the necessary water.
The role of storage tanks is:achieving offsetting changes of the water flow;ensuring service pressure water to consumersand the stock water in case of damage to the capture and treatment installations; ensuring the water reserve for fire fighting etc.
