Food & Beverage


Over the years ICI...

has established a strong reputation for the work that we have undertaken in the Food and Beverage industries.
From front end concept study and design to integrated production plant control and management information systems,
ICI has a proven track record of quality solutions and on time delivery.

ICI recognizes the key drivers and marketing pressures of this sector, with an increasing dependence on process reliability and consistent quality.

Increasing regulations on product traceability and the need for flexibility to respond to seasonal issues mean that the requirements of the Food & Beverage industry are very demanding.

From slow conveyor control projects to high speed packaging; from the production process to automated cleaning in place systems, ICI have a wealth of know how to assist with providing the right solution for our customers.

The long term commitment to our clients in this sector ensures that ICI is the first choice vendor for many leading companies to provide their process automation needs.

The batch approach to manufacturing has brought real business benefits to our clients. ICI has delivered several batch control systems in the Food and Beverage and Chemical industries.
ICI has a long history of batch processing applications experience for single, multi-product and multi-stream process ingredients management. We have designed and installed several fully S88.01 compliant batch control systems for cGMP regulated Pharmaceutical and Food quality intermediate process manufacturing plants using PLC/SCADA/HMI based applications, including full electronic recipe, reporting and management systems.

The S88 standard enables clear and concise transfer of information between different disciplines, specifically the Process Engineer and the Automation Engineer. The standard breaks down ‘process areas’ into ‘process cells’, ‘process units’, ‘equipment modules’ and finally ‘phases’. Using these smaller ‘blocks’ the URS(User Requirement Specification), FDS (Functional Design Specification) and ultimately the final control software, are constructed in a logical ‘easy to follow’ way.

The implementation of ISA S88.01 batch control has been proven to increase productivity and throughput on plant, whilst also improving product consistency and manufacturing cycle times.
ICI can advise on the best implementation of a batch control system to ensure that our clients receive the maximum return on their production assets.
