Optimized logistics concept for tank systems

We implemented an efficient logistics concept at Brenntag Schweizerhall AG's Basel site

Chemicals distributor Brenntag Schweizerhall AG provided clear proof of their competence in the area of customer proximity through partnership: The company set up in Infrapark Baselland so that they could supply chemical raw materials directly to the businesses there.

"Efficient automation technology is a must in order to deliver chemical raw materials just in time"

The customer's requirements

Construction of such plants is no ordinary challenge as working with sulfuric acid, hydrochloric acid and caustic soda requires more stringent safety precautions. Therefore a risk analysis was first commissioned which would serve as the basis for the project. The project also included full automation of all processes. Brenntag Schweizerhall AG chose Endress+Hauser (Schweiz) AG as the supplier for the measurement instrumentation and automation technology.

The Endress+Hauser solution

All aspects of the automation concept had to be implemented. The task was to manage the processes reliably based on the risk analysis carried out and to design the plant in such a way that operation is easy. The plant is operated via 8 local stations as well as from Brenntag Schweizerhall AG's headquarters in Basel.
