Sibelco Benelux site Heerlen:
Sibelco Heerlen is a silver sand quarry.
The silver sand is not only used in the glass industry but also as a filler in rubbers, plastics, sealants and medicines.
Inofil handles the ongoing automation projects and resolves faults that are easier to find via the PLC software.
The factory consists of eight sub processes that are each controlled by a Siemens PLC.
The SCADA system is a iFIX system.
