Mill says yes to a new DCS to preserve its competitive edge

In this case history, Rand-Whitney Containerboard trades its old distributed control system for improved reliability.

Rand-Whitney Containerboard produces 250,000 tons a year of containerboard at its mill in Montville, Connecticut in the United States.

When the mill’s distributed control system (DCS) became obsolete and system support grew increasingly difficult to obtain, Rand-Whitney knew it would have to replace the outdated system. The company formed a team to compare control systems from different suppliers and assess how those systems would work in the mill environment.

The team was looking for an automation solution that would have the capabilities needed to deliver reliable performance day after day. And they wanted a trustworthy vendor they could build a good relationship with - one that would provide outstanding service.
