significantly improve the automation level and enhance our plant
Jubliant’s large-capacity plants in the SEZ are equipped with Emerson’s
technologies and manufacture 3-cyanopyridine and vitamin B3.
Emerson provided its PlantWeb™ digital plant architecture to automate
the three manufacturing facilities, including DeltaV™ digital automation
systems, AMS Suite predictive maintenance software, and Rosemount®
field instrumentation among its other offerings.
The flexibility and ease of use of the DeltaV system meets the complex
production needs of Jubilant, making it ideal for the company’s critical
pharmaceutical processes. The three DeltaV systems communicate with
numerous field devices using FOUNDATION Fieldbus technology.
Emerson’s AMS Suite software was used during installation of measurement
and control devices to help reduce costs and improve device startup
efficiency. Jubilant Life Sciences will use the software’s predictive
maintenance capabilities on an ongoing basis to further increase the
availability and performance of the plant.
According to Mr. Amit Paithankar, Managing Director, Emerson Process
Management, India, “Emerson’s DeltaV system has advanced batch
capabilities that help enable agile manufacturing to meet real-time
demands. We have proven strengths in the life-sciences sector and we
have successfully executed more than 12 automation projects for
Jubilant’s process units in Gajraula, Uttar Pradesh, Baroda, Gujarat and
The DeltaV digital automation system helps harness today’s predictive
technologies in an easy way to connect people, processes, and
