A drive and controls upgrade from Optima Control Solutions (OCS) has enabled Britton, a film and packaging supplier, to make energy savings.

European PE film manufacturer Britton operates over multiple sites, producing 90,000 tonnes of plain, printed and converted polyethylene film for the packaging industry each year.

To improve reliability and reduce power consumption, OCS upgraded the ER-WE-PA line at Britton’s Winsford site by replacing nine DC drives with the latest Parker SSD VSD control equipment.

OCS also provided an Allen-Bradley SCADA package, designed to allow the integration of new control equipment with minimum disruption to Britton’s manufacturing process.
