In the past, the automation and control has seen an enormous development. The traditional technologies like PLC, SCADA and DCS has greatly influenced the industrial automation process. It can be effectively used in applications ranging from simple control like replacing small number of relays to complex automation problems. This work applies in screening area of the paper industry to separate high density particles while flowing through the tube to the dump valve. This system is called as waste disposal system. In the screening process, destoner separates the high density particles from the weightless useful pulp and the outlet is lead into the dump valve. The dumping and discharging operations of high density particles in the dump valve is controlled by the Programmable Logic Controller which is used for automation and control of the valve movement sequentially and continuously until the pulp is available [1]. Thus by automation of the waste disposal system, time of the manual operator is saved. This proposed system will increase the disposal rate. There is an advantage of low running cost reduced time cycle and increased precision.

Keywords: Automation, Control valves, Dump valve, PLC.
