Objectives: This paper shows the development of an application for the historical record of the values with which a wastewater treatment filter operates in the oil industry, used to eliminate traces of oil and solids, and make it suitable in the injection processes or shedding. Methods/Analysis: After analyzing the data, we proceeded to identify the variables within the filter that had to be shown in the program. After that, the programming work was done in the Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) to make this data accessible. The software Microsoft Excel and RSLinx were selected for the final development, the data was communicated from the PLC to this software, and the application was developed, together with its respective simulation and its use was demonstrated in a real case. The entire process is described in this document and, at the academic level; it can be a source of consultation or guidance for the development of applications and subsequent developments. Findings: Process that is automated and therefore uses a PLC (programmable logic controller) for control and operation, together with HMI screens (Human Machine Interface), which make it possible for operators to control and supervise their operation, but do not have software that allow to record its value over time, software that would be useful for field coordinators, maintenance managers and manufacturer representatives, in order to determine efficiency parameters and detect or correct faults. Improvements: The registration can be done to view it via WEB on any device.
