ROI 12 months on Van Dorn 2000t

Pennsylvania, USA   This Van Dorn 2000t injection molding machine with three 100HP motors driving nine fixed pumps and one variable volume pump was recently fitted with a SyncroSpeed system. Measured savings ranged 29.6kW — 31.7kW yielding a financial return of just under 12 months, based on 6000 annual operating hours, $0.095 energy costs, and including the utility incentives to support the investment.

Aerospace process machine wiring is underway

The CCS Installation team are currently wiring up three large machines to be used for chemical etching and inspection. These machines will be used in the manufacture of Aircraft parts in a new, advanced manufacturing facility in northern England. The main control system will be Siemens S7 300 based with Simotion motion control and ASI networks for the I/O systems. These plant control systems will be fully integrated with the plants MES system Read More

Oil Terminal DCS Control System

In 2007, we completed the construction and delivery of a suite of local control panels providing additional DCS control and instrumentation for 5 cargo pumps for Zueitina Oil company, Libya. The cargo pumps and associated control and instrumentation operate in a Zone 1 area, therefore all equipment supplied was ATEX ExII1G rated. All electrical signals from field devices were connected to the control panel for local control and monitoring via Intrinsically Read More

Radiation Monitoring System

Since early in 2003 we have been working with a national power generating company to develop replacement control systems for outdated and hard to maintain plant and equipment. Much of the original equipment was developed in the late 1960’s, spares are becoming harder to source and the system was becoming more difficult to maintain.The control for a gas monitoring system analyses a sample of the reactor coolant gas for raised Read More
