We combine controls and steam management expertise with a portfolio of steam joints, syphons, and steam handling hardware to deliver high performance. Our control systems automatically and continuously adjust steam set points to create stable and efficient processes. They consider multiple operating conditions including product grade, weight, type, speed, and moisture content. Our control system logic includes anti-flooding, thermocompressor anti-choke, differential pressure management, start-up/shut-down assistance, and process interruption intelligence. During system events, it allows the operator to adjust heat loads while keeping the system in balance. It also monitors energy efficiency and performance of the process allowing for system optimization and preventive maintenance.
Double facer’s hot plates are divided into zones for high-performance control
Our steam systems and controls technology can be applied to industrial processes that use steam heat in a continuous process. The integration of steam system design including hardware, piping design, and controls give operators the process control and system integration needed to maximize quality and output. A properly designed and efficient steam system can increase response time to system upsets and production changes as well as increase uptime with proper start-up and shutdown procedures. Examples of applications that use steam heat in continuous processes are drum flaking, wet milling, and solutions mining. Industry examples include food, chemical, pharmaceutical, and oil and gas.
