Many control systems fitted to older turbomachinery are unreliable, more difficult to support and require specialist knowledge to setup, calibrate and maintain – skills long since lost from the workforce.
We engineer a complete replacement control solution using proven industry standard components with the benefit of technical support during installation and beyond.
As installed machinery reaches a certain maturity, many of the serviceable components are replaced, changed or overhauled either at their end of their service life or on condition.
This extends the operation life of the machine, but often the control system components remain as originally installed 20+ years ago. The control systems of the installation era are now obsolete, difficult to maintain, repair or understand – technology has moved on dramatically during this period of time. Where significant life extension is demanded by customers, the most sensible solution to ensure long term service and reliability is a complete control system upgrade or retrofit. We have the experience, expertise and knowledge to build and install a complete retrofit control system solution using off the shelf industrially proven hardware to replace any existing control system.
Separate temperature monitors, governors, lamp matrix displays, surge controllers, performance monitors – all merged into one system. Integrated with vibration monitoring, fire and gas detection systems, overspeed detection systems.
Using modern instrumentation to improve fault tolerance and greater diagnostic functions to more readily resolve faults and reduce down time.
