Continuous Process Control

Even the shortest unplanned shutdown can be an expensive event in a continuous operation. Control systems must be able to quickly respond to changes from steady state and the controls for each process step must be tightly integrated to keep your process online. Each process requires different strategies, ranging from simple PID control, to ratio, feed-forward or cascade control, to multivariable process control and other advanced process control techniques. Applied Control Engineering, Inc. (ACE) has a long history of implementing these continuous process control solutions dating back to our founding in 1991.

Continuous control applications are found throughout many diverse industries. Our broad array of customers has helped ACE establish valuable experience with numerous industrial processes. The following list is only a brief introduction to the types of continuous control applications ACE has successfully implemented.

  • Boiler and combustion controls
  • Compressor control
  • Distillation
  • Filtration
  • Gas separation
  • Reactor control
  • Scrubber control
  • Wastewater treatment

ACE has designed, configured, installed, and commissioned countless continuous process control applications on various platforms including ABB, Emerson Process Management (DeltaV), GE Intelligent Platforms, Honeywell, Invensys (Wonderware), Rockwell Automation / Allen-Bradley, Schneider Electric (Modicon), Siemens (Moore Products). As a result when working with ACE you can expect a well designed, fully tested and complete control system that meets all your requirements.
