Controls and Instrumentation
Experience with SystemsMech-Chem’s instrumentation and control systems are designed by control and programming specialists. The systems feature easy to understand and operate interfaces with accurate graphical representation. Each control and instrumentation system is custom designed and programmed according to the engineering and design drawings supplied by Mech-Chem. These control systems are designed to reduce any Resistance to Change (“RTC”) factors by creating Graphical User Interfaces (“GUIs”) that are easy to use and familiar in their look and feel to operating personnel.
Codes and RegulationsAll PLC/PC systems are built to NFPA, NEMA, UL, and NEC codes, as required, and are fabricated from materials that can withstand aggressive chemical environments in which they are installed. Mech-Chem can provide control panels for the simple switching and control of operations. These control panels feature easy-to-read controls and are built to handle corrosive environments and meet applicable NEC codes
