Terex Washing Systems (TWS) announces the release of its new Plant Automation & Controls Service (PACS) . This service will allow customers to improve plant efficiency by utilising state of the art, fully integrated control systems for the full range of Terex® Washing and Water Management equipment.
Barry McMenamin, manager of the Electrical Systems team at Terex Materials Processing states: " Over the past eight years, Terex Materials Processing has established a strong team of electrical, electronic and software engineers employing some of the most experienced and skilled individuals in the market place. This has allowed Terex to develop some of the most advanced and user friendly control systems in the industry for our full range of mobile and stationary crushing and screening plants. This helps our customers achieve the most cost effective and efficient operating and control systems, whatever their plant requirements from basic push-button single plant control to complete large scale multi-plant automation, including radio and telemetry control and data acquisition."
Adding to this, Sean Loughran, Product Line Director for the TWS business, said: "With Sand, Ore, Coal and Recycled Material Washing all requiring an increasingly sophisticated level of operator controls, bringing a range of equipment into the control sphere – such as Cyclones, Dewatering screens and Filter Presses along with the sampling and analysis of chemical additive systems – Terex Washing Systems is perfectly placed to offer an unparalleled service of plant automation.
"This service begins with a simple questionnaire, followed by site meetings, requirements gathering and eventually the creation of Functional Design Specifications. Once agreed by all parties, the full control system designs are created including all schematics, Bills of Material and full software files as required for all automation functions. TWS also integrates existing plant controls to their systems, including crushing, screening and even third party wash plants.
"We expect this initiative to be a major benefit to our customers and distributors and allows TWS to offer the complete wash plant solution from concept to commission."
