Instrumentation & Control

Manufacturers of instrumentation and process control systems

Process control includes the automated control of continuous or batch processes with computers. The hardware components of the process control systems, such as measurement and control components, are called instrumentation. There is a broad range of measurement and control devices needed for any dry material handling process. Process instruments measure, analyze, regulate and control industrial processes and therefore contribute to increasing the efficiency of process plants and improving the product quality. High-quality processes are essential in the process industry. Only then you accomplish the required results. Instruments and control systems include: (Solids) flow, level, moisture, detectors, samplers, analyzers, dust monitors, process recorders and process controls.
