OAK BROOK, Ill.May 10, 2021

Industrial Steam has completed the install of a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC). In the processing plant of a global brand confectionery company located in Chicago, IL.  The programmable logic controller is a single microprocessor-based device used to automate equipment operation, says Dominic Susin, President of Industrial Steam and a member of the American Boiler Manufacturers Association. The PLC was designed over 40 years ago to replace hardware-level logic used in manufacturing machinery, infrastructure and transportation control.

Industrial Steam custom designs, manufactures and programs PLCs for all industries including food processing, hospitals, pharmaceutical, medical devices, corrugating plants, steel production, and others that require digital on/off processing in automating applications.

Industrial Steam’s PLC controls can be added to any complete deaerator system to have centralized control of all analog (level pressure) and discrete (alarm points) control points in your system. Industrial Steam is a leader in the industry when it comes to controls for deaerators, surge tanks and pump staging. The PLC can be used to stage pumps on and off, modulating variable frequency drives, control level and pressure, all from a easy to use touchscreen interface.
