The pellet decomposers at the Nickel Refinery required an update to their existing control systems.

This project involved the removal of the old control system to include a new pellet decomposer programmable logic controller (PLC) and 18 new control panels with remote I/O and HMI screens to amalgamate the two existing control panels per decomposer into one control panel per decomposer. BESTECH also updated 72 starters with intelligent overloads and upgraded the controls to meet new automation needs. Finally, BESTECH designed the network for all panels and starters and created the functional description.
