Water and Waste Treatment
Most groundwater & wastewater treatment facilities have a control system that keeps them running. Oftentimes, this control system slowly gets forgotten or overridden as the years go by and other equipment in the plant gets replaced. The problem with this approach is when something breaks or stops working, no one knows why. The automation system is supposed to alert the operator but if it has not been maintained properly, it is of little use.
Vortechs Automation provides services, upgrades and retrofits of groundwater & wastewater treatment systems with modern SCADA and other PLC-based control systems.
Vortechs has experience in reverse engineering older systems when site documentation is lacking. Our goal is to integrate the system to work seamlessly with existing plant equipment. The benefits are increased throughput of the plant, real-time alarming of problems, historical data logging of key plant information, and less down time.
A properly designed and fully operational automation system can decrease a plant's operating cost. Making sure pumps run only when needed and don’t cycle too often helps them last longer. Even and consistent chemical and reagent injection make sure you are not overdosing and wasting product. Maintaining proper discharge pressure and flow saves on electrical consumption.
Vortechs provides SCADA services and other controls using:
- Analytical Instrumentation
- Extraction and Recharge Well Controls
- Remote Pump Stations and Wireless Control
- pH Neutralization
- Air Stripping Systems
- Carbon Filtration
- Transfer Tank Level Controls
- Real-Time Flow Monitoring and Control
