Process Industries

Process industries include a wide range of applications from pulp/paper to silicon to metals/mining. Technology advances in manufacturing practices require clean, uninterruptible power in many procedures are automated and controlled by complex distributed control systems (DCS). Glitches in power may result in product loss, equipment damage or even safety concerns. AMETEK Solidstate Controls supplies the power conditioning equipment that keeps process businesses in business.

In the manufacturing sector, power equipment provides electrical continuity to a wide range of applications; this means that each one is unique. AMETEK's Applications Engineers have years of design experience to customize each power solution to meet specific and demanding needs.

Pulp and Paper
Pulp and paper plants are corrosive by nature. The chemicals needed to extract cellulose from wood fibers and to cleanse the solution for paper manufacturing include caustic soda, sodium sulfide, sulfurous acid and chlorine bleach. As you can imagine, these chemicals can wreck havoc on electrical components. AMETEK treats the electrical components and connection terminals with anti-corrosive coatings to ensure our equipment can withstand these harsh chemical environments.

Metals and Mining
There may be no harsher environment for electronic equipment to operate in than the metal, mining and smelting industries. These applications are prone to high temperatures, excessive humidity, corrosive dust, particulates and even high altitudes as mines can be in mountainous areas. AMETEK has decades of experience in proper electrical design, rugged componentry selection and anti-corrosive treatment to PCBs, conductors and transformers that allow our power equipment to survive in these conditions all while operating for 20 years or more.
