The following are typical electrical controls & instrumentation projects completed by Nova Dynamics Limited in recent years. A brief description of the project the approximate cost magnitude and the owner’s name are also presented. Client references and contact information is provided at the end of this document.  

 

ELECTRICAL CONTROLS & INSTRUMENTATION

  1. Project: Upgrade of the operating controls and feed water instrumentation for an industrial power boiler (PB4) recently converted from a process recovery boiler. This project involves the replacement of the entire original pneumatic and analog, electronic instrumentation with new digital field transmitters. Additional controls have been added to the feed water supply system. A new Foxboro CRT operator interface and I/A distributed control system replace the original operator controls. The total number of instrument loops to be upgrades is approximately 100. The design for this project has been completed and is awaiting implementation.
