GTH recently assisted a water purifying plant in Nevada with an upgrade to a PLC System that dated back to the mid-1980’s. The complete system retrofit included an upgraded Schneider Unity PLC as well as four new control panels designed to increase the efficiency and response time of the filters, pumps and VFDs.
