Hazard Symblos





Specifying equipment for large or small projects can be overwhelming for some. Industrial processes run in dangerous environments where flammable liquids and explosive gases are present. Any of these substances can easily be ignited if surrounding equipment is not designed to prevent equipment from becoming an ignition source.

GTH has many different control strategies and solutions for any control need. One option that we utilize frequently is the PID controllers from Watlow and Honeywell. PID control can be confusing but it is a really important control type in the industrial world. The PID controller algorithm involves three separate constant parameters, and is accordingly sometimes called three-term control: the proportional, the integral and derivative values, denoted P, I, and D.

BellimoValves and damper actuators are critical in most applications though they can go unnoticed. Their reliability and functionality are pivotal in HVAC Systems. Most would think it would be easier to replace the valve and actuator when needed, this isn't always the most sensible answer. Belimo Retrofit Solutions makes retrofitting quick and easy without the need for interruption in service.
