Our Services

Plant Automation

Reliable Controls Corporation provides automation services for industrial plants utilizing state-of-the-art controls systems applications. We implement a documented Quality Management system built for industrial automation and technology platforms. We bring comprehensive process know-how and extensive experience in commissioning, operations, and maintenance, which gives us a solid framework and understanding of real operational needs. We work side-by-side with our clients to ensure that we design, engineer, program, and deliver a system that is fit for purpose, robust, and reliable. Our engineers are experts in Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC), Human-Machine Interface (HMI), and Distributed Control Systems (DCS), and work with a variety of platforms including: Rockwell, Allen Bradley, Siemens, Modicon, DeltaV, ABB, Intellution, Wonderware, to name a few.

Our company is effective and efficient, whether we’re working on a small system (0-500 I/O) or a large facility (>5000 I/O). We have a rigorous internal quality control system throughout the life cycle of the system implementation.

Reliable Controls’ involvement in a project can include specifying the equipment and infrastructure, designing the operator interface screens and logic diagrams, implementing the configuration and programming, performing a physical and functional Factory & Site Acceptance Testing, and on-site support through Pre-operational testing, commissioning, start-up and ramp-up.

Plant Commissioning

Reliable Controls Corporation provides plant commissioning services using a proprietary systemized and documented verification and validation program. We have found this approach to be extremely effective in bringing a plant on-line more quickly with fewer operational issues.

Our commissioning approach ensures that all sequential activities are done in a consistent and methodical manner to ensure that an entire processing plant, systems and associated equipment are constructed, started up and placed into service on-time and in accordance with project design specifications, operational performance goals and sustainable development objectives.

Our multi-disciplined team has worked on some of the world’s biggest projects. Roles include Commissioning Planning, Pre-Operational Testing, Dry and Wet Commissioning, Start-Up and Ramp-Up.

We can help you in providing a solid and experienced 'hands-on' management team along with expert engineers, technicians and craftsmen to meet your project needs.

Plant Optimization

Reliable Controls provides plant optimization services that focus on process evaluation and improvements from “cradle to grave” (Life-Cycle Assessment). Our optimization team members are experts in process, commissioning, operations, and maintenance. We develop solutions to improve your plant’s throughput, recovery, mass & energy balance, energy efficiency, and help meet sustainable development goals.

We utilize tools such as KSimMet and HSC Chemistry to help model original design vs. existing process conditions, and then evaluate, assess, and provide solutions.

Reliable Controls performs detailed on-site assessments of all process-critical components, evaluate performance & effectiveness, and provide you with a "snap shot" of current status. Finally, we provide a road map for plant improvement.
