Control system for modular boiler plants
AERCO Control System (ACS) is a flexible controller designed to maximize energy savings in modular boiler plants.
The AERCO Control System (ACS) is a flexible controller designed to maximize energy savings in modular boiler plants. The ACS can stage and coordinate the operations of up to 32 boilers and is uniquely designed to maximize the operating efficiency of condensing equipment. Eight of these 32 boilers can be designated for domestic heating priority. Another eight boilers may be designated as swing boilers serving domestic hot water and building space heating as demand requires. With individual unit turndown as high as 20:1, a five-boiler plant delivers 100:1 system turndown when staged to operate sequentially. Able to regulate overall plant output with precise accuracy, a boiler plant with ±2 F header temperature variation is assured under normal load conditions. The ACS offers sequential or parallel operation flexibility, 100% control of auxiliary equipment, and user programmable modes of operation that can be changed in the field. It automatically rotates the lead unit to help equalize boiler runtime.

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
