Water treatment describes those processes used to make water more acceptable for a desired end-use. These can include use as drinking water, industrial processes, medical and many other uses.
Clarifiers, filters, disinfection, and pumping are the main stages of the water treatment or purification and controlling each stage and linking each to the others is a high priority in both quality and production of drinking water specially therefore ATEC contributes in many projects of automation and overhauling in these stages.
Irrigation is an artificial application of water to the soil. It is usually used to assist the growing of crops in dry areas and during periods of inadequate rainfall.
Dams and gates in there different types and designs are the main tools of irrigation water distribution and controlling such tools in complicated network to achieve maximum benefits and minimize leakage or water wasting is a big issue that requires a high level of control and communication.
River transportation is a cheap sort of transportation that is used in countries that have rivers at which riverboats designed for inland navigation, these vessels are usually less sturdy than ships built for the open seas.
Navigation lock is a device for raising and lowering boats between stretches of water of different levels on river and canal waterways. The distinguishing feature of a lock is a fixed chamber whose water level can be varied; whereas in a caisson lock, a boat lift, or on a canal inclined plane, it is the chamber itself (usually then called a caisson) that rises and falls, in this application three tools are mainly used main, culvert, and segment gates are used. Control and high skilled engineering is required to synchronize such a multi stage process to reduce time wasted in this process efficiently to increase the capacity of a navigation lock measured by number of boats per day.
Cement has main rule in our life as concrete and mortar is almost in all our buildings today.
Because cement industry has high importance and time consumed in production has great impact in such an investment so automation is so required to achieve quality and reduce production time and breakdown time.
Power plants are designed on a large scale for continuous operation. In many countries, such plants provide most of the electrical energy used.
Controlling fluids both fuel fluids or steam used to drive turbines are the main processes that controls the cycle of electricity production, Hazardous areas are plenty in such plants which requires automation and processes monitoring through reliable and efficient control system.
Petrochemicals are chemical products made from raw materials of petroleum or other hydrocarbon origin. Although some of the chemical compounds that originate from petroleum may also be derived from other sources (such as coal or natural gas), petroleum is a major source of many.
These many applications require more sophisticated techniques in each industry and automation is a must to produce such application through high level control systems.
