North American Process Controls
Fives is a leader in the supply of process controls built around combustion systems.
With more than 60 years’ experience building combustion control and burner management systems Fives is able to provide the highest quality in process control. Because safety is a main priority, the control strategy within each system is carefully designed to prevent hazardous situations. All Fives’ Controls Engineers have a thorough working knowledge of NFPA 79, 85, 86, and 87, IEC 60204-1, EN 746-2, UL 508A, ATEX, and CSA B149.3-10 so we can design and build compliant combustion control systems for use around the world.
Fives has utilized programmable controllers in the control of combustion and heating processes for over 25 years. The company maintains its own Controls Engineering staff that has over 165 years combined experience.
Burner Management Systems can be flame relay-based or Safety PLC-based depending on the customer’s needs. Flame supervisory systems range from single burner to multi-burner; independent operation to simultaneous operation; and standard to custom arrangements.
Safety PLC burner management systems offer superior diagnostic capabilities with real-time BMS status plus they offer the greatest flexibility to perform complex BMS functions such as pilot relight, multiple fuel changeovers, complex purge procedures, valve proving systems and multi-burner sequencing.
Material handling, recipe based control, and model based control are often incorporated into our designs. Fives has designed and built complete process solutions on every major PLC platform.
Fives is experienced in process information management: complete SCADAs or subsets that include data acquisition, batch reports, graphical user interfaces, and material tracking interfaces. All can be incorporated into your control system.
Fives is a UL listed panel manufacturer and can supply UL listed cabinets under its North American offering.
