AutoTreat III is a proprietary automated control system that uses the combination of an industrial computer and Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) to interface with and control all aspects of treating and mixing plant operations. This cutting-edge control system can be compared to systems such as an automotive assembly line, just on a smaller scale. It is designed and built to accommodate future expansion and is the ultimate tool in wood treating and mixing process control. These tools help treaters streamline their operations by using their manpower more efficiently which leads to a higher, more efficient productivity output for the plant. This can be accomplished by using a wide variety of easy to use tools in the system to monitor and analyze plant operations, including easy to follow graphics, trending and reporting tools. The flexibility of the system allows operations to modify and adapt plant control by adding or changing recipes and set-points to maximize plant functionality.
