Since 1993, Control Arts has specialized in data mining and software, primarily for refineries, chemical plants, pulp and paper plants, and power plants.The company focus is data collection, analysis and software solutions for process control and alarm management. With 6 executed patents and 1 patent pending, Control Arts is dedicated to excellence in data mining and process control for plant control, engineering and maintenance.


Alarm Data Management

Start engineering your alarm system with the Control Arts Process Alarm Toolkit. All the components needed for a complete solution - from storing the alarm data to scheduled reports to management of change - are available in one integrated package.

And the Process Alarm Toolkit helps you to ensure that all alarm settings (trip point, deadband, etc.) are set at their optimal point (more...).

Controller Performance Monitoring

Maintaining a few control loops is easy, but if your plant has hundreds or thousands of control loops, continually determining which loops need attention can be a major effort. The Control Arts ControlMonitor package automates this task, delivering detailed reports on which loops aren't performing.

Just as important, you can also perform detailed diagnosis so that you can pinpoint the source of the problem and fix it (more...).

Process Model ID / PID Tuning

Most loops are still controlled with the PID algorithm, and it's still necessary to ensure that these are tuned properly. The Control Arts Model ID and PID Tuning package lets you efficiently obtain dynamic models of the process and quickly calculate the best PID parameters - all from a few simple plant tests.

A host of features allow you to go beyond PID tuning - from filter design to determining whether advanced control will be beneficial (more...).
