Web-Based Process Control Becomes Reality

The process industry operates in a complex environment, and the requirements for its control technology are
correspondingly demanding; an intelligent response to this challenge is a web-based process control system with
object-oriented data management.

It is our pleasure to announce that the following engineers have acquired their Siemens PCS7 certification:

  • Jordan Johnston
  • Jason George
  • Vince Salinas
  • Patrick Kehoe

We are proud of their hard work to achieve this certification. We also deeply appreciate their trainers for preparing the team so well. has written an article about us!

When it comes to fuel valve control, gas turbines require quick response times and accurate adjustments to ensure reliability and safety.  Recently, Pigler Automation worked with an engineering company that upgrades and maintains gas turbines worldwide. The company was retained by a well-known paper producer to upgrade a General Electric Frame 6B gas turbine used to produce electricity and steam for facility and industrial processes at one of its mills in Western Europe.  The client worked with Pigler Automation to use Siemens’ PCS 7 control system to completely control their gas turbine. The client chose Pigler Automation for the project because of their reputation and expertise as a Siemens Solution Partner with five certified PCS 7 engineers on staff with more than 50 years of combined PCS 7 experience.  Pigler Automation also has decades of power generation experience which they applied to this project and they support customers in the chemical and mining industries so their engineers are well versed in numerous process control technologies.
