Each OSCAR system is engineered to order to meet project specific needs and all panels are tested prior to shipment. At Xylem, our biological process experts works with consulting engineers, end users, contractors and system integrators to ensure proper design of the entire wastewater treatment plant.
A process control panel comes standard with any OSCAR system. The control panel includes a control cabinet, PLC, HMI, Webport, HOA switches, and pilot lights.
Power equipment such as motor starters, variable frequency drives and motor control centers may be provided based on equipment requirements. Power components can be provided as panel mount, wall mount, and/or housed in a motor control center.
Process and liquid instrumentation is included as required to support monitoring and/or controller features.
Aeration control comes standard with any OSCAR system. Additionally, with all ICEAS solutions, basic ICEAS control is included. The following process controllers can also be provided based on specific plant needs:
Process and instrumentation safety nets are included as needed based on the selected process controllers. Safety nets detect sensor or process issues, and if critical, automatically switch to safe mode of operation.
Process and liquid monitoring included as requested on the HMI.
Secure remote access can be provided upon request for both in-plant and out-of-plant, allowing for both visibility and control.
Xylem provides support through the life of the project including proposal phase, submittal phase, and execution phase. Services include:
