Float Solutions

The combination of Model Based Control and traditional PID Control will help you improve the performance of your float plant. Now you can tie together your entire process from the batch plant through the lehr. The experience gained from more than 50 float installations is combined to ensure your process exceeds expectations.


Utilize Model Based Control

ACSI control systems utilize Model Based Control to help you achieve your desired melter temperature, pressure, glass level, and other critical parameters, as well as lehr temperature. Model based control functions can be added to your existing control system or integrated into a new ACSI system.
