Increase in productivity

The system upgrade completed with ACSI involved the replacement of both the process controller and the operator interface. On its own, an upgrade of the interface would have been a difficult job. Moving to a new process control platform and a new operator interface immediately made this a high risk job as well. The engineers from ACSI have done a terrific job in reverse engineering the old system to allow a very close replication in the new system. Their efforts resulted in a very smooth startup.
