The PCC-IV loop controller is the next generation of Preferred’s loop controllers AND upgraded technology for the entire industry. The PCC-IV is more flexible, has extensive memory, and not only replaces the Preferred PCC-III, but also can replace the Siemens Moore 352 and 353, obsolete and no longer supported starting October 2017.
Preferred Utilities’s controls are just that- preferred. Consider a case study of a longtime PCC controls customer:
Preferred Utilities has been supporting this facility in New York since 1988 with our PCC II and III loop controllers. This site installed one PCC-IV and is now considering this next generation of upgrade, the PCC-IV, in their plant with four (4) 50kpph boilers, each with steam, gas, and oil flow meters.
In 1988, the facility installed 16 PCC-IIs and 5 control panels, plus field instruments for a burner/controls upgrade. Almost 10 years later in 1997, they updated the system with the purchase and installation of 17 PCC-IIIs. In 2002, they decided to upgrade again and add O2 trim. Satisfied with the Preferred product, they installed 21 of the PCC-III units.
Now, in 2017, the plant installed a PCC-IV in parallel with one of the PCC-III controls to observe the performance and is considering upgrading the rest of the PCC-II and PCC-III controls. With the auto-converting functionality of the PCC-IV, the existing PCC-III programs can be re-used without modification and re-programming.
Preferred Utilities is pleased to offer generations of quality products that age gracefully and come with a pledge of full service support and solutions for upgrades in the future.
