The Control System | Macro-Supervisory | Ultramax Technology
Control System | Macro-Supervisory | Ultramax is a unique dynamic optimisation technology which provides the vehicle for the user to obtain the best performance from their plant utilising existing equipment. The technology employs sophisticated software which has been refined over 25 years of operation to provide fast results with minimal plant personnel input.
Basic Function and Benefits of Control System | Macro-Supervisory | Ultramax
Ultramax® is an Industrial Engineering, independent, Macro-Supervisory-Control system to achieve better operating performance than most people can manage with their existing Process Control System (PCS), even those with Advanced Process Control (APC). Improvements are evaluated according to any set of performance metrics defined by the user. It is applicable when the performance metrics are measurable during or shortly after production.
If it can be measured, it can be optimized. ™
Control System | Macro-Supervisory | Ultramax is, simply, a solution with an analytic logic or intelligence - or guide -- that learns how to do better as it accumulates experience. The user defines what "better" is: the objectives and its metrics, which can be dynamic.
Now, given the objectives (and important uncontrolled conditions, if any) there is an optimal set of process adjustments decisions (technical management) which will maximize overall operating performance.
You set the objectives, and Ultramax learns to adjust the process to best fulfil those objectives.
Ultra-Dynamnics Pty Ltd specialises in process control enhancements, electronic monitoring equipment and general consultancy for power generation, mining and manufacturing and all heavy industry. The product range can be divided into a number of areas including:
1. General Industry
On-line measurement of the ultraMOIST moisture using a microwave transmission technique which is suitable for application to conveyor belt as well as in-bin. The system has been applied to a wide range of industries for application to moisture measurement of paper to rock as well as other non-conducting materials. Ultra-Dynamics Pty Ltd has also developed a number of control strategies including drier control and water addition.
MAGNASAT Magnetic Susceptibility Meter provides a measurement of the magnetic properties of materials and has been particularly useful for the copper and mineral sands industries for the measurement of magnetite and other ferrous mineral contents of process materials.
Inflo Resometric Beltscale which provides the ultimate precision and stability of mass flow measurement
2. Power Industry
Lintvalve Steam Leak Detection System for the detection of steam leaks before they become a major costly repair problem
