Marine and industrial machinery can last for decades if properly and regularly maintained. The only thing that deteriorates with time is the control. It is a good practice to upgrade your control system every 10 to 15 years. New control solutions offer better and more reliable control, long distance supervising and easier use.
Woodward offers a wide range of new technology control systems. Replacing the hydromechanical governor with the new generation one has many advantages, including improved reliability, faster response, easier adjustment and reduced maintenance costs.
In an industrial setting, the same philosophy can also be applied. Today, the entire industrial process can be supervised from a control room. Steam turbine retrofitting with Woodward electronic devices ensures more flexible control and easier use. These devices connected to DCS allow you to monitor the complete machinery at work from one place.
