Controls: Pharma ETP

The overly complex PLC based controls of the original plant were replaced by a dedicated pH controller, and these three boxes.

These are a distribution board, an ultrasonic controller, and an inverter.

These replace the plc without a human interface which the original installers used.

Since at least monthly intervention is required to calibrate the pH probe, this might be viewed as a design weakness, or an attempt to prevent the purchaser from using another plant maintenace company.
