Super Systems, Inc. recently completed a nitrogen-methanol controls upgrade for a continuous furnace line at Liberty Wire in Johnstown, Pennsylvania.

The scope of the project included a new control system and panel for a continuous annealing furnace line for processing coiled wire products. The SSI Matrix control system was incorporated to control the automated flow and mixing of the process gases. SSI HMI and eFlo 2.0 meters were also integrated to provide Liberty with the latest in hardware, software, and communications technology.

Mike Cassidy, the Liberty Wire controls analyst, led the installation with SSI project engineers.

“I’m very pleased with SSI and the new system. Can’t think of any aspect of the whole deal that I could find fault with or complain about … they are top-notch. I’m looking forward to working with them in the future,” he said.
