Symphony - Getting the Most From Your Plant


Operations Module: Symphony uses the combined power of two next-generation control systems; BIOS, the strategic system analyzing data from your plant using predictive logic, and PAL, the tactical system to control all your aeration equipment based on that plant-specific data.

Management Module: The management module delivers the analytics you need to properly manage your plant process. With this strategic insight, you can delve deeper in your plant capabilities and plan for future events, expansions, maintenance, and more.

Fine-tune your operating system. Automation with the Maestro software keeps the interface between you, your systems, and your equipment seamless and effective. Drive the most capacity through your plant and maintain a constant level of high performance.

Optimize the design of your aeration system. Find the necessary equipment and the places the process falls short, to build a truly effective aeration system process. From installs and tuning, to upgrades and repair, the right aeration design will maximize your energy savings and sure-up system reliability.

Selected and tuned by Maestro. Just like your aeration system, you can find the specific blower and mixer that will work best with your current process. Provide a full-spectrum response to your air and mixing needs for superior treatment and energy savings.

Manage your entire system easily. Data calibrated to your plant gives you instrument diagnostics, with prompts for maintenance, repair, and performance. We provide parts and services for all brands, making sure the maintenance is centered on reliability and long-term peak performance. 

A Path Beyond Compliance

Symphony empowers utilities to do more with less and manage business objectives beyond compliance.

Your 24/7 On-Site Advisor

Not just another tool sitting in the tool box Symphony is your operations partner to run and maintain your plant.

Transform the Design Process

Design intelligently with data specific to your plant. Use that learned-knowledge for better performance.



Smart Aeration Smart Aeration - Pinwheel
Smart Aeration Knows

With Smart Aeration - a next-generation 4.0 digital solution - automation is no longer reactive, error-based PID logic. Smart Aeration knows what process and DO (dissolved oxygen) setpoints will deliver desired results, and dynamically adjusts operating parameters based on incoming load and influencing environmental conditions.

Aeration control also changes. Smart Aeration knows the air requirements for the entire system and operates the blower and valves to meet individual zone demands.

Smart Aeration's learned-knowledge tunes in real-time as plant conditions change. Now, automation performance is no longer reliant on manual retuning.

Stepping Beyond Automation

Learned-knowledge delivers reliability. With Smart Aeration we plan for failures. Smart Aeration knows when a fault condition exists and pulls in user protocols when necessary.

Furthermore, Smart Aeration aligns maintenance with specific business objectives such as energy efficiency, plant capacity, operating uptime, lowest total ownership cost, etc.

Now, the operations team knows how the plant is being operated under all conditions and maintenance is planned and strategic. This provides peace of mind; something that conventional control systems cannot offer.

For Long Term Value

Smart Aeration captures plant-specific design insights, so capital dollars go further. Now, process units and equipment are sized not only for capacity, but also for turndown, with sufficient flexibility to meet the needs of the plant at start-up.

Now, utilities are stepping beyond compliance - pursuing initiatives including greater capacity, reduced energy use or cost, and broader environmental stewardship objectives.
