Instrumentation & Controls

Instrumentation and controls are essential to the smooth operation of any plant or equipment.

At Black Rock, we believe that proper controls design is key for consistent product, safety, and cost savings.


The first step to good control is good instrumentation. We can provide the design, drawings and data sheets to ensure that the proper levels, pressures, flows, etc. are appropriately measured and controlled.

Specialty Instrumentation

In addition to “standard” instrumentation, we have experience with specialty detection and monitoring. This may include:

  • density monitoring
  • moisture detection
  • vibration monitoring
  • air quality monitoring
  • FTIR analysers
  • multiplexing panels
Controls System

Whether it be an addition to an existing system or a whole new system, we can provide the design.

  • P&ID, flow and block diagrams
  • Wiring and schematics
  • PLCs and DCSs
  • Motor control
  • Operator interface (control panels, HMIs, SCADA systems)
  • Enterprise-wide SCADA systems
  • Appropriate levels of alarming
  • Historians
  • Remote access
  • Functional specifications
  • Programming and commissioning
