What We Offer

We provide diagnostic technologies that help process manufacturers to quickly identify and correct issues that undermine production efficiency and throughput. Our flagship product – PlantESP – actively monitors the countless PID controllers that regulate production. It provides advance warning of changes on a plant-wide basis, accurately diagnosing issues and isolating the associated root-causes. Our LOOP-PRO products make it easy to tune your facility’s most noisy, oscillatory control loops. With six simple steps LOOP-PRO tunes challenging PIDs for optimal performance.

Control Station also offers an array of onsite and remote services.  Our engineers are expert in the field of process control and provide value-added consulting and application support. They can help you solve your most pressing process control challenges.  Similarly, our team of instructors are trained to equip your staff with the core knowledge and skills they need to succeed.  Our Practical Process Control curriculum is used world-wide to teach the essentials of process dynamics and PID-based control, and our Hear-See-Do Methodology is proven in engaging trainees while teaching best-practices for control loop diagnosis and optimization.

Who We Serve

We are proud to support the diagnostic and optimization needs of leading process manufacturers located around the globe and across the process industries. In fact we’re fortunate to support more than 1 out of 3 manufacturers listed in the Fortune 500. Not only do our offerings simplify process control and plant-wide optimization, they do so by catering to the unique needs of Managers, Engineers, Technicians and Operators alike.

Control Station is also pleased to collaborate with leading educational institutions worldwide in training the next generation of engineers for success in industry. Over 200 colleges and universities rely on our process control training solutions – a portfolio of simulation-based courses that transform complex concepts into thorough understanding.



The FMI Miami Smelter recently completed an entire control system upgrade. The 100 year old Smelter that also includes an acid plant, oxygen plant, and anode plant was converted from a Honeywell DCS to a Rockwell PAC solution that included using the Control Station LOOP PRO software. The commissioning engineers were able to successfully restart the site in part by using the LOOP-PRO software to tune the existing loops within the new control system. The Control Station software helped minimize downtime after the upgrade and improve system performance.

I had a temperature differential that was low and a flow that was high. So high in fact that it required 2 chillers to run. We used LOOP-PRO to tune the process. After tuning 75 loops, the temperature differential was at an industry standard and the flow was lower. It saved us maintenance time, energy, and productivity.

Optimizing controller performance was a breeze with LOOP-PRO.  A single bump test was all that we needed to accurately model the complex dynamics of each control loop.  The software’s graphics made it easy to finely tune parameters for optimal responsiveness and control.  It easily reduced the time we budgeted for tuning by over 80%.  It’s a truly remarkable product.
