Chico Hot Springs


Automation package for new water filtration system

Chico was faced with putting in a water filtration system. Mark Cunnane P.E. with Western Groundwater Services was engaged to design the system. Mark’s design consisted of two parallel treatment trains each consisting of a VFD, filter set, UV, automatic shut-off valve and pressure transmitters.

In the fall of 2014 Affordable SCADA was engaged by Mark to provide the control package. After review of the process it was determined that this project would require a custom CP700 solution. Affordable SCADA provided the complete automation package including the M2M network and hosted HMI.

Products Used – CP700
Operator Interface – WiFi tablet at the treatment plant and a desktop computer at the engineer’s office.

Project Testimonial

“Our water filtration plant turned out to be a custom solution for Affordable SCADA but the engineers didn’t mind. They designed a custom CP700 control panel along with graphics to match on the HMI. After working out some start-up quirks the system is performing flawlessly. While I’m running the plant locally the engineer is checking in on the system from 70 miles away and reviewing the historical data to gage the system’s performance.”
