Pneumatic Energy Control
Bringing in solutions from ROSS Controls and Continental Hydraulics, Donald Engineering applies Category b-4, Performance Level c-e components to control your stored energy sources. Control Reliable safety isn't just a matter of electrical control. Alternate energy sources, such as gravity, compressed air, and hydraulic pressure from accumulators or pump systems must also be dealt with to ensure maximum safety.
If a solenoid sticks, spring breaks, or contact welds itself shut, do you know how your energy source is going to be controlled and whether or not you can safely enter the machine environment?
Let the safety professionals from Donald Engineering help you with a risk assessment and its documentation, allowing you to move forward confidently knowing you've applied the appropriate equipment and understand the best-known safety practices.
Energy Isolation Does Not Stop at the End of the Wire
All too often, it is believed that controlling a machine's electrical power supply will mitigate the risk of accident or failure and render the machine safe.
However, when it comes to machine safety, electrons are just one of many forces and factors that need to be considered. Energy from compressed air, hydraulic pressure, and gravity are often overlooked. Donald Engineering offers not only the components to build a safety system, but the skills and expertise to apply them correctly as well. From risk assessment and risk mitigation, to control reliable containment of energy, we'll help you to properly design a safety system that protects your employees and your investment in order to ensure a lower total cost of ownership.
