P&P Logistics (Pty) Ltd in 2002.

The purpose of the company is to provide process control and control system engineering, system
integration and, project management to industries requiring process automation.

The company places a very strong emphasis on process control knowledge for detail instrumentation
and control systems engineering. It is for this reason that we specialises in the control of processes
such as, but not limited to:

- Water Purification (Potable) -
- Water Treatment (Ion Exchange) -
- Condensate Polishing -
- Station Control (Reticulation) -
- Boilers -
- Dense Media Separation -
- Diamond Mining -
- Materials Handling -
- Metal and Steel -
- Pulp and Paper -
- Lime and Cement Kilns -
- Chemical Plants -

 

 

COMPANY MISSION
 

We are in the business of offering innovative and appropriate instrumentation and control system
engineering solutions in a cost-effective manner.

In order to support this mission, we are committed to:

- Engineer systems to the client's and process requirements at the most cost-effective
and time efficient way -
- Support client in system development, consultation and engineering -
- Deliver effectively and more efficiently than any competitor -
- Focusing all our resources towards meeting customer needs in the most cost-effective manner -
- Continuously improve the services offered to the clients -

SYSTEM INTEGRATION
 
We are PLC and DCS Engineering Solution Providers (ESP's) and System Integrators. ABB,
Allen Bradley, Siemens and Foxboro are only a few systems to mention.

The client's requirements are evaluated and a solution proposed based on suitable control systems
selected from a wide variety of products available in the market.

The Human Machine Interface (HMI) can vary from Adroit, Advant, Citech, Factorylink, InTouch, RSView, or various others, as is technically suitable for the application and the proposed control system.

Process I/O simulation is done as part of the software engineering for system testing purposes and
operator training on the control system before commissioning commences.

Forward documentation is offered for the field hardware design to propagate changes automatically
and to capture data and revisions electronically.
