In addition to the hazardous area installation certification, the skid-mounted Zephyr® AMB control system provides optimized performance, high reliability and delivers lower maintenance costs.

In addition the technology allows for remote connectivity to monitor, tune and perform diagnostic services. Also important is the high processing performance for complex algorithms which provides high dynamic efficiency for flexible production output capacity.
