Alfa Laval Touch Control is new standard of control for marine boilers


20170515ep44Alfa Laval Touch Control is being rolled out successively for new and existing Alfa Laval Aalborg boilers. Alfa Laval Aalborg OL and OC-TCi boilers will now feature advanced control with a simple touch.

With its graphical touchscreen display and intuitive two-touch navigation, Alfa Laval Touch Control is a major leap forward in boiler control technology. As the new common control platform for all Alfa Laval Aalborg boilers, the system will be a familiar interface for crews, regardless of which boiler they work with. Already it can be found aboard a range of newbuilds, and additional deliveries are underway.

Alfa Laval Touch Control is a tried-and-tested solution. Built with Alfa Laval technology, it has already been proven in the engine room on other marine systems from Alfa Laval. In addition, it is used at the Alfa Laval Test and Training Centre, where it steers the centre’s own boilers and aids the continuous development and optimisation of systems for new boiler types.

What Alfa Laval Touch Control offers is entirely new for boilers, as customers who experience the test rig at the Alfa Laval Test & Training Centre quickly recognise. During trainings, the rig is used to show the many ways in which boiler operation can be optimised.

Simple and effective boiler operation

Intuitive control means easier and better boiler operation. With a complete view of the plant and easy access to all functions, crews can make faster, smarter decisions that optimise boiler use. Supporting those decisions are features such as integrated manuals and user-defined trend pages.

Flexible, future-proof and available for retrofit

Alfa Laval Touch Control is PLC-based, which gives it plug-and-play simplicity and high durability in the engine room. With coverage for all major bus interfaces, it is easily connected to on-board communication systems. Likewise, Alfa Laval Service engineers can quickly retrofit it to an existing Alfa Laval Aalborg OL, OS-TCi or OC-TCi boiler, as has already been done on a number of tanker vessels. In addition, Alfa Laval Touch Control offers the flexibility of firmware upgrades. This will let the system adapt as new needs arise.
