Implementation

Power Generation - CTRL works closely with several organizations around the world to integrate ultrasound technology to a wide variety of applications.

A turnkey implementation program is developed that integrates new technologies, training, and practices in a systematic way in order to maximize return on investment. A single plant can easily save up to $1,000,000 per year through increased production, use of man-power, energy savings, and more.

Power Transmission - Using the UL101 and PowerBeam 300 for routine monitoring of power transmission lines and transformers helps to ensure that generated electricity is not wasted through arcing or corona discharge.

The functional aspects of the UL101 and PowerBeam 300 were certified by India's Certified R&D Institute for detection of corona discharge from 400 kV and 250 kV insulators. Companies and government organizations in Mexico, Venezuela, South Africa, United States, China, and many more have tested and are using CTRL products today.
