Control of Industrial Processes

Shows the system status of a facility flare and process variables on a mobile phone. See the demo below.

The SCS RMC® team integrates HTML web-based technology into our client solutions enabling us to build dynamic industrial applications that automatically respond to each client’s unique needs.

SCS RMC builds full SCADA, HMI, and alarm systems, providing you with a mobile view of your operations via smartphones and other mobile devices. Full-control of industrial processes is more mobile, customizable, scalable, and secure than ever before.

The application can reduce O&M costs by:

  • Proactively avoiding system and equipment issues by sending instant notifications
  • The ability to remotely troubleshoot a system or piece of equipment, reducing onsite callouts
  • Automatic reporting
  • Automatic data collection and storage in a secure, cloud-based environment
  • High-clarity data visualization.





SCS GIS Demo – Viewing subsurface conditions

Examining multiple wellfield conditions, then zooming in on specific well metrics makes assigning field staff and technicians more efficient. At a glance operators can see where pumps are, how high liquids are, and where to send staff to correct infrastructure that minimizes gas pull.  Operators in the office or from a remote location can virtually maneuver around the landfill, zoom in to see detail, or zoom back to look at the larger footprint — all underground.

It’s like having superpowers!



SCS Engineers and Waste Management Podcast – Improving Sustainability in Waste Management – We discuss how operational improvements are being made in this essential service and its environmental footprint. They dive into the 24/7 maintenance and monitoring of landfills, adjusting to changing conditions in real-time, reducing cost, generating renewable energy, improving the health and safety of operators, and being proactive in a changing world. We also hear about an Ignition-based solution called Connected Landfills that is improving connectivity, mobility, and visualization by using data science to facilitate better decisions.



Industry Leader Gets Connected with Perspective Podcast 

Landfills and their systems require ongoing operations and maintenance support. This support can be required at any time of the day or night in all weather conditions. The support can be costly to provide in terms of the physical cost to the employee and the monetary cost to the company.

Landfills contain many systems which are physically connected and dependent upon each other but are generally not connected together from a controls standpoint. These systems are spread out over hundreds of acres of land. Many of these systems must be monitored for environmental regulatory compliance. Like other systems, they also require maintenance and response to alarm conditions. Historically, much of the monitoring, response to alarms, and maintenance activities were performed manually.

WM partnered with SCS Engineers’ Remote Monitoring & Controls division and Vertech to implement an Ignition 8.0 Perspective SCADA system at the WM landfill in West Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. This design has become a standard template for SCADA at WM landfills and facilities.
