The Process Instrumentation Group is headed by Ralph Hewitt – manager-Process Instrumentation. Ralph’s experience includes various roles in plant operations and QC management at large grain processing and food processing facilities with companies such as Cargill, ADM and Pinnacle Foods.
The group includes Brian Schultetus – product specialist – Systems Integration, Darin Crossland – product specialist – Applications Development, and Magnus Nilsson – product specialist Hardware and Customer Care. In addition to the dedicated staff, Perten Instruments has spent much of the past 18 months establishing a network of vendors capable of assisting Perten in responding to the needs of their customers.
The department’s functions and mandates include site evaluation visits, installations, systems integration, applications development, training, and support. The group’s initial focus is on the Perten diode array based near-infrared (NIR) process analyzers. The group will continue to expand as new process instrumentation is added to the Perten product portfolio. Many new advances in product development are scheduled for release in 2012.
"Process instrumentation is one of our largest areas of growth” reports Gavin O’Reilly – president of Perten Instruments, Inc. "We are very excited to have this highly qualified group to serve our process instrumentation customers."
