Since the formation of Astles Control Systems (ACS) by Peter Astles in 1989, the company has steadily grown to become a major supplier of chemical dosing and control systems. Due to the continued growth of the company in 2009 we moved into new purpose built premises. This has allowed us to recruit more staff and continue to grow. Offering the high level of service our customers have come to expect.
ACS's products are sold to many different manufacturing industries. The main industries are two-piece beverage cans, automotive, engineering and motor components, white goods, architectural aluminium and steel. Exports have grown to account for 70% of ACS's turnover. Our principal engineers are Roger Havercroft, Hal Stephenson, Dan Ollett, and Joe Headland.
We are suppliers of online industrial controls systems, including the PC500, PC50 and PC45 chemical controllers using Allen Bradley Micrologix/Compactlogix series PLCs and Red Lion G310 displays. At the sensing end, we supply Fluoride electrodes, pH electrodes, conductivity probes and RmV sensors. We designed the 762 probe holder to work with all these electrodes and since its introduction we have experienced extraordinary reliability. With its double-junction technology, the 762 offers excellent stability and performance. We manufacture analysers to suit all these probes and all are designed to withstand gruelling industrial environments.
We supply a large range of dosing pumps, including Grundfos Digital Dosing Pumps. We still stock spare parts for the obsolete Nikkiso-Eiko Chemipon BA range of pumps and our experienced engineers can refurbish used pumps, often making them work like new.
We stock an extensive range of laboratory sensing equipment, including pH, Fluoride, Redox, RmV, turbidity, and conductivity meters, either bench meters or handheld. We supply both Thermo-Orion and Mettler Toledo benchmeters and portable meters and all the probes to go with them. To complete the range, we supply handheld colorimeters and turbidity meters.
We can provide maintenance services and calibration to national standards. You have the choice of sending the equipment to us or, if that isn't convenient, you can book a site visit by one of our engineers. We provide service contracts for regular maintenance and calibration for ultimate peace of mind.
Our ISO9001 accreditation means that you can trust us to provide a high quality service every time.
