|Who are we?
As those experienced in instrumentation sometimes say,
"One measurement is worth a thousand expert opinions."
The name ACME has been associated with an Indianapolis-based process sales
organization for over 80 years. The present ACME Process Equipment Company (APEC)
was formed in 1987, having previously existed as the "non-Fisher Controls" products
division of Acme Controls, now Cornerstone Controls. APEC's products
are process variable sensors and final control elements; and, APEC serves
the process control and other industries throughout most of
Indiana and eastern Illinois.
Although a few of APEC's instrumentation products are available
from several suppliers, most of what APEC offers is unique, with
capabilities or features not generally available elsewhere. Some
are more obvious, like TN Technologies Process-Isolated Radar Level
Transmitters. Others are more subtle, like Perma-Cal
pressure gauges, which save maintenance budgets by outlasting
conventional pressure gauges many times over.
If you're in a process control-related field, and if your
conditions involve level, flow, composition, density, pressure,
temperature, or electrical position control, the chances are good
that APEC can help. We have both an inside and outside sales staff
and local inventory of commonly-needed items.
APEC's advantage to you, our customer, is that we have access
to many diverse instruments from a variety of manufacturers.
Therefore, we have no reason either to try and force-fit a marginal
technology, or to push an overkill technology, because we're not in
the situation that those are all we have to sell. Each of our
manufacturers knows that we won't recommend their product if
we feel it wouldn't be the best economic or technological choice
for our customer. It helps avoid misapplication and it ensures our
instruments have the best chance for a reliable and long service life.
Call us anytime. With our applications experience and wide
range of technologies, we'll help you select the right instrument
for your application. Or if you like, we'll offer you an advisory
opinion to confirm or review your tentative choice for the job.
You won't encounter any high pressure sales tactics. You'll get
knowledgeable, helpful people who'll either find the answers to
your questions, or who'll refer you to another supplier when
appropriate. We hope you'll agree that APEC can be an
exceptionally capable resource for your complete measurement needs.
Thank you for considering APEC. We look forward to working with you.
