A New Spin on Safety
All materials and processes have multiple hazards. However, it is highly unlikely that any alternative process will be inherently safer with respect to all hazards. So, optimization efforts must focus on identifying the design that gives the best overall combination of desirable characteristics.
Achieve total productive maintenance
In order to achieve all the benefits of a total productive maintenance program, you have to start with autonomous maintenance and a CMMS. This can lead to maximum equipment effectiveness through the elimination of defects, downtime, slowdown, and so on.
Adaptive control takes a leap forward
The next generation of adaptive controllers will identify a process model quickly and automatically and provide process model parameters that can be displayed, trended and diagnosed.
An alternative check
Readers offer tips about reliable alternatives to conventional check valves. Suggestions include using a fluidic check valve, switching to a U-trap, using a standpipes putting two check valves in the series and changing position relative to the ground.
Are you up to snuff with S84 and OSHA?
Check your safety systems liability at the door. Choosing to ignore S84 standards could put your company on a collision course with OSHA and consequently open you up to criminal liability.
