  • Process Engineering: HART Offers Value in Plant Control Systems

    There's a myth in plants that HART offers little for Plant Control Systems and Enterprise Level Networks. But Ed Ladd from the HART Communication Foundation writes that by accessing the data in HART devices on a "full-time" routine basis increases performance, integrity, and reliability of plant control and enterprise level systems.

  • Process engineering: Dryer provides a concrete lesson in control

    Removing water or moisture from a liquid stream is a critical operation in many processes. Liquid stream dryers commonly contain either molecular sieves or adsorbents; during the last 20 years, the use of molecular sieves has become much more common.

  • Process Engineering: FRI meets distillation needs

    Distillation has always been a critical and costly step in the manufacture of products in the petroleum, chemical, and pharmaceutical industries. Fractionation Research reveals how companies can pool their efforts to obtain experimental distillation data.

  • World Batch Forum North American Conference nearing

    This year’s conference will feature 18 speakers, as well as panel discussions covering a wide range of topics of interest to automation users and suppliers, including ISA88 and ISA95. Keynote speakers will be Dave Beckmann and Ian Nimmo, both long-time veterans of the process control industry.

  • Process Manufacturing Workforce: Don't Be Thrown for a Loop

    When processing chemicals, it has become increasingly important to isolate the process from the work environment. The agitated filter dryer accomplishes this by providing a high degree of containment.
