  • Distillation, Part 5: Multiple Products

    In Part 5 of this series on distillation control and optimization, we find that adding a side-stream component to your process gives an additional degree of freedom, but makes it even more essential to not mismatch the variables.

  • Learn about green engineering, processes, bulk-solid handling

  • Wireless finds its calling

    For maintenance and condition-monitoring, wireless technology offers much more than just reducing or eliminating costs. However, wireless also requires an integrated infrastructure approach rather than independent, proprietary point solutions.

  • Plug it in?: The decision to integrate condition monitoring

    Efforts to tighten communications of condition-monitoring instrumentation and data analysis software with CMMS and automation infrastructure, combined with the proliferation of wireless sensor systems and the drive to reduce manpower skill and time requirements, are bringing implementation costs down and drawing much attention to this approach. But should you implement it?

  • Wireless: Ready or not

    A lively discussion of the current role of wireless in online condition monitoring.

  • What Works: Wireless PCs streamline warehouse operations

    The basic principles of Lean Manufacturing date back at least to the 18th century. In Poor Richard's Almanack, Benjamin Franklin wrote, “He that idly loses 5s. [shillings] worth of time, loses 5s., and might as prudently throw 5s. into the river. He that loses 5s not only loses that sum, but all the other advantages that might be made by turning it in dealing, which, by the time a young man becomes old, amounts to a comfortable bag of money.”

  • Can the global chemical industry sustain growth?

  • Blind Transmitters: A return to the basics

    Analog transmitters easily send process measurements from different areas in a plant to a central PLC where process control decisions can be made based on transmitter feedback. Analog transmitters are great cost-saving alternatives to single-point controllers. In situations where multiple sensing locations are required, single point controllers’ costs can add up quickly.
