More than 25% of maintenance done today is unnecessary and can introduce additional failure risks. Developing and implementing predictive maintenance strategies and practices can lead to improved safety and reduced operating costs. In this Chemical Processing eHandbook, we take a look at strategies and solutions for overcoming predictive maintenance challenges including:
Asset management software - identifying the most relevant and accurate data on which to build maintenance and repair strategies
The importance of maintenance on smaller component - using gauges as early warning devices can improve uptime, safety and profits
Uncovering important insights from your data and the use of statistics such as regression analysis for emulating pump curves or control valves

With more demanding applications than most, chemical processing requires systems and infrastructure that can maintain efficiency and safety. Relative to flow, chemical processors need to address challenges such as corrosion, leak detection and mitigation, flow pressure and volume. In this Chemical Processing Flow eHandbook, we identify tips to improve flow including:
Distillation columns - how gravity-flow loop can enable measuring internal liquid flow in a column
The importance of the Process Design Basis
Flowmeters - monitor, detect and neutralize phosgene leaks
Polymer Piping - Material offers numerous benefits over metallic systems and spans various applications
