Instrumentation: Consider Cascade Control -- Such configurations sometimes offer benefits for tubular exchangers.
How would you rate your site's efforts to keep its process and instrumentation diagrams current?
A simple task such as reading pressure measurements actually can be harder than it seems.
A number of options are available for getting a temperature measurement. The sensor can contact the material of interest via mounting in one of a number of types of thermowells on a pipe or vessel or a non-contact sensor can be used. Here’s a guide.
How up-to-date are your plants piping and instrumentation drawings?
Consider other types of elements for differential pressure measurement.
Select the Right Liquid Level Sensor -- It's important to consider a variety of factors when choosing the type of technology.
Eliminate Signal Gibberish -- Several steps can help maintain the integrity of measurement and control signals
Save Money on Flow Monitoring -- Less accurate and expensive sensors may suffice for non-critical applications.
Properly Measure Duct Flow -- Getting accurate readings can pose challenges.
The proper configuration of process instrumentation is crucial but can take a lot of time, often causing delays and adding cost. Cloud-based tools provide a way to cut engineering cost and effort, improve project efficiency and reduce configuration errors.
Todays plants come ready equipped with their own team of doctors in the shape of the many diagnostic and monitoring systems incorporated into instrumentation and other process equipment. And, like any good doctor, todays plant diagnostics can look beyond the symptoms of poorly performing ...
Often, because of cost or lack of understanding of its importance, instrumentation gets left out of solids processes, causing ongoing problems. Four measurements usually are necessary to adequately control systems.
Instrumentation that promises to improve reliability may not always be what they seem. You have to consider whether a site can properly maintain sophisticated instruments.
Sample conditioning systems can suffer from incorrect temperature, restricted flow, improper phase control, etc., thus compromising analyzer measurements. A new standard may lead to better ways to address these challenges.

Simplifying instrument verification can minimize expensive calibrations.
A four-phase risk reduction strategy can play a crucial role
Don't Underestimate Overfilling's Risks -- High level can pose serious hazards but seven simple steps can prevent them
DuPont engineers chose Intelligent Device Manager software from Emerson Process Management to help manage all the data available from their instrumentation.
The importance of having the inherent capability to meet operating requirements and enable proper instrumentation performance is stressed by Contributing Editor Andrew Sloley.
It has been nearly a decade since the Instrumentation, Systems and Automation Society (ISA) introduced S88, its first standard for batch control systems. It's still integral in optimizing operations today.
The need accurate metering always pushes the advancement of flow instrumentation
