INEOS Uses Emerson's Smart Wireless Technology To Monitor Filters.
Checking for leaks and other issues that can undermine environmental performance can be difficult for assets in isolated or hard-to-reach locations. Remote environmental monitoring technologies are providing an effective option in such situations.
An increasing emphasis on predictive maintenance, coupled with developments in monitoring technology and the relatively low cost of gathering data wirelessly, are prompting many initiatives at plants. Here’s a rundown of some significant efforts.
In the quest to enhance operations by better monitoring assets, selecting a demonstration project that incurs limited costs and promises a quick quantifiable payback can provide a solid foundation. Wireless can play a key role.
Siemens Industry Services incorporates Veros Systems technology in a new condition monitoring offer.
Despite condition monitoring, unplanned outages continue to be an issue, significantly impacting financial performance through lost production and extra repair costs.
The EPA’s Next Generation Compliance initiative uses advances in pollutant monitoring and information technology as well as improved reporting procedures to reduce pollution and increase compliance with environmental regulations.
Condition Monitoring Matures -- Sheila Kennedy, contributing editor, says it's a new world for the maintenance profession.
Online Monitoring Pays Off -- Wireless system succeeds in avoiding costs and increasing uptime.
Save Money on Flow Monitoring -- Less accurate and expensive sensors may suffice for non-critical applications.
Non-invasive Wireless Monitoring Provides Fast Payback -- Use on steam traps and research freezers leads to energy savings and improved uptime.
More attention to mercury and increased acceptance of predictive approaches is emerging. Such monitoring not only can keep plants on the right side of regulators but also can help provide insights for optimizing operation of equipment.
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 ...
Increasing interest will translate into far more monitoring applications. The worldwide market for wireless technology will grow 26% annually over the next few years, forecasts the ARC Advisory Group. Vendors are responding and key concerns are being addressed.
Many refineries rely on assets now beyond their original design life. Often the sites also handle different and more-corrosive feedstocks than they were designed for. Continuous corrosion monitoring can play a valuable role in avoiding problems.
Vacuum Technology Tackles Voids -- Innovative use of existing technology and new developments improve performance.
Two issues undermined valve maintenance — and hence production — at a Houston plant. The site had valve-monitoring hardware and software but didn’t widely use them. A program to take full advantage of them provided significant benefits.
