The key to many sustainability initiatives is reducing energy consumption and emissions. Often the measurements are not in place to identify opportunities for improvement.

This 3-minute YouTube video, Reach Sustainability Goals and Monitor Energy Usage With Wireless Solutions and Apps, shows how actionable insights can help drive measurable progress toward your sustainability targets by adding wireless measurements, networks, and analytics.

Challenges many manufacturers and producers face are overcoming excessive energy consumption, lack of visibility into energy efficiency or emission sources, and lack of resources and expertise to drive improvements—the video shares three specific monitoring examples—pressure relief valves, steam traps, and heat exchangers.

By monitoring pressure relief valves for relief events and leaks, emissions can be significantly reduced, and operations made more efficient. Rosemount 708 Wireless Acoustic Transmitters combined with Plantweb Insight Pressure Relief Valve monitoring analytics software can quickly identify, quantify and notify personnel to take immediate action.

Failed steam traps can be one of the largest sources of energy waste causing higher fuel consumption and emissions. The wireless acoustic transmitters combined with Plantweb Insight Steam Trap Monitoring analytics software can locate the problem steam traps and enable fixes to be quickly made.

For heat exchangers, fouling and corrosion drive increased energy usage and affect product quality. The Plantweb Heat Exchanger Monitoring analytics software and wireless sensor data including temperature, flow, and differential pressure measurements, can address issues before leading to degraded performance.

Visit the Plantweb Insight section on Emerson.com for more on these and other operational analytics software packages to drive measurable, actionable, scalable, and reportable sustainability performance improvements.
