Continuous corrosion monitoring offers the granularity, accuracy, and reproducibility that traditional periodic monitoring methods such as manual inspection do not. Using these traditional methods mean it is impossible to link corrosion incidents to asset integrity, which leads to chemical operators acting reactively rather than proactively.
Emerson recommended Rosemount X-well Technology with Rosemount 3144P Temperature Transmitter for ammonia production applications to improve measurement accuracy and reduce safety risks due to errors in readings.
In a PI Magazine article, Emerson’s Charu Pandey considers how the chemical processing industry is re-learning critical technology lessons.
In today’s manufacturing environment, where fewer experienced people are running the plant, well-designed alarm strategies are more important than ever. A timely, clear, accurate alarm—one that is not buried in an alarm flood—can mean the difference between safe...
At the 2022 ARC Industry Forum, a session Building a Portfolio for Sustainability was hosted by ARC Advisory Group’s Peter Reynolds, and included AspenTech’s Paige Morse to discuss the role of operational analytics & optimization in driving sustainable operations performance improvements.
It is difficult to find a process industry application that doesn’t burn some kind of fuel to generate heat. And where there’s combustion, environmental regulators won’t be far behind because industrial-scale fired heaters, boilers, and other processes invariably...
The midstream part of the lithium value chain involves manufacturing the Cathode, Anode, Electrolyte, and Separator. We will focus on the cathode, anode, and electrolyte in this series of posts. The process for making the Cathode, Anode, and Electrolyte is very similar. The process involves batch reactors and mixing.
In a World of Chemicals article, Improving Process Batch Performance in the Chemical Industry, Emerson’s Varshneya Sridharan shares considerations for effective level measurement in both batch and continuous processes.
In an AIChE recorded webinar, Digital Innovations for Improving Safety in Chemical Plants, Emerson’s Michael Machuca and Marty McDonough highlight was to drive safety improvements for this important industry.
Historically, differing asset monitoring devices, even if mounted on the same installation, might have very different ways of sending their data or configuration methods. Such a situation leaves project teams in a bind—do they stick with only one type of sensor,...
In a recorded webinar, Achieving Repeatable Golden Batch Outcomes, Chemical Engineering magazine’s Scott Jenkins hosts Emerson’s Michael Machuca and Marty McDonough to discuss some of the automation solutions that can improve the Right First Time metric.
In the chemical industry, manufacturers often need to change operations or accommodate new products to meet customer demand. However, the extensive integration efforts required to connect manufacturing equipment and automation systems often complicate engineering,...
