The December editions of the Emerson Exchange Americas virtual series are taking place Tuesday and Thursday this week and next week. Ed Schodowski led the Refining Industry Forum with leaders from BP, Chevron and Ergon Refining to get an update on the technologies and solutions driving digital transformation initiatives for improved performance.
In a Control Engineering article, Emerson’s Andrew Cureton looks at several wireless protocols vying for greater adoption with industrial users. There is immense hype around 5G these days. It will change our lives, we hear - but will it be an improved solution for...
In this storage terminal safety podcast, we are joined by Emerson’s Kurtis Jensen to discuss specific technologies that provide the highest level of reliability and safety. These technologies enable technicians, users and operators to detect issues and monitor for correct valve positions with and reduce the number of times they need to send staff into hazardous locations.
A Refiner’s Guide to Digital Transformation and Top Quartile Performance article, Better business results through flexible logistics operations, shares how these refineries can improve the flexibility as well as safety, efficiency, and reliability of their tank farm operations.
A Hydrocarbon Processing article, Ergon Refining: A digital transformation story, provides a great illustration of a step-wise, scalable digital transformation journey that continues to drive business improvements. The authors, Ergon Refining’s Steve Elwart and Emerson’s Marcelo Carugo, share this journey and the results achieved.
What often holds manufacturers and producers back on their digital transformation journeys is where to begin and how best to proceed. For those in the chemical process industries, Emerson’s Tim Olsen has written a Chemical Engineering Progress (CEP) article, Understanding the Digital Transformation.
Emerson’s Marcelo Carugo will present on November 18 as part of the ERTC Digitalisation Technologies technical stream–Digital Innovations in refinery safety in a Post-COVID 19 environment.
Emerson’s Seth Natala and Dan Cychosz show how to apply new engineering design tools when selecting a DP flow meter and other instrumentation. Anyone who has tried to troubleshoot an equipment problem might have wondered how a specific piece was selected in the first...
In an article in the AFPM Summit Conference News, Emerson’s Jacob Swafford makes the case for continuous versus intermittent condition monitoring. I don’t think I have ever met a maintenance manager who said that condition monitoring is a waste of time. They agree...
In an article from the Refiner’s Guide to Digital Transformation and Top Quartile Performance, Fuel blending: The key to unlocking your refinery’s cash register, Emerson’s Patrick Truesdale shares why changing the traditional way of holding inventory by adopting inline blending can eliminate expenses associated with building and maintaining tanks and save millions in working capital by no longer holding excessive inventory.
In a Hydrocarbon Processing article, Leveraging modern flow technologies to improve safety in refineries, Emerson’s Meha Jha and Julie Valentine describe how advancements in these flow measurements, “…enhance safety and improve uptime, flexibility and efficiency, while securing their competitive position in a dynamic market.”
In a Hydrocarbon Engineering article, Emerson’s Amanda Alexander describes two ways to extend existing wireless networks for worker location and toxic gas monitoring. Emerson colleagues who were around back at the dawn of WirelessHART tell me the earliest deployments...
