Greg McMillan wins best paper/presentation in his category for his Control Valve Modeling and Control entry. Here are 33 best practices that Greg shares from the paper.
Jacob Tardoni presents Mapping an Evacuation in Real-Time—Digital Mustering with Wireless Personnel Location Technology at the 2023 AIChE Spring Meeting. It explored barriers to speedy evacuation & mustering and how to apply digital mustering technology to address and overcome these barriers.
March 12-16, is a face-to-face meeting in Houston, Texas, the 2023 Spring Meeting and 19th Global Congress on Process Safety. Some of the Emerson presenters and topics include: Jacob Tardoni—Mapping an Evacuation in Real-Time: Digital Mustering with Wireless Personnel Location Technology; Greg McMillan—Best Practices in Column Control Distilled, and Control Valve Response Modeling and Control.
It’s great to see the return of face-to-face gatherings at industry conferences. Spring is a busy time here in Texas this week and next with the 4C HSE Conference in Austin and AIChE Spring Meeting in San Antonio.
pH control can be extremely challenging due to exceptional nonlinearity and sensitivity particularly when strong acids and strong bases are used. Advances in electrode design and signal selection can greatly help. The need to reduce oscillations from valve resolution limit and backlash can be addressed by valve design and use of a PID feature.
Emerson’s Tim Olsen received the great news that he had been selected as a recipient of the AIChE Fuels and Petrochemicals Division Award for 2022. Each year, this division recognizes individuals who have made substantial technological contributions to the advancement of fuels and petrochemicals industries.
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.
In manufacturing processes with flowing fluids, control valves are among the most important equipment to keep the process operating smoothly and reliably. For those not experienced in their design and operation, AIChE's CEP magazine has a great article, Evaluate...
The history of model predictive control (MPC) dates back to the early 1970s invented at Shell Oil and was known as Dynamic Matrix Control. MPC was designed at that time to solve largescale control challenges. As technology advanced, this technology could be more...
Defining operational states and codifying these into control strategies has many advantages in improving safety and overall operational performance. In an AIChE Spring Meeting presentation, A New Look at Industrial Incidents—Driving Operating Discipline in the Control...
Springtime here in the Northern hemisphere means lots of industry and professional organization events. This week I've highlighted happenings from the pharmaceutical and biotech manufacturing industry at Interphex 2019. Also going on this week is a gathering of...
This past fall, the AIChE organization for chemical engineering professionals held an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) Applications and Industry 4.0 Forum as part of their 2018 Annual Meeting. Emerson’s Tim Olsen (center) moderated a video recorded session with...
