Across many process manufacturing and producing industries, falling prices are driving the need for increased efficiency and reliability, as well as reduced costs. While optimizing process control can yield gains, so can applying technology to the condition of the equipment involved in process operations. In a Control Engineering Asia article, Multi-parameter Condition Monitoring, Emerson’s Jonas […]

Yesteryear, energy and water were relatively inexpensive, waste disposal carried little cost, emissions did not incur fines and people willing to work in harsh manufacturing plant and production facility environments were abundant. Today, energy and water costs are high, waste disposal is expensive, emission fines are high, and people with the right skills to work […]

When it comes to instrumentation and final control elements which touch the process, materials of construction are one of the critical selection criteria. In a whitepaper, PPS Outshines Stainless Steel in Chemically Hostile Valve Applications, Emerson’s Steve Attri describes how this PPS material is highly resistant to corrosion in highly-corrosive applications. He opens defining and […]

Process measurement devices are installed where required to monitor, control, and safely shutdown the process. But often, additional measurements combined with the existing ones can help to improve several areas of process operations performance. I saw a chart from Emerson’s Jonas Berge which highlighted four areas for potential improvement—reliability and maintenance, energy efficiency and loss […]

So how exactly does Formula 1 (F1) racing compare with process manufacturing and production? It’s an interesting question that Emerson’s Mike Boudreaux explores in an Uptime magazine article, Chasing the Checkered Flag. In both cases, optimum performance results from enhanced data and the collaboration of experts. Key to this success is the focus on reliability […]
