Real-time analyzers play an important role in many process manufacturing operations. Some examples include natural gas custody transfer, combustion efficiency monitoring, combustion emissions component analysis, flowing fluid compositional analysis and more. Not only is the selection of the right analyzer for the right application important, but so is how it is installed and managed to […]

I saw a tweet from Control magazine editor-in-chief Walt Boyes, which alerted me to a presentation that I needed to get my hands on. Emerson’s Bob Sabin, a member of the industrial energy team, was kind enough to provide me a copy. You may recall Bob from several energy efficiency-related posts. A fellow member of […]

Emerson’s Thomas Snowdon, a member of the Power & Water Solutions team, shares his thoughts on the changing global energy mix. A recent Power Magazine article, Global Gas Glut, made much of the prediction that shale gas production and its use is likely to grow from 14% of all gas in 2009 to 48% in […]

Back in January, I shared some thoughts from Emerson’s Doug Simmers on improving combustion in a post, Optimum Combustion for Reduced Greenhouse Emissions. He’ll be presenting later this year on flue gas analysis and I was able to get my hands on a rough draft. I’ll highlight a few of his early ideas and hope […]
