In a North American Mining article, Optimizing all the variables related to comminution and separation requires sophisticated control strategies, Emerson’s David Harrach teamed with Devin Marshman from Emerson Impact Partner, Spartan Controls.
The rapid development of the COVID-19 vaccine has created a dramatic shift in the way the public and life sciences organizations view the manufacturing of pharmaceuticals. In a recent Q&A with Pharma Manufacturing, Nathan Pettus, president of Emerson’s process...
One of the challenges expressed by lithium battery manufacturers is that they have to be fast and agile because each of their customers may have different formulations for the cathode, anode, and electrolyte material.
Properly tuned loops are critical to efficient, effective plant performance. However, constant changes in the plant environment mean that proportional-integral-derivative (PID) tuning cannot be a set-and-forget procedure. This poses a problem for many modern plants,...
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.
If you can improve your control loop performance, cut out that variability, then you will be able to reduce your energy consumption, increase your throughput and have a more stable product quality.
Over the last decade or so we’ve seen rack after rack of servers disappear as organizations have embraced virtualization technology. Not only does moving to a virtualized backbone reduce equipment footprint, but it also dramatically reduces energy usage to help plants...
In the last five years, simulation technologies have been a critical tool used to drive digital transformation of automated processes. In simulated environments, organizations can provide comprehensive training for personnel and test new control configurations without...
The growth of lithium-ion battery production for electric vehicles will occur in mining, battery component manufacturing, and battery cell production from an automation standpoint.
One of Emerson’s Principle Consultants, Lou Heavner, was recently asked a series of questions about process optimization in the mining industry. Here are Lou’s answers to the questions asked.
Plant network load balancing, cybersecurity, single-port firewall traversals, and other networking, data transport and storage challenges have constrained organizations in the ability to access these data sets at the scale desired. Growing volumes of data from operating plants is finding its way to enterprise IT networks including cloud platforms and is being leveraged in large numbers of use cases.
We have witnessed an incredible change the last few years in how life sciences manufacturers deliver treatments. Today’s focus is on fast results, and that means products patients rely on cannot sit on shelves for weeks or months waiting on quality validation. In a...
