Steam is a critical part of many process manufacturing processes and the energy to produce it can be a significant source of operational costs. I recently caught up with process automation hall-of-fame member Greg McMillan and Emerson’s Scott Pettigrew at the Emerson Exchange conference here in Austin. Greg and Stan Weiner had recently interviewed Scott […]

The cost of electrical power has grown more complex over time. It used to be that your kilowatt-hours (kwh) consumed were tallied to arrive at the cost. As the metering has grown more sophisticated, variable rates have emerged based on peak energy usage, time of day, usage thresholds and more. I connected with Emerson’s Bill […]

Plan. Do. Check. Act. From Wikipedia: PDCA (plan–do–check–act or plan–do–check–adjust) is an iterative four-step management method used in business for the control and continual improvement of processes and products. It is also known as the Deming circle/cycle/wheel, Shewhart cycle, control circle/cycle, or plan–do–study–act (PDSA). The ISO 50001:2011 global energy management standard, modeled after the ISO […]

Steam boilers are used in sugar mills to generate electricity and for heat in various stages of production, such as crystallization process. This process converts the sugar syrup into sugar crystals. Optimizing the performance of the boilers improves energy efficiency and reliability for this required heat and electricity. I caught up with Emerson’s Scott Pettigrew […]
