Traditionally, most of the sensors in industrial processes were wired into the control systems or supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems. Because of the expense of the sensors, junction boxes, cabling/conduit/cable trays/etc. and installation and commissioning time, sensors were usually limited to just what was required for control. But as process manufacturers and producers […]

Last week in a post, Reducing Demand Charges in Energy Bills, we highlighted the opportunity for process manufacturers and producers to optimize energy costs. Today, we’ll look at how to better identify these opportunities for energy savings. Emerson’s Bill Thackston explained to me that even in these current times of low energy prices that it […]

Energy management information systems, such as Energy Advisor, can help spot, alert operators and report on energy overconsumption events. In this quick, 46 second YouTube video, Energy Advisor: Overconsumption Alerts, it shows how to identify and log root causes for energy over-consumption events. From this data, energy managers can review Pareto charts indicating the most […]

In a quick Emerson Exchange 365 Operate & Maintain group discussion post, Plant modernization for energy efficiency and loss control, Emerson’s Barbara Hamilton alerted the community to a nice article in Control Engineering Asia magazine. The article with the same title by Emerson’s Jonas Berge describes how additional measurements in older process manufacturing and production […]

In an earlier post, Identifying Components then Optimizing Industrial Energy Consumption, we discussed how energy optimization initiatives were affected by what could be measured. Emerson’s Jonas Berge added a great comment to that post, which I will share here to bring it greater visibility. Running fans at excess speed, failed steam traps, fouling, inefficient combustion, […]
