Calibrating Fiscal Transfer Measurements with Master Meter Provers

Calibrating Fiscal Transfer Measurements with Master Meter Provers

Accuracy of fiscal transfer measurement is of great importance as even a small error in measurement can lead to a large financial difference. Provers ensure a fiscal transfer system is providing the most accurate measurement possible. They provide a stationary or mobile means to facilitate calibration of flow meters before, during or after a transfer.

How to Effectively Migrate from SCADA to IIoT Technologies in Oil & Gas

How to Effectively Migrate from SCADA to IIoT Technologies in Oil & Gas

Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies are being adopted by every industry, and oil and gas is no exception. Recent events have certainly emphasized the need for IIoT technologies that make data available when and where it is most needed, whether that’s onsite or remote. Compared to traditional SCADA-based approaches, IIoT is highly disruptive. Every single core paradigm from SCADA networks that were once widely accepted and adopted are now in question.

Distillation Column Automation Control and Optimization

Distillation Column Automation Control and Optimization

The cold section of an ethylene plant is responsible for cooling and purifying the product-grade ethylene, propylene and other bi-products from the cracking furnaces. Cracked gas is cooled in transfer-line exchangers which produce steam from the effluent gas energy. Gas is further cooled with water in the quench column, scrubbed and dried before being compressed in the cracked gas compressor and fed to the cold box.

Real-Time Adaptive Scheduling in Life Science Manufacturing

Real-Time Adaptive Scheduling in Life Science Manufacturing

At the Biomanufacturing World Summit, Emerson’s Ron Rossbach presented on using digitalization and data integration to help drive operational efficiency. A key enabling technology for these performance gains is in real-time adaptive scheduling. This technology combines finite scheduling with dynamic updates from existing shop-floor execution systems to optimize operations. In 2018 Emerson acquired BioG, the leading provider of adaptive scheduling software, which is now being adopted across the industry.
