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 […]

Process manufacturers with hazardous areas in their process are responsible for the safety of the process through the IEC 61511 safety lifecycle—from initial design through decommissioning. Flame monitoring is often an important component in risk mitigation. Emerson’s Jonathan Saint wrote a Petroleum Review article, Minimising false alarms, to address this major challenge with flame detection […]

Furnaces, fired heaters, boilers and other process units requiring burners to manage are common across many process industries such as refining, chemicals, petrochemicals, and power. Recognizing and reacting to flame instability is critical since a flameout condition is dangerous and often results in a costly shutdown initiated by the burner management system. Emerson’s John Miller, […]
