Emerson’s Alan Johnston shares how technology advances in real-time modeling, adaptive scheduling and predictive maintenance are enabling successes in optimization for biopharmaceutical manufacturers who may have a combination of both types of processes in their operations.
Stacey Higginbotham’s Stacey on IoT site had a live event last week, How to make machine learning at the edge work. In one of the sessions, Which Edge and Why?, Emerson’s Peter Zornio joined a panel hosted by Stacey along with John Deere’s Julian Sanchez and Tufts University’s Karen Panetta to discuss the benefits and challenges in this information architecture.
Dennis Belanger opens the article, Unlock the rich data in your refinery to achieve Top Quartile performance, in the Refiner’s Guide to Digital Transformation and Top Quartile Performance with how big data helps drive increased productivity, lowered maintenance costs and energy usage, reduced downtime, and lower safety and environmental incidents.
In a Forbes article, When Digital Transformation Is The Only Way, Emerson Automation Solutions’ Chief Technology Officer Peter Zornio describes ways manufacturers and producers are undergoing these transformations.
In a Processing article, Monitoring pressure relief valves as part of a digital ecosystem reduces cost and improves performance, Emerson’s Marcio Donnangelo and Marcelo Dultra describe how continuous monitoring “can identify when pressure incidents happen while monitoring valve conditions to simplify maintenance programs.”
In a Power magazine article, New Monitoring and Analytics Tools Improve Plant Performance, Emerson’s Brian Joe and Juan Panama describe how Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies help electrical generating plants increase reliability and overall efficiency.
At the 2019 Asian Downstream Summit in a PTQ / DigitalRefining publication, Emerson’s Jonas Berge offered his thoughts in an article, How digitalisation is transforming downstream operations. He opened highlighting some of the challenges for refiners, chemical & petrochemical producers.
Steam traps are automatic valves that require ongoing maintenance. Failed steam traps represent a source of energy waste, resulting in poor steam quality as well as increased fuel consumption and emissions. Continuous monitoring can address these issues.
In an earlier post, How Digital Transformation Can Impact Compliance for Environmental and Safety Regulation, I shared some safety examples. Emerson's Marcio Donnangelo explored specific examples more deeply in his 2020 4C HSE conference presentation, Safety Showers...
Imagine you have been tweaking and tuning one of your control loops and have the perfect PID [proportional-integral-derivative] settings. Everything is working great for several months until it isn't. Chances are that it's the part of that loop doing all the manual...
Pumps do the heavy lifting of moving liquids through the production process. They consume more energy more than most types of plant assets and are subject to quite a bit of wear and tear. Online continuous monitoring enables operational performance improvements in...
Emerson’s Manasi Menon joins Jim Cahill in this 23-minute operational analytics podcast to discuss how organizations are putting these analytics into action to help improve performance in safety, reliability, energy & emissions, and production.
