Marcio Donnangelo and Marcelo Dultra presented on continuous pressure relief valve (PRV) and rupture disk (RD) monitoring for releases and leaks at the 4C Health, Safety & Environmental conference. Marcelo described a PRV. They are mechanical devices, disconnected from the control system that operate when a set pressure is exceeded. They should never operate in […]

Asset condition monitoring versus performance monitoring—what’s the difference? And, analyzing and forming decisions on the data from this monitoring—should it be done within the company or in the cloud? These questions are the subject of a Control Engineering magazine article, Should assets be monitored in-house or in the cloud? Emerson’s Brian Joe opens the article […]

Wireless sensors, as a part of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) set of technologies, are finding new applications due to their ease of installation and commissioning. Many of these applications fall outside of the traditional monitoring and control applications managed by the industrial control systems in the manufacturing or production facility. These applications can […]

Pressure relief valves (PRVs) are critical safety and equipment protection devices to prevent overpressure conditions. They need ongoing maintenance to assure that they operate as designed for their intended applications. In a Valve magazine article, Lifecycle Management of Pressure Relief Valves, Emerson’s Kevin Simmons and Marcelo Dultra describe considerations for effective and efficient PRV sizing, […]

In an earlier post, Creating Pressure Relief Valve Fugitive Emissions Testing, we described the advancement of this effect to create standards in this area. I joined Emerson’s Dr. Amr Gado and Calvin Deng as they presented this work in an Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) technical track, Striving Toward Safety Excellence in Offshore and Subsea Environments.
