Given the costs associated with wired plant instrumentation and wiring infrastructure, most plants have just enough sensors and final control elements to perform basic control and safety system functions. While enough for control and process safety, it is often not enough for reliability, energy efficiency, and uptime. The Industrial Internet of Things, and more specifically, […]

Many of the pumps in process manufacturing and production processes are essential and their failure results in reduced or lost production and increased maintenance costs. In an Upstream Pumping article, Wireless Monitoring Reduces Pump Failures & Maintenance Costs, Emerson’s Brian Atkinson describes way to make use of technology to avoid these failures. He opens citing […]

Unless you are lucky enough to have a process that flows downhill, you likely have pumps moving liquids through the process. And if these liquids come in large volumes such as hydrocarbon movement and storage facilities, these pumps can be very large and dangerous should failures occur. In a World Pipelines article, Flow management starts […]

A U.S. Department of Energy study on pump life cycle costs notes that maintenance and energy costs make up the vast majority of lifecycle costs. Pumps that are critical to the operation of the process typically are installed with online condition-based monitoring (CBM) systems to help prevent failures and provide early warning to allow repairs […]

Even non-critical pumps in your process can cause spills, vapor clouds, fires and worse. Most of these failure incidents provide warning well in time to solve the problem—if feedback mechanisms are in place for your operators and maintenance personnel. In tce, the online magazine of the Institution of Chemical Engineers, Emerson’s Cranford Johnstone authored an […]
