Levels of intermittent, renewable sources of energy for the electrical grids around the globe continue to grow. Power plants designed for more consistent, base load operation are under greater stress. In this recorded Power magazine webcast, Optimizing Level Control for Maximum Reliability and Efficiency in Combined Cycle and Coal Plants, Emerson’s Matthew Brummer joins moderator […]

Let’s start the week with a nice “how-to” video, How to Configure the Rosemount 3051S Plugged Impulse Line Diagnostic. Emerson’s Megan Wiens shows how to configure the Rosemount 3051S Plugged Impulse Line Diagnostic to help prevent this plugging condition which can lead to reduced measurement accuracy, plant efficiency, and product quality. Megan opens the video […]

Thermowells are traditionally a circular cylinder installed into the piping to protect the temperature sensors from the flow. From an Emerson whitepaper, Thermowell Calculations: As a process fluid passes around the thermowell, low pressure vortices are created on the downstream side in laminar, turbulent, and transitional flow. The combination of stresses, generated by the static […]

Many applications including emissions monitoring, ethylene purity, ammonia slip, hydrocarbon gas composition, and more require the measurement of the concentration of various components in a gas mixture. One technology used to perform this measurement is tunable diode lasers and laser absorption spectrometry (TDLAS). This fast, high resolution detects and identifies a range of molecules in […]
