Refineries are not the first to jump on new technology trends given their need for stable and predictable operations for such a complex process. But as technology continues to advance, scalable ways to try, prove and grow solutions that create value are possible. In a...
Certifying Coriolis Meter Accuracy
While the Emerson Exchange 365 global user community has a very vibrant forum for DeltaV distributed control system (DCS) users, there is also some great knowledge sharing happening in many of the other areas such as the Measurement Instrumentation, Valves, Actuators...
Improving Performance with Flowmeter Diagnostics
What is the perfect flowmeter? Emerson's Tonya Wyatt references an earlier Flow Control magazine article, to open her article, Flowmeter Diagnostics Optimize Production in Process Plants. It: …never drifts or wears. It never needs zeroing. It measures in mass units....
Multipoint Piecewise Linearization for Coriolis Flow Meters
Yesterday, we looked at calibration of Coriolis mass flow meters in natural gas applications and mentioned piecewise linearization (PWL), but did not delve into it. Let's do with today's post. I found a presentation by Emerson's Tonya Wyatt, Fine Tuning Coriolis Flow...
Optimizing Safety Instrumented System Proof Testing
If you are new to the world of process safety, you quickly learn that it has its own jargon with phrases such as safety instrumented functions, proof test intervals, PDFavg, etc. A Flow Control magazine article, Ensuring safety compliance with optimized proof testing,...
Improve Safety Proof Test Capabilities with Intelligent Instrumentation
At the Emerson Exchange conference in Austin, Emerson's Afton Coleman, Erik Mathiason and Tonya Wyatt presented, Improve Safety Proof Test Capabilities with Intelligent Instrumentation. Their abstract: Safety Instrumented Systems are designed to be the most critical...
