A University of Arizona publication, A Brief History of RFID, traces the history of radio-frequency identification technology back to a Russian physicist in the 1940s and commercial applications began to appear in the 1960s. By the 1980s and 1990s the technology...
Let's end the week with a quick 3:21 YouTube video, Mobile Service Centers. These are part of valve, actuator & regulator lifecycle services available from Emerson. The mobile service centers bring certified repair and onsite service capabilities for small and...
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...
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...
An ethylene plant has a number of very large, very critical compressors which will cause the entire plant to shutdown if they ever trip. The cracked gas compressor increases the entire cold-side feed from around 3 psig to ~475 psig, typically through 5 stages. The two refrigeration compressors are the next biggest compressors that can also shut down the entire plant if they trip.
