A Chemical Producer’s Guide to DCS Migrations Part 1: Planning

FREE

VIEW ON DEMAND

This webinar will explore best-in-class approaches to DCS migrations in the chemical industry. It will focus on how to begin a successful DCS migration by addressing the justification and defining scope to gain insights into cost, schedule and impact on operations. As part of the discussion, MAVERICK Technologies and Rockwell Automation will share examples of how they help customers be innovative when migrating their DCS to help enable data-driven operations. Don't simply replicate decades-old technologies - innovate.

How To Tackle Common Powder Flow Issues

FREE

VIEW ON DEMAND

More than 70% of all products contain ingredients that are handled in bulk solid form at some point during the production process.  While bulk solid and powder handling is extremely common in industry, even some of the most basic fundamentals of material handling remain poorly-understood – largely because our education generally only focuses on handling liquids and gases, while bulk solids handling is usually left out. This lack of understanding often leads to numerous problems that can significantly delay project startup, bottleneck production, increase labor requirements, impact product quality, and potentially create unsafe working conditions. This presentation will focus on some of the most common material handling problems – e.g., flow stoppages/plugging, erratic flow, material non-uniformity, etc. – and will discuss proven and practical scientific approaches for solving them.

Reduce the human error impact on your Safety Instrumented System (SIS) with embedded Safety Lifecycle Tools

FREE

VIEW ON DEMAND

Many operating process facilities work around highly hazardous chemicals and are faced with having to manage their process risks using sophisticated programmable safety instrumented system (SIS).  As one might expect, employing the use of such technology opens up plenty of opportunity for human error such as; incorrectly specifying the wrong technology, level of redundancy needed, as well as properly managing the entire system after installation. 

Over the past several years, national and international standards that were focused on the implementation of SIS’s moved towards performance oriented, rather than prescriptive. This simply meant, that these standards didn’t mandate the type of technology, level of redundancy, or maintenance test intervals, etc., instead they described what must be done to manage your process risks to tolerable levels.  This was in line with OSHA’s national legislation for the U.S. (29 CFR 1910.119) on process safety management (PSM), which states that users must ‘determine and document’ that their facilities are designed and operating in a safe manner.

Introduction to 2-wire Coriolis Technology

FREE

VIEW ON DEMAND

Chemical plants and refineries around the world are dealing with unreliable legacy 2-wire flow points and are looking for an upgrade migration path to a more accurate and reliable measurement. Traditionally, Coriolis meters have not been considered part of the 2-wire upgrade option, but Emerson’s recent release of the Micro Motion 4200 2-wire Coriolis transmitter that is now a possibility. 

The 2-wire Coriolis flow meter improves reliability by providing an accurate mass flow and density measurement. It accommodates change by replacing unreliable legacy 2-wire devices and optimizing production, ensuring safety by producing accurate fills, resulting in less exposure or spills due to overfilling. Upgrading to 2-wire Coriolis also reduces cost because of reduced need for engineering and planning time. 

Building a Digital Twin for the Process Industry

FREE

VIEW ON DEMAND

Owners need easy access to accurate, up to date, engineering information and they need tools that make it simple to keep that engineering data up-to-date over the lifecycle of the plant, reflecting changes due to routine maintenance, turnaround or large-scale revamp projects. It takes too much time and effort to gather and verify the information they need to make decisions effectively, and for older plants that do not have 3D models, there is simply no visual way to verify and check information easily.

Digitalization: 5 key enablers that will drive the chemical plant of the future

FREE

VIEW ON DEMAND

The timing and scale of disruptive impact of digitalization on the chemical industry is difficult to predict; however, significant competitive advantage will fall to chemical companies who are able to develop an end-to-end digitalized ecosystem. Whether you are designing new, intelligent facilities or leveraging digital technologies to optimize existing, many opportunities exist with technology already available today. Join us as we highlight 5 key areas that need to be considered throughout the planning & design, building and operating phases of a chemical plant of the future.

Solving the Complexity of Selecting, Sizing and Troubleshooting Rupture Disks

FREE

VIEW ON DEMAND

Rupture disks are safety systems and should be able to operate independently and reliably under all circumstances. In some instances, this doesn’t occur and the protection of employees and equipment are in danger. 

Learn the key areas of troubleshooting rupture disk performance; how to correctly select the right disk for your application and how to properly size a rupture disk.

PTA production: Lowering OPEX without compromising on quality

A paper that looks at how the earlier PTA production method involving a multi-stage process with pressure and atmospheric centrifuges and a re-slurry tank can be replaced with one stand-alone device – the rotary pressure filter (RPF).
