Improve Plant Reliability, Efficiency, and Reduce Energy/Maintenance Costs with Flow Analysis Software
How much operational down time did your plant have in the last 5 years due to expensive system repairs caused by various operational problems? What was the maintenance cost for equipment repair after repair? How much did it cost to operate the system when it was running? Is there a solution available that can help minimize downtime, reduce repair/maintenance/energy costs, and increase profitability?
These are questions that all plant owners and operators should be asking themselves because operational problems may happen frequently. The good news is that there are tremendous opportunities available to solve these issues and dramatically improve the bottom-line profitability of plant operation!
Come and learn how one particular chemical plant gained a dramatic increase in reliability and efficiency after dealing with 5 years of expensive repairs costing over $1.23 million.
Interlocking to Drive Usability
Interlocking has evolved from physical relays and contacts to a software implementation of relays and contacts. Because software implementations are cheaper and easier to implement and to change, this can have the unintended consequence of creating complex interlocking schemas that are difficult to identify why a piece of equipment will not start.
This presentation will look at the engineering of interlocks as well as the operational strategies to give operators and technicians the tools necessary to quickly and effectively identify why a piece of equipment will not start or why it tripped offline.
How Digital Sample Systems Improve Efficiency and Reduce Costs in Chemical Plants
In this webinar, learn how digital sample systems enable you to leverage the three pillars of a successful digital program – data, analysis, and tools – so you can increase operational effectiveness, optimize asset availability, get the most out of limited human resources and cut costs. You’ll discover how connected digital sample systems technologies differ from traditional sample systems and why digital connectivity supports more cost-effective predictive maintenance practices. Plus, for a real-world perspective, LyondellBasell will share insights into what prompted them to implement a digital sampling system in several/one of their processing plants and how this new technology has impacted its operations.
Electrolysis Hydrogen Will Revolutionize Hydrogen Availability and Benefits
Green hydrogen, made economically using abundant, cost-effective renewable energy, is creating new chemical synthesis opportunities – fuels, intermediates, and polymers. As hydrogen storage continues to be a challenge, the ability to flexibly create storable products from hydrogen enables more effective use of hydrogen made from renewables. This webinar will introduce and discuss the challenges and opportunities created.
A Chemical Producer’s Guide to DCS Migrations Part 2: Implementation
This webinar will explore best-in-class approaches to DCS migrations in the chemical industry. The presenters will discuss areas of high risk around cost, scope-creep and schedule overruns; they'll also explore ways to mitigate risks during project execution. Better understand how to successfully implement your DCS migration project.
A Chemical Producer’s Guide to DCS Migrations Part 1: Planning
FREEVIEW 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
FREEVIEW 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
FREEVIEW 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
FREEVIEW 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
FREEVIEW 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.
