The International Society of Automation (ISA) is growing nice online communities in their members-only ISAConnect section of the website. One of the active groups, Chemical and Petroleum Industries Division (ChemPID), is led by Emerson’s David Lee.
More and more frequently, chemical plants are adapting new recommendations and incorporating newer processes to meet the highest safety guidelines prescribed across industries. Faced with many harsh conditions at a typical site, companies are turning to automation and upgrading their activities to simplify manual operations with more sophisticated equipment, driving greater production efficiency and safety management practices.
Recent world events—from the expansion of remote access in response to COVID restrictions to high-profile industrial cyberattacks—have put a renewed focus on cybersecurity. While cybersecurity needs vary from organization to organization, there are common, critical...
Deliver better control, reliability, and safety in today’s demanding steam operations with Rosemount 8800™ MultiVariable Vortex Flow Meter
Vortex flow measurement is uniquely adaptive when it comes to handling difficult applications. By virtue of its science, utilizing the von Kármán effect, these instruments are accurate across a wide operating range and effective at withstanding high process pressures...
Operators are the heart of any process. Experience, skill, and attentiveness give the best operators an intuitive feel for processes that helps ensure uptime, safety, repeatability, and quality—even in the most infrequent process situations. But with a major shortage...
Industries that have traditionally operated in a tight margin environment, like Chlor-Alkali plants, have started recognizing the value of additional digital sensors and more sophisticated monitoring of electrolyzers and other critical equipment.
