    Blog: Digital Transformation of the Gas Value Chain

    As liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant come online across the globe, the fundamental nature of the gas market is changing with supply finding demand and pricing variability decreasing. The October 25-27 Gas Asia Summit , as part of the Singapore International Energy Week (SIEW), brings together business leaders and technical experts in the natural gas and LNG industries to discuss trends, innovations and collaboration opportunities...

    Blog: Improving Petrochemical Plant Operational Performance

    Top performing petrochemical producers operate safely and securely, reliably, use energy efficiently, and achieve operational efficiently. The difference between top and average performance can be and has been measured across these four areas. In fact, it is estimated that across the global industrial sector, annually as much as $1 trillion is lost as a result of subpar performance. I connected with Emerson’s...

    Blog: Monitoring Your Medium Voltage Switchgear

    When I worked in the offshore oil & gas business many years ago, production platforms typically had low-voltage electrical systems running motors no larger than 480VAC. Over the years as the process sophistication grew and motors with variable speed drives replaced engine-driven compressors and other assets, the need for medium voltage systems (between 1KV and 35KV) grew. For most other industries with access to an...

    Blog: When you need to know more...

    One of our midstream energy customers in Colorado recently upgraded their Rosemount 2120 level switches to the brand new wired HART Rosemount 2140 level detector. Frustrated by the lack of information they were getting back from the level switches due to a lack of remote diagnostics functionality, the company wanted a smart device that would not just send an alarm in the event of an overfill, but would also alert in advance...

    Blog: Proof Testing Level Measurement Devices

    Safety instrumented systems (SIS) include the sensor(s), final control element(s) and logic solver(s) for each of the safety instrumented functions (SIFs) in the SIS. To verify the SIFs are performing the amount of risk reduction intended for their application, they must be periodically proof tested. PCN Europe magazine interviewed Emerson’s Teddy Tzegazeab on how proof testing has changed for SIFs with liquid...

    Blog: Continuous Emissions Monitoring for Energy Optimization

    For process manufacturers, the energy bill can up to 40-60% of the total operating budget. One way to optimize the energy expended is with Continuous Emissions Monitoring Systems (CEMS) . Many people think of CEMS as something used for emissions regulatory reporting to help ensure certification and compliance with local and international regulatory agencies. But these systems can also be used in helping to increase...

    Blog: Moving Beyond Local Pressure Gauge Readings

    Walk around most any industrial process manufacturing or production process and you’ll likely see pressure gauges providing feedback to operators who walk by. According to the Pressure Gauge entry in Encyclopedia.com , this technology: …was invented by French industrialist Eugene Bourdon in 1849. It utilizes a curved tube design as the pressure sensing element. A less common pressure element design is the diaphragm...
