Free e-Book Shares Four Case Studies of Wireless Technology in Chemical Processing

 Chemical industry professionals understand the vital role of instrumentation in providing a view into the process, helping make informed decisions about the operation, and keeping people and property safe. Sometimes, however, having the right instrument for the job is a challenge due to the physical, budgetary or environmental constraints of the plant. That’s when wireless technology shows its greatest advantages.

One of these companies needed to break away from outmoded instruments that required manual reading by operators. Another case placed its operators in both discomfort and risk by having to climb storage tanks in the winter. Another company needed continuous monitoring to reduce the use of resources, while the last required more accurate control to meet escalating regulatory demands. A recent e-book shares the stories of four companies in the chemical industry that implemented wireless instrumentation solutions and achieved gains in productivity, energy efficiency, reliability, and safety. Many of these companies started by incorporating wireless into one area or on one piece of equipment. Later, they expanded their networks by installing devices in more areas of the plant.

Wireless technology offered these chemical processors a practical, economical path to greater process insight and improved operations. By investing in the benefits of wireless, their improvements were more cost effective than traditional wired solutions and caused minimal disruption to existing operations.

Wireless technology allows plants to implement devices one at a time, or in one unit at a time, with each delivering immediate benefits and a quick return on investment. As more solutions are added, information from each can be combined to yield additional insights and further improve operations.
