An adage attributed to marketing pioneer John Wanamaker goes like this: “Half of the money I spend on advertising is wasted. The trouble is, I don’t know which half.” Maintenance managers in many process manufacturing facilities may feel something similar.
What is the product that made you stop and ask, “Where have you been all my life?” For me, it’s a tight race between my smartphone and heated car seats. For many companies engaged in operations involving thermal processing, I suspect it will be the advent of cloud-based predictive maintenance and remote process management platforms.
Adding sensors and analytical capabilities can help plants get a handle on early fouling or loss of heat transfer in heat exchangers. Wireless sensors gather data that can be used to improve performance, cut costs and reduce energy consumption.
Aside from simple blending processes, most chemical processes involve a temperature change in one way or another. For example, products may need to be heated to facilitate a reaction, or cooled to control reaction rate. Many of these applications involve using a heat exchanger to add or remove heat from the process fluid.
Emerson added two Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solutions to its Plantweb Insight data analytics platform that will enable industrial facilities to transform the way they manage their enterprise-level wireless network infrastructure. The applications provide a quick-to-implement, scalable IIoT solution to help customers advance their digital transformation strategies and achieve greater operational efficiencies.
The use of optical fiber for temperature sensing is expanding beyond safety applications. Optical sensors are replacing spot sampling in implementations that require accurate heat measurement and control.
According to a recent Honeywell survey of business leaders in India, industrial cybersecurity breaches are damaging organizations by impacting the bottom line and company reputation. The survey polled strategic decision-makers from Indian industrial companies on types of cybersecurity threats, their approach to dealing with them and their organization’s respective preparedness as they adopt Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)-enabled technologies.
Smart process automation and data exchange technologies — more commonly known as Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) — are transforming manufacturing operations, and many companies are looking to capitalize on the benefits.
In 2018, a glass products manufacturing company in Ohio presented its automation engineers with a new project: Data from manufacturing lines needed to appear in a web-based user interface (UI) already in use by company supervisors.
