Mobile-friendly, cloud-based Miura Connect allows industrial boiler users to perform real-time remote monitoring. Designed as a “living application,” the IIoT technology will allow Miura to continue optimizing and adding features.
Power is nothing without control. You can have the best, most technically advanced burner. If the burner is not properly controlled, and the heat is not applied appropriately during the production process, the result will be disappointing — or worse.
Did we really once think leather-padded wine-barrel furniture was the height of luxury, a prize to be coveted? Or gold- or silver-plated tea services, enormous brass beds and even more enormous home appliances with outsized analog controls? And Johnny Olson describes “A new car!” with fabulous options like an AM/FM radio, tinted windows and power brakes on every episode.
The process manufacturing industry faces myriad challenges. In the last year, the COVID-19 pandemic has overlaid upon these existing challenges. One of the ways in which organizations can tackle such difficulties is by optimizing process data management.
With rising operational costs and fewer domain experts due to the retiring workforce, manufacturers with thermal processing units need to increase productivity, eliminate safety risks and reduce operating expenses.
Rapid growth and innovation in the past decade have enabled companies to implement key technologies to monitor, analyze, control and automate their assets. Wireless resistance temperature detectors, or wireless RTDs, have bridged the gap from decades of hardware to remotely connected devices.
Regenerative thermal oxidizers (RTO) came on the scene some 35 years ago and, for the past two decades, have been the “technology of choice” for industrial VOC control. With many incremental improvements, regenerative thermal oxidizers do not risk losing this status any time soon.
Without the need to perform local monitoring, technicians with access to cloud-based remote-monitoring tools can proactively troubleshoot the problems that lead to process disruptions, unplanned downtime and lost profits.
As manufacturing facilities increasingly move to automation and advanced manufacturing practices, there is less slack in the system for failures and unplanned downtime. Factories must be ready to operate whenever production requires.
