Moore Industries' SPA2IS programmable alarm trips with built-in intrinsically-safe (IS) field connections monitor, control, and measure signals in hazardous areas have an alarm solution that significantly reduces wiring, installation and maintenance costs.
Mathematical models of process behavior can be used to improve the design and performance of feedback controllers.
Part 3: This series explains the automation pyramid: A framework for process intelligence and improvement. The third level examines information systems and how they are the first step towards a fully connected enterprise.
Part 2: This series explains the automation pyramid: A framework for process intelligence and improvement. The first two levels: process equipment/instrumentation and control systems are explained.
The importance of the cyclone separator is moving from the tried and true technologies to different and specific applications not considered possible even a decade or so ago until 3D printers appeared in a range of industrial applications—from one-off person-specific medical implants to cost effective short run specialized spare parts manufacturing.
Disruptive simulation technologies enabled a large oil pipeline company to maximize profits. Twenty percent savings in capital projects were realized, amounting to $85 million. An additional $24 million in benefit was achieved in additional annual, recurring revenue.
