  • Benefits of Having Control in the Field

    In this video, Chuck Carter with Lee College shows off the benefits of having Control in the Field. He demonstrates how control is maintained in the system despite a complete loss of the host system. Adjustments are made to demonstrate control is still being maintained in the system. He also talks about how control within a device itself has been shown to improve set point response for tighter control. Tighter control means higher quality product and ultimately dollars to an end user.

  • Back to Basics: Managing Alarms

    Editor in chief Walt Boyes talks about effective alarm management processes. Over the past 50 years many process industry disasters could have been avoided if only the proper alarm systems had been in place. The switch of alarm management systems from panel walls to display screens and DCSs resulted in system operators' loss of visual pattern recognition. This switch caused the newer generations of alarm operators to develop tunnel vision. Meanwhile lack of careful alarm rationalization causes them to be inundated with too many alarms, making it impossible to respond to the important ones. Watch this 5-minute video and learn how to design an alarm system that contributes to your plant's "inherently safe" lifestyle.

  • Back to Basics: Flow Measurement (Coriolis)

    Editor-in-chief Walt Boyes talks about the Coriolis mass flowmeter and how these have changed over time. The earliest flowmeters were volumetric in nature. They measured the volume of the liquid or the gas flowing inside them, but if the temperature, density, or viscosity changed, the flow reading would be less accurate. Watch this video report to learn how Coriolis flowmeters have changed over time.
