  • The Asset Management and Sustainability Connection

    "Sustainability" may be the Buzz Word of the Year. But it turns out that it also has great potential to be a real money saver for your operation, especially if you focus on the energy potential savings that accrue from using asset management and maintenance best practices. In this podcast, Ralph Rio, Research Director, Enterprise Software, at ARC Advisory Group, talks with Nancy Bartels, Control's managing editor, about the sustainability/enterprise asset management (EAM) connection and how it can impact both your operations and your maintenance departments -- and your bottom line.

  • Design Tools Help Water/Wastewater Equipment Manufacturer Enhance Machine Performance and Reduce Engineering Costs

    Since 1978, Meurer Research Inc. in Golden, Colo., has researched, developed and manufactured water and wastewater treatment systems used by municipalities around the world. Among MRI's most successful products are plate settlers, which are used in water and wastewater treatment plants as a method of pretreatment before the water enters the membrane filtration system. By separating and removing heavy solids that can clog filters, the plate settlers help extend membrane life, minimize cleaning requirements and reduce operating costs. To help ensure these systems deliver maximum reliability, MRI sought to redesign and upgrade the control equipment on one of its 10 pilot units. The control system previously employed on the pilot unit included a mix of control products from multiple vendors, which hindered interoperability and limited connectivity between all of the automation equipment on a given machine. MRI worked with Rockwell Automation to ease the integration of components by working with a single-source supplier that could provide a control system easily integrated as a unified and more reliable system. In addition to improving reliability, performance and ease of use, MRI also wanted to equip the system with remote-monitoring capabilities. This would allow MRI to evaluate system performance and troubleshoot problems without traveling to the test site.

  • How Chemical Facilities' Anti-Terrorism Standards Impact Your Plant

    The chemical facilities' anti-terrorism standards establish risk-based performance requirements and compel any facility manufacturing, housing or distributing specified chemicals to complete a screening assessment. The assessment must determine level of risk, identify security vulnerabilities and address these vulnerabilities. Listen in as Control editor Dan Hebert and Apprion vice president of marketing and customer services Stephen Lambright discuss this hot topic.

  • 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.
