The top 5 most read articles online, from April 1-7 for Plant Engineering covered energy monitoring, packaged boilers, maintenance survey findings, NGV trucking, and working with the cloud. Links to each article below.

1. Energy monitor can find electrical failures before they happen

MIT researchers have developed a sensor that can monitor wiring in a building or ship, and signal when repairs are needed.

2. Full steam ahead: Packaged boilers

Packaged boilers focus on safety, efficiency, and modularity.

3. A race against time

Maintenance is valued, but aging equipment puts pressure on plants.

4. NGV trucking outlook on the rise

Increasing fueling opportunities for over-the-road (OTR) trucks and the availability of improved truck technology with larger, more efficient engines make natural gas vehicles a cost-effective, environmentally responsible choice because of lower emissions.

5. Working with the cloud

Using the cloud for data logging and remote access can improve operations, cut costs and simplify interactions.

The list was developed using CFE Media’s web analytics for stories viewed on plantengineering.com, April 1-7, for articles published within the last two months.
