Top 5 Plant Engineering content over the past week covered reducing oil and gas leaks, mitigating arc flash hazards, plant automation strategies and more. Links to each article below.

1. How to proactively reduce leaks and emissions in oil and gas

Plant managers and engineers in process-focused industries are seeking ways to reduce fugitive emissions to provide a safer work environment and reduce their facilities’ environmental footprint.

2. When and how to mitigate arc flash hazards in medium-voltage electrical systems

Mitigating arc flash hazards in medium-voltage systems could be performed in synergy to achieve optimal system reliability and safety.

3. What are the key benefits and strategies to implementing plant automation?

Plant automation offers many potential benefits, but it requires precise strategies that consider the entire facility to achieve the best possible result.

4. Characteristics and test properties of rotating electrical machine bearing lubricants

Key considerations with greases and oils include their suitability for an application. Knowledge of lubricant characteristics and test properties helps ensure the correct selection for rotating electrical machine bearings.

5. How can plant personnel successfully maintain low-voltage dry type transformers?

Low-voltage dry type transformers (LVDTT) are often forgotten pieces of necessary electrical equipment, however they need regular maintenance.

The list was developed using CFE Media’s web analytics for stories viewed on plantengineering.com, Dec. 4-10, 2023, for articles published within the last two months.
