Case study questions and answers: Seven bakery lines converge in one packaging area that fills 20 cases per minute. Controllers needed replacing and programming, and the network needed updating. System integrators checked and tested code as they went so the project could be completed over a three-day weekend.
Packaging, records, raw materials, were updated and integrated and automated across eight facilities.
Control system migration projects can provide significant value to industrial operations by ensuring a smooth transition to newer technology with virtually no changes to physical wiring or intellectual property.
Cover Story: Wireless transmitters provide process information and increase energy efficiency in facilities.
Think Again application summaries: Machine data integration saves time, predictive maintenance avoids unplanned downtime, and a control room designed for 2020 attracts young engineering prospects, among other benefits.
Think Again automation application example: predictive maintenance avoids unplanned downtime and improves service offerings, among other benefits, for an oil rig equipment provider.
How can new gas flowmeters operate at an oilfield without utility power service in the remote southern Bakken formation region of North Dakota? That was the challenge facing Legacy Reserves at remote sites at the Williston Basin, N.D.
President Obama’s Climate Action Plan has a goal to cut methane emissions from the oil and gas industry by 40% to 45% from 2012 levels by 2025. This has led to new regulations that require widescale pump retrofitting.
A major challenge facing oil and gas facilities is inadequate lighting and the need for workers to climb to elevated heights to repair or replace lights.
Coal seam gas extraction requires heavy monitoring via many sensors placed at the wellhead. To ensure all the data are managed properly, a high-capacity server is needed. This case study explains the challenges of managing data in the extraction process—and how to overcome them.
A compressor failure on a gas pipeline forced a company to switch from preventive maintenance to predictive to provide better service.
