Plant Engineering will be covering the following topics in print in the October issue:

SOLUTIONS: Cover Story: Our annual Safety issue

Plant Engineering's October issue takes a look at plant safety from several aspects. Among the topics we'll cover:

  • Electrical safety: A look at the new NFPA 70E standards and how they will impact plant training and operations.
  • Operational safety: The commitment of one manufacturer to improving safety within the plant started with a sobering look at just how safe their plant was.
  • Environmental safety: Welding is still a vital part of many operations, and keeping an eye on issues such as weld fume emissions impacts not just the welders, but all nearby workers.
  • Behavioral safety: How proper training lays the foundation for all plant safety programs.

Modeling your warehouse: The improvements in 3-D modeling techniques are used for operational modeling, but also can be used to put your material handling and warehouse in efficient working order.

IIoT and maintenance—a well-oiled machine? By getting your operations and IT teams together on issues such as an IIoT-based lubrication program, you can create a working relationship between the two teams that will extend to other projects.

INNOVATIONS: Advantages of wireless tank level monitoring
Properly monitoring and managing tank level can help owners and asset managers improve efficiencies and increase productivity and profitability. The combination of wireless connectivity with wirelessly-enabled ultrasonic sensors is proving to be an effective and increasingly popular method for tank level monitoring.
