The Process Online Resource Library contains white papers, eBooks, webcasts, videos and technical papers to help you manage and solve work related problems. Select from a variety of application and technology related subjects, supplied by market-leading vendors or written by our editorial team.
In today’s complex and continuous process plant environments, liquid pumps are often overworked and underprotected. Poor operating conditions can reduce pump performance, require extra maintenance, shorten pumps’ lives and increase operating costs.
Maximising the potential of the Industrial Internet of Things hinges on how well you control the complex interfaces among your industrial assets. A new generation of IIoT-ready process automation controllers now equips control engineers to become real-time business decision-makers who can add millions to operational profitability.
Industrial organisations are investing in digital infrastructure with high expectations of payback. Making the right automation choices can help fulfil those expectations — by releasing new sources of value that may be hidden or constrained by inadequately connected assets.
Alarm systems are an essential aspect of any plant. Managing your system effectively can yield significant operational improvements and optimise plant safety. Alarm management is not just a project with a start and end date; it's a continuous cycle.
Temperature measurement is a critical factor in determining process efficiency and product quality. Traditionally, measuring temperature in these conditions has been fraught with difficulty.
Control system performance can have a huge impact on return investment throughout the life cycle of a plant. A successful modernisation program can help reduce your TCO, increase production rates, manage risks and extend both system life and performance.
Lithium-ion battery systems for UPS applications are beginning to offer compelling benefits. While some Li-ion solution prices are too high to justify switching from VRLA, there are some that present a favourable 10-year TCO with payback in less than 4 years.
Pressure gauges provide the visibility into your industrial plant process and equipment to help drive peak performance and ensure safe operations. New technologies are transforming the traditional gauge by including digital electronics, new pressure sensing technology and reduced mechanical components.
Today’s rapidly changing economy creates both opportunities and risks for almost every business. Your business’ growth potential will largely depend on managing this change effectively.
Australia is the only IEA member among 29 developed countries not meeting their fuel reserve membership obligations (storage reserves must equal at least 90 days’ worth of consumption).
Power that is free of interruption or disturbance is essential for the modern business. A problematic supply of power is a key cause of equipment failures, downtime and software/data corruption.
Tank blanketing maintains a blanket of gas in the vapour space above the liquid in a closed storage tank. Proven results include improved product quality, better process safety, optimised process efficiency and significant cost savings.
Executing big-dollar projects on budget and on time is becoming increasingly challenging. The consequences of not meeting these challenges has never been greater — costs of overruns and lost revenue can exceed the project cost tenfold.
Corroded steam boilers regularly lead to large profit losses in the production process. Inefficient system productivity, unplanned downtime, intensive maintenance and a shorter life cycle all eat away at your potential revenue.
With the manufacturing world on the cusp of Industry 4.0, businesses face being left behind if not fully prepared. Pre-planning strategies now can position you in the fast lane ready to overtake the others who have left it too late.
