Process knowledge system
Honeywell has released an enhanced version of its Experion process knowledge system that allows plant operators to carefully coordinate process control, safety shutdown and fire and gas mitigation steps. In addition to the safety instrumented system (SIS) integration, Experion helps improve plant operations through embedded simulation capabilities used for comprehensive operator training and control, display and procedure validation and a new integrated batch functionality.
Through integration with the company’s Safety Manager platform, Experion provides crucial safety and fire and gas information, such as pre-shutdown alerts, directly to operators using a common display. This allows Experion to provide operators with plant-wide SIS point data, diagnostics and system information, as well as alarms and events, operator displays and sequence-of-event information. It also reduces overall system and maintenance costs by reducing the amount of installed field sensor equipment.
Experion can also help increase production capacity through the new Experion Batch Manager. The system’s embedded batch functionality allows chemical and life sciences customers to execute batches at the control level, versus using a separate server. This makes the system more reliable, less complex and easier to maintain.
Additionally, Experion features embedded integration capability with Honeywell’s UniSim simulation tool and can be used to train operators on processes before they are implemented in a plant. This approach can help prepare operators for normal and abnormal operations and improves plant reliability by reducing operator errors. Experion’s simulation capability also provides significant engineering efficiency by testing control strategies, displays and procedures before applying them on live processes.
