Control & Safety

Is your legacy control system still reliable?

Do your operators have so many alarms that they basically ignore them?

How do you know if they missed an important alarm? Could that missed alarm result in lost product or quality, a preventable shutdown or worse yet a safety problem?

Valves & Equipment

Are oversized valves costing you more to operate and maintain? Even if a valve looks ok, if it is oversized:

  • Energy costs are higher
  • Control is difficult to impossible
  • Maintenance costs are higher

Is your budget tight but you need to automate a few existing critical valves?

Reliability

Is your unscheduled downtime less than 3%?  Is your maintenance cost less than 2% of asset replacement value (ARV)?

That is what it takes to be a top performer.

You could be spending 3 to 3 ½ times more if you are not a top performer.

Reliability is not a “maintenance” issue. It’s a “business” issue.

    During the project upgrade of the Westinghouse WPDF system to Emerson’s DeltaV system, we discovered the older safety barriers were not compatible with the new DeltaV system. The cost and installation to replace the old barriers was going to be expensive and hard to maintain after we left. We needed a different approach.[read more]

    When nuisance alarms are sounding constantly, most operators will elect to ignore all alarms. They usually just turn off the sound rather than trying to interpret an endless sequence of nuisance alarms where only one in a thousand is beneficial.[read more]
