Enhancing automation to reduce unscheduled shutdowns and slow downs, identify process conditions that cause equipment problems, minimise unanticipated equipment failures and resulting process upsets, improve efficiency, fewer safety incidents, less environmental releases and reduce operations and maintenance savings.
Honeywell is the one company that can bring this type of integration and coordination together from design through the lifecycle of your industrial facility. Read More ›

GCC is establishing a position in China. That is in response to the changing refinery crude cocktail. An inferential package that works during crude switches permits: product property control during switches and throughput maximisation during switches. Read More ›
Application of Advanced Technologies to Enhance Refinery Capability for Processing Opportunity Crudes
Although processing crude of declining quality is a challenge, the risk can be mitigated through the use of a comprehensive study, analysis and treatment of high- risk areas. GE W&PT Technology and Product Application teams have together developed a comprehensive program containing a number of unique and patentable tools that are designed to scientifically monitor and control high temperature corrosion, developed new product for calcium removal and heavy crude oils demulsification. Implementing the program facilitates the processing of opportunity crude oils so that refiners can safely and reliably process opportunity crude oils and enhance their operating margins. Read More ›
A PI Enterprise can reduce O&G value chain friction elements, reduce total cost of ownership, enable management of the tension between enterprise standardisation and site autonomy/ownership/ accountability, support strategic replacement of legacy applications and enable a organisational change “plug and play” capability.

Used existing measurements to show when the process was not on, to add robustness to the technique. Acoustic measurements taken at scanning intervals may have resulted in missing leak indications. Need to investigate characteristics of acoustic emission to determine if it may increase robustness. Supporting evidence for acoustic could be 10 minutes old when temp indication is met, causing us to buffer acoustic voltage. Need more than one application/beta site to learn from. Read More ›
