Automation system integration can be challenging. Many organizations need powerful standalone control, but also need to leverage easy integration into a control system. Emerson has developed simple strategies for improving integration. Download Emerson's Modular Automation eBook to see how organizations across industries are using flexible technologies to connect plant systems — accelerating speed to market through faster projects and more integrated operations.
An energy transition is occurring where natural gas, biogas, liquid natural gas and hydrogen play an increasing role as we aim to reach net-zero carbon dioxide goals set by policy makers globally. As energy sources and gas mixtures change, the infrastructure to store and transport gas remains critically important. A changing mix of molecules and pipeline infrastructure, coupled with advancement in process automation, will further drive the need for online gas analysis for safety, process control and gas quality into the future. Learn more about technologies equipped for the energy transition.
Hydrogen is a difficult-to-contain, small-molecule gas that must be stored at high pressures to achieve energy density required for use in fuel cell vehicles and infrastructure. This paper will cover attributes required of fittings used in these systems, including gas seal tightness, tube grip strength, vibration resistance, and material integrity.
Optical gas imaging (OGI) cameras can help you detect industrial gases quickly, accurately, and safely - without shutting down systems. OGI cameras can scan and survey areas that are hard to reach with traditional measurement tools. OGI cameras can also detect leaks from a safe distance, displaying these invisible gases as clouds of smoke.
"Near-zero" emission control of plant pollutants is achievable through innovative technologies. But is the petrochemical industry ready to commit and pursue long-term, environmentally oriented and sustainable policies? A white paper series analyzes the dilemma challenging petrochemical companies in the decision-making for economic growth and sustainability goals. The series investigates the environmental performance quandary from three perspectives: government regulatory agencies, petrochemical operating companies, and environmental controls system technology providers. Specifically, this white paper addresses the challenges faced by operating companies to forge a road map to balancing profitability, environmental performance and sustainability.
The downstream markets in Europe and Asia have stark differences. Europe—especially Western Europe—has a mature refining and petrochemical production network. Many plants were constructed dozens of years ago. However, the region is making concerted efforts to boost sustainability, including mandating clean-fuels production and increasing energy efficiency, while mitigating plant emissions and waste.
The region is building additional production capacity, but project numbers vary significantly between Western Europe and Eastern Europe, Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). This whitepaper details major downstream oil and gas initiatives in Europe, along with capital expenditures in downstream project construction.
