Today’s tougher and tougher market environment and instability drive plants to increase its availability by reducing to minimum the planned turnarounds and cutting maintenance costs.

With as much as 43% of the unplanned downtime caused by equipment failures, getting a reliable solution into the critical severe service final control applications can be the difference between operate profitably or not.
Furthermore, being Reliable not only means being available to operate 24/7 but also reduce risk and mitigate unplanned shutdowns and of course maximize asset operation and performance to increase plant profitability.
Let’s walk through some of the main critical severe service applications in Refining and Petrochem Industry to understand the way we can help to solve problems.

Attendees will get hands on experience of different proof test methods on a range of level instruments used for overfill prevention.
At the end of this course you will be able to comfortably select dP flow solutions in application areas where you did not considered it before. Clearly this course will go into details on performance trade-offs due to missing straight lengths, or further optimization of dP flow measuring points deploying calculations in either flow computers and transmitters.  In addition this course will allow you to further comprehend the effects of changing fluid properties and incorrect installation or sizing.

This training will chart the technology developments, including strengths and weaknesses of flame and gas detection over the years.  The attendee needs no prior knowledge and they will leave able to select the most appropriate technology for a wide range of applications and risks.

Many users have installed Wireless over the last 10 years and more and more users feel very comfortable deploying this technology themselves. However more often than once requests come in how to test the stability/health of the mesh. Do I need to maintain or keep track of anything while operating a Wireless infrastructure. This course will guide the students through the design, commissioning and maintenance of the Wireless infrastructure on your site and it will allow you to comfortably capture the opportunities Wireless technology provide to your operations.
