This Flow short course is for attendees who need to improve their project certainty with a proper and accurate selection of the right flow technology, even at the initial stages of a project when only few process data are available. After an intial theoretical lesson of 1 hours, the attendees will go deep on extensive hands-on exercises, with the use of digital tools, and will learn selecting the proper technology for different levels of application. Further sizing and fully configuration of the meters in an online engineering space will help users to use the online tool in their next projects. A lesson on the possibility of evaluation of ROI through a dedicated digital tools will also help companies reducing project risks and improve project certainty.

This Flow short course is for attendees who, through an intial 1 hour theoretical approach and 3 hours hands-on exercises on Flow meters, will learn how IIoT powered solutions for diagnostics and predictive maintenance dramatically improve plant operation efficiency, and will understand how to reach top quartile performances by using data from Intelligent Flowmeters. Together with the series of hands-on exercises, Flow Lifecycle Services are introduced to empower plant management and technicians with a deterministic approach on maintenance activities.

The course highlights the key areas that should be considered at all stages, involved with a measurement system, in order to improve the return on investment for operators. This includes Measurement Applications, Measurement Uncertainty, Operation and Maintenance. The course also focuses on specific ultrasonic meter measurement equipment diagnostics and how to interpret the information.

Motivation:

There are a variety of objectives and motivations for monitoring corrosion in plants or pipelines. Extended knowledge about internal corrosion reduce risk for accidents and adds to operational safety. Monitoring can provide alarms if critical changes in corrosion rates, or process parameters causing corrosion take place. Furthermore, monitoring can be part of long term integrity management programs, contributing to extended asset life and increased uptime. Also, monitoring can be used for optimizing production and reducing operational cost, e.g. through tuning production to maximum accepted sand levels, or through tuning of opportunity crudes for reduced crude cost. The different objectives require different types of information.


A variety of corrosion and erosion monitoring technologies are available, each with its strengths and limitations. It is observed that the choice of monitoring solution and data management strategy is often not designed according to the actual objective(s) driving the monitoring program in the first place. As a consequence, the potential information value from the system is may not be achieved. The objective of the course is to increase user value through a more structured thinking in the design as well as the operational phase of the system.

 

Course content:

The course will describe the different objectives driving corrosion and erosion monitoring, and how the design of the monitoring system should be based on the specific objectives in each case – with respect to choice of monitoring technologies (often a combination gives the best results), communication and data management strategy. The course will present corrosion monitoring instruments and the configuration of those. Applicable data management tools will be shown, and demonstration given as to how settings and handling of data should be adjusted to provide the targeted information.

• applications that fall outside the scope of these standards

• analysis and selection of valve designs and materials to satisfy challenges

• basic use of the Fisher Severe Service App on their smart phone or tablet Sequel to:Basic Sizing and Selection for Control, Isolation, Relief, and SIS Valves. 

With more than 50 WirelessHART devices in the Emerson WirelessHART portfolio, now is the time to remove the myths about the technology and obtain a firsthand understanding of the basics of WirelessHART and have the opportunity to set up your own WirelessHART network in a ‘hands-on’ session.

This course covers best practice engineering and maintenance in pressure applications. The current generation of pressure transmitters has many features that address common issues in pressure applications. The course is intended for engineering and maintenance technicians who deal with pressure applications on a regular basis. The course consists of three sections, each section contains a hands-on exercise. Part 1 covers the Best Practices in engineering and selection. We will discuss several challenging Pressure, DP Flow and DP Level applications and explain how to achieve a desired performance while maintaining a high reliability and reducing cost. Part 2 covers the maintenance on pressure applications. What tools are available, how to interpret the transmitter diagnostics, and what is the impact of certain transmitter settings on performance and transmitter response. We will also look at the Advanced Diagnostics that are available for pressure transmitters. Part 3 covers the Life Cycle Management of pressure applications. How to determine a calibration interval, when should a pressure transmitter be replaced, and when and how to upgrade existing measurements.

The session will explain how we can reduce the complexity of the control of on-off valves via a fieldbus; the session will cover also what diagnostic we can get and how easy the installation , the programming and the start up can be.

This course it dedicated to engineers, technicians and operators that work with pneumatics applications in the F&B or general machine automation segment. Pneumatic sealings are subject to natural wear which creates inefficiencies in pneumatic applications resulting in increased energy costs through leakage and downtime due to device failure. Pre-IIoT the possibilities to detect related warning signs were limited and retrofitting a machine to do so highly complicated. In this training session we will show how to set up our air flow sensors AF2 in connection with our IIoT gateway SPM in a retrofitting scenario. This scenario is based on a real customer use case in which detailed analysis created energy efficiency awareness and pinpoint irregularities resulting in projected savings of up to 80t$ per year in energy savings alone.
