A Joint Research Centre (JRC) Scientific and Policy Report, Corrosion‐Related Accidents in Petroleum Refineries, found [emphasis and hyperlink mine]: Notably, of the 137 major refinery accidents reported by EU countries to the EU’s eMARS [Major Accident Reporting System] database since 1984, around 20% indicated corrosion failure as an important contributing factor. Many other industries including […]

Equipment failure is a large part of unplanned downtime, slowdowns and/or loss in quality of the product being produced. Monitoring temperatures, vibration, differential pressures across filters are often performed to identify problems before failure occurs. Another important set of measurements that can provide early warning are the voltage, current and other electrical parameters on the […]

Many of the pumps in process manufacturing and production processes are essential and their failure results in reduced or lost production and increased maintenance costs. In an Upstream Pumping article, Wireless Monitoring Reduces Pump Failures & Maintenance Costs, Emerson’s Brian Atkinson describes way to make use of technology to avoid these failures. He opens citing […]

Unless you are lucky enough to have a process that flows downhill, you likely have pumps moving liquids through the process. And if these liquids come in large volumes such as hydrocarbon movement and storage facilities, these pumps can be very large and dangerous should failures occur. In a World Pipelines article, Flow management starts […]
