Company Success Stories
Real world asset owners and how they use and benefit from ISA100 Wireless.
The Bodycote facility was able to measure its total gas consumption, but it was unable to measure how much gas was being used at each of its furnaces. Without a clear understanding of the per-furnace gas usage, its managers were unable to effectively increase plant efficiency, diminishing the plant's profitability.
CNPC Oil Depot
The CNPC Northwest Sales Center Xigu Oil Depot was reconstructing to support real-time data acquisition from the control system, the operation of the railway loading bridge, and the Beitan Oil depot.
ENAP Aconcagua Refinery
The refinery needed to be able to measure pH, oxygen concentration, temperature, flow, and opacity of water discharged into the ocean in order to meet new environmental regulations. Measurements needed to be made on a real-time basis in a safe, secure, and cost effective manner.
Frontier El Dorado
The Frontier El Dorado Refining Company knew the total amount of material going into its Flare Gas Recovery Unit (FGRU), but did not know where it was coming from. Each event required an individual investigation of every unit, consuming time and decreasing efficiency.
Hexion needed to upgrade its smoke detection system. The smoke warning system included a manual telephone call to the Hexion warehouse as the only way to pass on information.
Qenos was using a combination of an older wireless technology and fixed cable telephone lines to move data from plant to plant and measure product transfers. However, the fixed digital telephone line was being phased out by the incumbent telecommunications provider. And the existing wireless solution was facing maintenance issues.
Qingdao Refinery’s Water Supply System was using wired flow meters. The measurement points were scattered, and cabling to the control room was difficult. Data reading was done by manual inspection, causing high labor costs and non-real-time data.
The company struggled with access and reliability of tank level and temperature readings. Wiring for the system was expensive and undependable. The existing single loop solution required continuous monitoring by the instrumentation department.
Shire received FDA approval for a new pharmaceutical product and had to act quickly to build a plant to produce the new offering. They needed a wireless system with the ability to scale up quickly, and with proven technical capabilities.
Tata faced data integrity issues when tapping signals from remote process control areas, and other distant locations including the gas scrubber. Long distances made maintenance and troubleshooting difficult for engineers.
