High Reliability Organizations (HRO’s), such as air traffic control, are said to exhibit a ‘chronic sense of unease’ towards serious accident hazards, and this trait is something that the process industry is striving towards to combat the commonly identified peril of ‘complacency.’
This white paper discusses the basics of uncertainty in measurement and calibration. It is not made for mathematicians or metrology experts, but rather for those of you who are planning and making practical measurements and calibrations in industrial applications.
Is 80 GHz radar so focused that it’s a non-contact alternative to guided wave radar? What if the same directional performance and measurement certainty of guided wave radar (GWR) were available in a non-contact radar device?
The revolutionary approach of Industry 4.0 should not be seen as a one-time fundamental change, but as openness to permanent change. Connecting to the internet boosts the functionality and performance of an industrial plant and machinery – thereby permanently adjusting and improving seamless integration and in the form of digital, value-added networks.
Moving products around during processing is an inherent need for most medium and large-scale food manufacturers. The texture and viscosity of food is not only an important quality parameter, but it also influences how it behaves during production and processing. Therefore, it should influence the choice of handling and treatment equipment used in the manufacturing process.
It’s no secret that the frequency and cost of data breaches and cyberattacks are on the rise, and that hacker’s tactics are rapidly evolving. In fact, in a 2018 Security Study, it was found that 100 per cent of the companies surveyed had experienced a cyberattack, suffering an average of 12.5 breaches per year, while spending as much as $5.8 million to recover.
Magnetic separation applications in the chemical processing industry are as diverse as the industry itself. The vast differences in chemistry among polymers, acids, rubbers, plastics, wet and dry chemicals, and pharmaceuticals are essential factors to consider when choosing magnetic separation equipment.
Tumble blender technology enhances the speed and homogeneous blending of nutraceutical components and powders to substantiate label claims and clinical trials.
Decision cycles across the energy and chemical industries are becoming increasingly disrupted by proliferation of data, new data sources and compute speeds within an increasingly volatile business environment. The digital twin is the key to effective decision-making in this new world.
INEOS Styrolution, a global specialist in styrenics, has disclosed the first results of the ResolVe, a project that addresses research related to chemical recycling of polystyrene.
