Sharing Process Variables: Analog Isolation

When sharing one Process Variable (PV) with multiple systems, the connection needs to be thought out carefully.  Creating a series connection for the 4-20mA signal is not a best practice for sharing the PV. The main problem in creating a series connection is when either the DCS or the PLC input is disconnected, intentionally or by accident, both the DCS and the PLC will lose the PV signal.

SPA2IS Controls and Monitors Wet Wells

Wastewater Treatment Application

SPA2IS Controls and Monitors Wet Wells
Municipalities often have several wet well locations around a city that pump waste from low lying areas up to main sewage veins that feed waste treatment plants.  Level instruments monitor the wet well level and controllers then engage the grinder pumps.  Since wet wells contain waste, volatile gasses such as methane require that these level instruments be rated for use in Class I, Div 1 environments.

Remote I/O Solution for Boiler Temperature

Chemical and Specialty Chemical

Remote I/O Solution for Boiler Temperature

A large and long established chemical plant in New South Whales, Australia had been monitoring boiler tube thermocouples from multiple process boilers for more than 20 years. Originally all type K thermocouples were wired directly back to the DCS.  Over time they started to see drifting, errors and even out of range measurements due to the degradation of their long thermocouple extension wire runs. Learn how Moore Industries solved this problem.

Alumina Refinery: Overpressure Protection of a Filter Vessel
The process of converting bauxite to alumina for aluminium metal refining involves a complex manufacturing process.  Much of this process requires critical temperature and pressure control, which if left unchecked could result in catastrophic consequences. Learn how Moore Industries solved this problem for an alumina refinery in Australia.
