Emerson Unveils Industry's First Suite of Wireless Pre-Engineered Essential Asset Monitoring Solutions
Integrated application solutions monitor more key assets 24/7 to avoid shutdowns and slowdowns, reduce maintenance and energy costs
AUSTIN, TEXAS -- Emerson Process Management has announced availability of Essential Asset Monitoring solutions, the industry’s first family of integrated wireless application solutions for equipment monitoring.
The pre-engineered monitoring and analysis solutions embed process and equipment knowledge into a wide range of applications and use existing wired and new wireless instruments to form a network for continuous automated expert monitoring. Integrated solutions are available for pumps, blowers, compressors, heat exchangers, fired heaters, corrosion, and cooling towers.
The new 24/7 online monitoring solutions reduce monitoring costs through pre-engineering savings and wireless efficiency. Whereas wired continuous monitoring is traditionally afforded for only the most expensive and critical assets, the lower costs of Essential Asset Monitoring solutions enable expanded asset oversight.
"Equipment failures are a common cause of outages and incidents," commented Tom Snead, president, global projects, Emerson. "Predictive monitoring by Essential Asset Monitoring solutions delivers diagnostics as well as equipment and process health alerts that enable timely corrective actions to keep the facility online, increasing production availability and savings on maintenance and energy costs."
Snead continued, "Our research has shown that unit or site-wide Essential Asset Monitoring application solutions can help owner-operators increase production capacity by 1.2%, save 14% of maintenance costs, and 2% of energy costs."
The pre-engineered solutions are scalable. Users simply choose the number and type of applications that monitor threats specific to their facility. Their resulting solution will include a wireless field network communicating data from monitoring instruments to AMS Suite operator graphics and maintenance screens, and to host systems and data applications.
