Reliability and Performance Improvements Unlock Future Growth Potential
August 2, 2023
This major national midstream service provider needed to increase efficiency and avoid surge when operating the plant’s two refrigeration compressors in parallel.
After completing a site survey, Emerson developed a customized load sharing algorithm to operate within the plant’s most efficient window relative to their compression load. Once the customer upgraded their electrical infrastructure, Emerson implemented its recommendations. Experitec oversaw the entire project and adapted Emerson’s functionality to look and feel like the customer’s existing Distributed Control System (DCS).
Implementing sophisticated models, such as these, reveals the interrelationship between automation and reliability technologies. The fact that this site will benefit for years from reduced strain on their systems, people, and utility bills is just an added bonus to why ROI can be found in process and asset optimization projects.
