Emerson, Heat Exchanger, Monitoring System

Emerson Process Management’s new wireless Air Cooled Heat Exchanger Monitoring Solution uses a pre-engineered application and networks of wireless or wired instruments to help prevent heat exchanger failures. The monitoring solution oversees and diagnoses the full range of failure modes to alert personnel of deteriorating health so operators can adjust operation in a controlled manner to match available (reduced) cooling, and corrective maintenance action can be taken. Automated monitoring also helps operators avoid safety concerns with manual monitoring that result from sending personnel on field rounds, as well as costly environmental incidents when manual monitoring slows operator response causing a relief valve to lift and flaring to occur.
