New analytics software automates utilities monitoring

13 December 2022 Analytical Instrumentation & Environmental Monitoring

Emerson has announced its new Clean In Place (CIP) Utilities and Automated Reporting Analytics package delivered via PACEdge and Movicon platforms on an industrial edge control device. The software aids in digitally transforming manual and semi-automated systems by optimising utilities consumption and benchmarking against known cycles. The resulting automated reports generated can be used to reduce energy consumption and improve productivity in a single system or throughout a facility.

The CIP Utilities & Automated Reporting Analytics package combines Emerson’s application expertise and industry knowledge with advanced technology to convert process and utilities data into actionable insights for the food and beverage industries and other environments that use clean- and steam-in-place operations.

Central to food and beverage production, clean-in-place systems clean and sanitise internal piping, tanks and machines between product batches to help facilities meet government regulations and guarantee product quality and safety. CIP skids that don’t have sensors and analytics software require manual reporting, which can be time-consuming and susceptible to errors. These skids may also run at unnecessarily long preset cycles and use more time and resources than required for effective cleaning.

Digitally transformed and optimised CIP processes, in comparison, only use the time, media, water, energy and labour required for effective cleaning, significantly reducing waste and increasing production time.

Equipped with the data and analytics provided by the software, plant managers, operators and maintenance personnel can view the information on a dashboard and share the insights with sustainability officers and other stakeholders to optimise its CIP cycles.
