Emerson simplifies asset health monitoring and maintenance
Technews Industry Guide: Maintenance, Reliability & Asset Optimisation 2018, IT in Manufacturing


With the demand to implement the IIoT, the challenge is knowing where to start. Plants generate more data than ever before without meaningful analytics to guide expert decisions and actions. Plantweb enables customers a scalable, easy path into IIoT benefits that will transform data into truly actionable information – information that plant personnel can use to improve the safety, reliability and efficiency of assets, people and processes.

Deployable via traditional workstation, tablet or smartphone, Emerson’s Plantweb Insight apps provide specific asset alerts that enable companies to see a quick return on investment in months by avoiding slowdowns and shutdowns. Instead of having to rely on an asset expert, these affordable apps can be quickly deployed and easily accessed anytime, anywhere by maintenance staff to improve asset operations. A user can begin with one or more assets, such as pumps or heat exchangers, and then expand as they achieve measurable benefits.

The built-in domain expertise of the analytics helps resolve asset issues that were formerly solved by periodic, time-consuming manual rounds or unexpected failures. Pre-built analytics require minimal configuration, and its flexible software is operating system-independent, easily installing and integrating with existing infrastructures.

Using Plantweb Insight, users can improve asset reliability and energy usage by identifying abnormal situations and inefficiencies, recognising optimum maintenance times, and tracking asset health to identify and prevent failures before they occur. They also can avoid potential safety incidents and ensure regulatory compliance, reducing fines and environmental impact though the real-time identification of leaks and other hazards. Plantweb Insight is currently available with applications for steam trap monitoring, pump monitoring and pressure gauge monitoring. The newest app in the suite:

• Heat Exchanger Insight – this Plantweb app provides an overview of heat exchanger status and diagnostics from all the instruments on the network. Based on an algorithm, it provides directions to maintenance on where to focus action for issues, and provides a detail of the issue to guide them in efficient resolution, thereby avoiding slowdowns and shutdowns.

Future Plantweb Insight applications launching in the next year include:

• Air-Cooled Heat Exchanger.

• Pressure Relief Device Insight.

• Network Management Insight.

• Corrosion Insight.
