Process Controls, Instrumentation and Automation: Reduce maintenance costs by optimizing pressure transmitter calibration intervals

Pressure instrumentation is crucial for the functionality and safety of hydrocarbon processing facilities worldwide.

Burton, B., Emerson Automation Solutions

Pressure instrumentation is crucial for the functionality and safety of hydrocarbon processing facilities worldwide. Many of these facilities deploy hundreds or even thousands of pressure devices to accurately monitor and maintain optimal pressure levels in various applications. With so many of these devices in one plant, it is essential to minimize servicing and maintenance costs. Optimizing the calibration frequency of pressure transmitters is one way to achieve significant cost savings, helping producers maintain affordability and allowing them to achieve greater operating returns. Unfortunately, legacy best practices and broadly applied internal standards have created calibration mainten
