Managing Asset Health by Combining Behavior Patterns with FMEA
1 March 2022

Sponsor: AspenTech

As it relates to asset reliability, Failure Modes and Effect Analysis (FMEA) is a process to identify potential failures in a system as well as their causes and effects. By combining predictive maintenance technology with FMEA tools, companies can associate causation with known failures and their suggested FMEA remedies – leading to earlier intervention, minimized equipment damage, fewer process interruptions and improved production yields.

Join AspenTech’s Mike Brooks and John Campbell to understand how ‘Smart’ FMEA combined with Aspen Mtell® predictive maintenance can help you:

  • Detect and mitigate issues early to avoid production losses Improve maintenance planning by connecting
  • Mtell alerts to known FMEA codes
  • Monitor process and machine sensor data to identify new failure signatures and anomalous behavior for improved asset health

Register now to learn how today’s leading companies are combining traditional FMEA and machine learning for holistic asset health management.

There will be a Q&A session following the event. We encourage you to join the conversation by submitting questions during registration.

Process Optimization using Verified Hydrocarbon Analysis
23 February 2022

Sponsor: VUV Analytics

Characterization of hydrocarbon streams, including speciation and quantitation, has traditionally been accomplished using Detailed Hydrocarbon Analysis, or DHA, by GC-FID. Requiring long run times, very good chromatographic separation, significant manual review of data, and specialized resources; traditional DHA has changed little since it was first introduced over 40 years ago.
Verified Hydrocarbon Analysis™ is a modern approach to traditional DHA using Gas Chromatography (GC)- Vacuum Ultraviolet Spectroscopy (VUV) and spectral validation to characterize complex hydrocarbon streams – accurately, without the need for human intervention, and in a fraction of the time of traditional DHA.

This presentation will describe VHA, technology and methodology, and provide relevant examples including of how VHA can be implemented by refinery operations to optimize FCC and Alkylation unit processes.

Analysis of Recycled Plastics using the VUV Analyzer™ for Alternative Feedstocks
15 December 2021

Sponsor: VUV Analytics

Plastic waste is recognized as a significant environmental challenge as well as an opportunity. Many organizations are actively involved in recycling plastic waste and by using pyrolysis technologies converting it into usable petrochemical feedstocks. The output of this process is challenging to analyze with traditional analytical approaches used for traditional hydrocarbon streams. This presentation will preview a new automated application using Gas Chromatography (GC)-Vacuum Ultraviolet Spectrometry (VUV) that provides accurate identification and PIONA-type quantification of pyrolysis oils over a broad carbon number range.

Plastic Pyrolysis Oil Analysis
23 November 2021

Sponsor: Vuv Analytics

Plastic waste conversion technology based on thermal pyrolysis will help reduce plastic waste through integrated processing solutions for turning end-of-life plastics into pyrolysis oil. The analyses of these samples are critical to the overall performance of the process and the usefulness of the product generated. Lummus Technology is at the forefront of this technology and the analytical support needed to make it successful. This presentation will focus on the hydrocarbon analysis of multiple samples from different plastic waste starting feeds and the power of the spectral analysis that GC-VUV provides.

Implementing Condition Based Maintenance Strategy for Plantwide Automation Assets
19 November 2021

Sponsor: Schneider Electric

Plant automation including field devices is not only fundamental building block of any industrial plant but also represents significant capital and operational cost.

Traditionally, plants have adopted preventive maintenance practices to prevent unscheduled downtime. While this may uncover some possible problems, studies have found that not only this maintenance approach labor-intensive, it does not eliminate the possibility of catastrophic failures.

During this webinar we will discuss a Condition-Based Maintenance approach for plant automation assets, which will deliver higher plant productivity at lower risk.

In this webinar, you will learn about:

  • Constraints of current maintenance strategy for plant automation assets
  • Steps for an effective Condition based Maintenance program for plant automation assets
  • A customer success story

How Turbomachinery Drives the Future of Renewable Hydrocarbons
17 November 2021

Sponsor: Atlas Copco Gas and Process

As the world transitions to a circular, decarbonized economy, renewable hydrocarbons such as renewable diesel are expected to play an essential role in the future fuel and feedstock mix. As is the case in traditional hydrocarbon processing, many of the future production processes will strongly rely on rotating equipment such as turbocompressors and turboexpanders to treat such challenging gases as CO2, hydrogen and syngas feedstocks.

This Webinar is focused on:
- The requirements of EPCs, process licensors and end users alike
- Giving a broader look at how turbomachinery can support renewable hydrocarbon processes
- Turbomachinery designs for handling the challenges of decarbonized production
