Inline process analysers continuously produce results, often more than once per second. Production sites rely on these results for process control. However, keeping analysers up and running by analyser specialists in the field used to be very time-consuming as they were kept busy with maintenance, calibration and troubleshooting.
Today, inline analysers have become digital and intelligent. They contain a lot of information on status, calibration, signal validity and more, information that can now be consulted remotely, opening a whole new world to the inline process analyser technology (i-PAT).

All very well, but what are the advantages? Learn about how to reduce maintenance, operating costs and increase uptime and reliability of the results.
Take a seat, relax and see how easy it is to let your intelligent analyser work for you.

Integrated Management of Multiple Analysers 4.0

Cor Swart, VP Advanced Application Europe Schneider Electric, and Otto Kubbenga, Lead Engineer AVEVA

An integrated approach for monitoring, validating, calibrating, maintaining multiple process analyzers in an efficient way.

Applying automatically the ASTM / API standard validation calculation with embedded workflow management to ensure actions are taken based on comprehensive information presentation.

A number of cases will be presented, notably from Shell Nigeria LNG, Valero refineries, TotalEnergy and the Orpic Liwa cracker.

Hydrocarbon Processing Industry: Bridging the Gap between Lab GC and On-line GC
John Wasson, President, Wasson-ECE Instrumentation

Using mass spectrometry (GC-MS) in process gas chromatographs brings laboratory-quality analysis to process streams.
Examples of ppb-ppm detection of analytes of interest to ethylene, propylene, and butadiene producers and fuels producers.

Sample Systems, Contributing to a Timely Response
Niels Bellicourt, Field Engineer, Swagelok

Achieving correct time delay in an analytical system is necessary in making life of process plant operators more easy and reliable. When a process flow readout has an off spec, knowing when this happened is critical for plant operation.

Most process people assume that all measurements are instantaneous, this can be very confusing when looking into analyser results. Delay is inevitable even with in situ sensors. There is not much point in getting an accurate result when this result comes too late.

A timely response needs to be ensured, it does however need to meet the purpose of the measurement itself.

Generally reaction processes are fast and might need the analyses in 10 seconds or less, distillation processes are slow and 10 minutes of delay might be acceptable.

Inline, Real-time & Networked Process Monitoring Takes the Next Step with Raman Spectroscopy
Jeanne Desconclois, Process Analysis Solutions Consultant & Quality Manager, Endress+Hauser BeLux

New types of analyzers based on Raman spectroscopy enable inline, real-time monitoring of chemical compositions, directly in their industrial environments, in a variety of applications and industry sectors. Endress+Hauser Kaiser Raman analyzers make the bridge between R&D and production by providing transferable data from laboratory to process environment. Their integrated computer and software embrace Industry 4.0 needs by providing remote digital access to your spectroscopic data, measurements and diagnostics whenever and wherever you need, leading to much-improved and faster process optimization, safety and quality control.

In this presentation, we invite you to have a look at the technology and its added value thanks to practical examples of applications in the chemical, oil and gas, life sciences and food & beverages industries.

State of the Art in Wastewater Treatment Plant Management
Michael Dooley, Managing Director, Strathkelvin Instruments

Strathkelvin Instruments Ltd have developed the Activated Sludge Plant Controller to give the State of the Art in Wastewater Treatment Plant Management. The modular system is self-cleaning and self-calibrating and measures over 20 different parameters allowing fully automatic control of the treatment process whilst minimising treatment cost and Carbon Consumption.
One particular parameter, which is of key interest to many managers, is the Toxic Affect the Influent may have on the Treatment Plant Bacteria. The ASP-Con can automatically measure this Toxicity or Inhibition level every 15 minutes and this paper will detail the Technology behind the measurement, show how it is performed and present real life case studies.
The best case study so far has been the Cookstown Case study where 50% of Total Site Energy was saved, i.e. 1.004 GWh; € 132.490,- and 502 Tes Carbon per annum
