    Securing Industrial Systems In A Digital World

    The development of Industrial Control Systems (ICS) over the past two decades has changed the face of many industries. Operation Technology (OT) — largely industrial equipment — has become increasingly connected, and the integration of Information Technology (IT) components allows such devices to leverage software that drives data collection and analysis, resulting in enhanced performance and ultimately "smarter" machines.

  • 5 Questions To Ask Before Selecting A Process Data Analytics Solution
    5 Questions To Ask Before Selecting A Process Data Analytics Solution

    The data generation and collection strategies at the center of manufacturing processes have evolved dramatically, especially in recent years. Process manufacturers now collect and store huge volumes of data throughout their operations, both on and off premise, across multiple geographic locations, in an increasing number of separate data silos. In this paper, we propose five questions we believe every process manufacturing buyer should ask when evaluating a data analytics solution.

  • Enhancing HVAC Performance: Siemens Clamp-On Flow Meters Chosen For NYC Building Complex
    Enhancing HVAC Performance: Siemens Clamp-On Flow Meters Chosen For NYC Building Complex

    A commercial real estate corporation that owns, develops and operates premier properties in major North American cities was one of the earliest companies to recognize the benefit of individually metering tenants for their utility usage. When designing a prestigious building complex in New York City, the company sought a flow meter that would facilitate this task. After careful consideration of several options, the choice became clear: clamp-on ultrasonic flow technology from Siemens.

    Saving Energy And Enhancing Environmental Sustainability At A Top University In Asia

    At one of the most prestigious universities in Asia, the main campus comprises a large number of buildings clustered within an area less than 2 km2 (1.2 mi2). Because the university was built more than a century ago, many facilities on the campus were never fitted with the proper instrumentation for energy measurement, making it difficult or impossible to monitor the performance of most HVAC systems, including the cooling system.

  • Air / Gas Mass Flow Meter Improves Wastewater Treatment Processing Efficiency
    Air / Gas Mass Flow Meter Improves Wastewater Treatment Processing Efficiency

    One of the most common processes in wastewater treatment is the activated sludge method, which biologically treats the wastewater through the use of large aeration basins. This process requires the pumping of compressed air into the aeration basins where a diffuser system ensures the air is distributed evenly for optimum treatment. The energy needed to provide compressed air is a significant cost in the operation of a wastewater treatment plant.

    2 Applications That Triggered The Rise Of Coriolis Flow Measurement

    Coriolis measurement has been adopted as a default technology in many application scenarios due to its high accuracy and immunity to process variables (temperature, pressure and flow profile). However, Coriolis wasn't always widely accepted. Two applications, in particular, helped what was once a nascent flow measurement technology gain a foothold in the marketplace.

    The Importance Of Measuring Total Organic Carbon

    Organic carbon compounds vary greatly. In fact, one of the first lessons in most introductory Organic Chemistry courses explains that the number of possible carbon compounds is virtually infinite due to carbon’s ability to form long, chain-like molecules. While chromatographic methods like gas chromatography (GC) or high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) are able to make quantitative determinations for specific compounds, the user must first know which specific compounds to look for.
