In some thermal process systems, performance data gets trapped at equipment level. It is impractical for the worker to physically stand next to the equipment to catch alerts, at a time when the thermal processing industry is under pressure to be more productive, often needing to accomplish more with fewer resources.
With a diminishing number of combustion specialists, rising energy costs and reduced profit margins, manufacturers with thermal processing operations are striving to increase productivity and reduce operating expenses. Their concerns include:
- Diminishing number of thermal process experts due to ageing workforce
- Increasing plant efficiency
- Reducing maintenance costs
- Minimizing unplanned downtime
To this end, they require production and process systems that operate in a smart, efficient and sustainable manner.
