Improving Efficiency, Safety and Profitability in Refining & Petrochemicals – the Role of Predictive Engineering Analytics

FREE

REGISTER

If you’re involved in equipment design, maximizing refinery uptime and efficiency, troubleshooting problems or preparing for turnarounds, and are interested in the latest predictive digital simulation and analytics technology, this webinar is for you.

Operational excellence and innovation are key to increasing profitability in the refining and petrochemicals industries. To outperform in today’s competitive market, engineers need tools that enable them to develop the most complete understanding of the complex physical and chemical processes occurring in the equipment and facilities they design, operate and maintain.

Whether it’s quantifying risk of vibration in piping, maldistribution of flow causing catalyst exhaustion, separation performance, combustion, thermal fatigue or coking, successful management of fluid and particle dynamics, heat transfer and structural behavior are critical for maximizing refinery uptime and process efficiency and avoiding unplanned shutdowns.  

This webinar will introduce the role of simulation-based digital twins in operating more efficient, more reliable facilities and in meeting environmental regulations.  It will provide specific case study examples of how a predictive engineering approach is being applied in refineries and process systems and adding value throughout the engineering life-cycle.

Calculating the ROI of Digital Solutions and the Opportunity to Improve Reliability

FREE

REGISTER

Bentley Systems is a leading global provider of software solutions for the design, construction, and operations of asset intensive infrastructures. Bentley Systems is leading the evolution of Digitization technologies that impact Reliability, Maintenance, and Operational Excellence in the Energy Sector, by harnessing the power of APM and Digital Twin technologies.

In this webinar we will propose a value hypothesis based on a theoretical 100,000 barrel a day refinery as it relates to our APM and Digital Twin technologies. We will then validate said value hypothesis, by sharing results from three of our users who deployed and leveraged our technologies. Our first user designed and implemented an Information Plant (IP) at its refinery that integrated the facility’s technical data, engineering resource planning information, and documents into one reliable system, improving and supporting daily operations, maintenance, projects, and business decisions. Our second user implemented AssetWise Asset Reliability to digitalize, automate, and compile all reliability and integrity analysis and inspection data management into one connected data environment integrated to SAP Enterprise Asset Management system for work execution. Our last user example brought all their refinery asset data and information together to contextualize, validate and visualize complete asset and reliability data into a complete Digital Twin.

Digital Reliability: 24/7 Real-Time Machinery Diagnostics

FREE

REGISTER

When it comes to the reliability of equipment in process facilities, it is imperative that operators, managers, and maintenance teams have a clear picture of each machine’s health in real-time. COMPACS represents a paradigm shift from sudden equipment failures to early detection and identification of issues.  What does this mean for your facility?

In this webinar you will learn how to virtually eliminate all accidents and fires and knowing the real-time health of all the equipment in your facility empowers you to schedule maintenance and repairs in the most cost-effective manner possible.

This webinar will also cover:

  • Operator Driven Reliability

  • How to use Digital Reliability to Efficiently Plan Maintenance and Repairs

  • Maximizing Machinery Uptime and eliminating Unplanned Downtime

Gaining Accuracy and Repeatability in Flare Gas Measurement Technology

FREE

REGISTER

Ultrasonic is the leading technology used in flare gas measurement applications for the chemical and petrochemical industry. The primary area of application involves calculating greenhouse gas emissions based on the amount of flare gas measured in accordance with regulatory requirements. SICK technology, like the ultrasonic flare flowmeter technology, has been developed precisely for this purpose.

In this webinar, you will learn how SICK can provide high-quality flow measurement technology to ensure accurate and reliable measurement for a variety of flare gas compositions and applications.

Basics of Temperature Calibration

FREE

REGISTER

Misconceptions surrounding temperature sensors remain common in the chemical process industries, and this webinar is designed to address them. Subject matter experts Roy Tomalino and Ned Espy of Beamex will help webinar attendees readjust their temperature-calibration mindsets by clearing up misunderstandings and demonstrating methods such as:

– Common and advanced temperature applications

– How to successfully use a temperature dry block to calibrate sensors

– Calibration of a traditional single-sensor probe

– Calibrating multiple sensors simultaneously augments time savings

Join us as we demystify temperature calibration!

Improve Plant Reliability, Efficiency, and Reduce Energy/Maintenance Costs with Flow Analysis Software

FREE

REGISTER

How much operational down time did your plant have in the last 5 years due to expensive system repairs caused by various operational problems?  What was the maintenance cost for equipment repair after repair?  How much did it cost to operate the system when it was running?  Is there a solution available that can help minimize downtime, reduce repair/maintenance/energy costs, and increase profitability?

These are questions that all plant owners and operators should be asking themselves because operational problems may happen frequently.  The good news is that there are tremendous opportunities available to solve these issues and dramatically improve the bottom-line profitability of plant operation!

Come and learn how one particular chemical plant gained a dramatic increase in reliability and efficiency after dealing with 5 years of expensive repairs costing over $1.23 million.

Interlocking to Drive Usability

FREE

REGISTER

Interlocking has evolved from physical relays and contacts to a software implementation of relays and contacts. Because software implementations are cheaper and easier to implement and to change, this can have the unintended consequence of creating complex interlocking schemas that are difficult to identify why a piece of equipment will not start.

This presentation will look at the engineering of interlocks as well as the operational strategies to give operators and technicians the tools necessary to quickly and effectively identify why a piece of equipment will not start or why it tripped offline.

How Digital Sample Systems Improve Efficiency and Reduce Costs in Chemical Plants

FREE

REGISTER

In this webinar, learn how digital sample systems enable you to leverage the three pillars of a successful digital program – data, analysis, and tools – so you can increase operational effectiveness, optimize asset availability, get the most out of limited human resources and cut costs. You’ll discover how connected digital sample systems technologies differ from traditional sample systems and why digital connectivity supports more cost-effective predictive maintenance practices. Plus, for a real-world perspective, LyondellBasell will share insights into what prompted them to implement a digital sampling system in several/one of their processing plants and how this new technology has impacted its operations.  

Electrolysis Hydrogen Will Revolutionize Hydrogen Availability and Benefits

FREE

REGISTER

Green hydrogen, made economically using abundant, cost-effective renewable energy, is creating new chemical synthesis opportunities – fuels, intermediates, and polymers. As hydrogen storage continues to be a challenge, the ability to flexibly create storable products from hydrogen enables more effective use of hydrogen made from renewables.
