Digitizing Inspection Rounds: IIoT at Work
4 August 2022

The industrial internet of things (IIoT) has taken hold. For industrial companies that rely on paper-based operator rounds, this new layer of technology means transitioning to a smarter, more connected, and more profitable way of doing business. Companies that embrace the fourth industrial revolution and connect their field operations with a mobile solution will find an immediate payoff in simplified execution and tracking of complex processes and fast ROI.

A New Standard in Passive Fire Protection (PFP) Coatings Performance
14 July 2022

In recent years, several high-profile PFP coatings failures in cold-weather climates, such as a well documented case at the oil sands in Alberta, Canada, have demonstrated the need for more rigorous testing of intumescent epoxy coatings for application in such environments. This white paper highlights a comprehensive test regimen sponsored by a major coatings manufacturer and developed and executed by a leading international university, which compared five intumescent epoxy passive fire protection (EPFP) products commonly specified for hydrocarbon industry steel structures. The testing served not only to quantify the potential performance of the five EPFP coatings in less-temperate climates but may also provide a template for industrywide adoption of more comprehensive testing standards for PFP coatings in general, particularly as their use continues to expand in northern locales and on lighter, pre-coated, modular steel structures.

Looking for a more sustainable future with CO2 & IGCs
14 July 2022

Integrally geared compressors provide many of the answers to many of the questions posed by working with the challenging properties of CO2. With their single-skid designs, IGCs lower capex and have smaller footprints. Their lube oil and seal solutions are major factors in their proven high efficiency and reliability, and they have the capability to provide greater power with fewer impellers.

Powering A Sustainable and Profitable Energy Transition on Digital Solutions
8 June 2022

The Energy Transition, at the pace and scale required, is no simple matter. It will take innovation, collaboration, and cooperation at an unprecedented level. It will require physical changes in how we generate, transport, and consume energy. It will mobilize capital and investments in nascent energy sources and assets. It will affect how we think about land use and the importance of energy density. It will change how companies, including competitors, work together to achieve the progress required.
