Minimizing the Maintenance of Inerting Systems
3 May 2018

In inerting and blanketing operations, maintaining a low oxygen level is vital in preventing explosive conditions from developing.

 Tunable diode laser (TDL) oxygen sensors operate directly in the pipe, vessel or tank, with no need for maintenance-hungry sampling and conditioning equipment. 

 Topics include:

  • Challenges with extractive systems
  • Benefits of in situ measurement
  • Low maintenance needs of TDL analyzers

Optimizing IIoT Value in Oil & Gas with IT-OT Alignment
6 April 2018

Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT) teams have traditionally worked independently of one another. But the rise of digital transformation initiatives has forced organizations to rethink siloed operations. To achieve maximum business value, aligning the divided worlds of IT and OT can significantly accelerate IIoT's time to value. To learn how your organization can maximize IIoT value through an IT-OT alignment, download our new white paper.

Successfully Planning Your Next Shutdown, Turnaround, or Outage (STO)
3 April 2018

There is a lot at risk when planning an STO event. Any flawed implementation can contribute to health and safety incidents, post-startup trips, and other failures such as scope creep, discovery work, budget overruns, safety concerns, and work delays.

It is important to carefully choose who you will be working with as you execute your STO. In this planning guide, you will learn about process improvement opportunities in your STO from beginning to end.

The keys to successful planning include:

  • Removing guesswork from your worklist
  • Reducing risks by preparing for discovery work
  • Leveraging modern technology and expertise

Bringing Greater Efficiency to Small-Scale LNG with Multi-Section Integrally Geared Compressors
5 March 2018

Although SSLNG expands the options for LNG’s availability, small-scale projects have a different set of technical and logistical requirements than larger facilities. The technologies, including the compressors running the refrigeration cycle, often can’t be efficiently scaled down. The multi-section technology employed by IGCs offers a flexible and economically attractive solution.
