Inkoel automation solution helps SOCAR maximize Kalmaz gas storage capacity and improve efficiency and safety. Inkoel upgrades to Endress+Hauser level and interface measurement technology, removing water from produced crude oil faster and better.

Baku, Azerbaijan. December 17, 2012 - Most crude oil production requires treatment to remove water. The crude oil must generally be free of water before it can be sold and transported in pipelines. Inkoel MMC in collaboration with Endress+Hauser has helped Binagadi Oil Company to remove water from produced crude oil faster and better.

Binagadi Oil has replaced unreliable ultrasonic and capacitance-based level measurement devices with new Levelflex FMP55 multi-parameter transmitters and Tank Gauging System from Endress+Hauser.

A common measurement in the oil production is detecting the interface level between oil and water in the tank. Emulsion always exists between oil and free water.The FMP55 guided wave radar is used to monitor the level and interface of oil and interface in 3 process tanks. High and low point level detection devices Liquiphant M FTL51 provide overfill prevention at the tanks. The Endress+Hauser FMP55 level transmitter combines guided wave and capacitance technologies, making it especially suitable for measuring interfaces with emulsion layers. The Levelflex FMP55 guided wave radar is enhanced with groundbreaking Sensor Fusion technology to offer best-in-class guided radar measurement for interface levels with emulsion layers. It combines the tried and trusted level monitoring capabilities of capacitance level measurement with the all the advantages of guided radar continuous monitoring in a single instrument to provide accurate, reliable interface level and overall level measurement. Redundant interface detection guarantees safe operation.

The Endress+Hauser Tank Gauging system provides inventory control with accurate data of level, volume and temperature at 3 additional storage tanks. The Tank Gauging System consists of the Tank Side Monitor NRF590, the non-contacting radar level transmitter FMR240 and the intrinsically safe multi-signal converter with precision average temperature sensor Prothermo NMT532. Each Tank Side Monitor NRF590 acquires data from the tank measurement transmitters via intrinsically safe 2 wire HART multidrop communication, displays at the on-site display and transfers the measured and calculated values to the upper level tank inventory system by EIA-485 Modbus interface.

Tank farm automation is now easier and less costly with the integration of Endress+Hauser Tank Gauging System and the Rockwell Automation digital automation system CompactLogix™ 1769. The more accurate and reliable tank automation system from Inkoel MMC has helped the customer to increase safety, reduce shutdowns and increase production.

Tim Jager is a PE and Project Director at DMC, a Siemens Solution Partner, and has been working as a systems integrator for the better part of two decades. This article is based on a presentation he gave at this summer’s Automation Summit in which he shared advice on how to get the most out of your relationship with a systems integrator.

A systems integrator is a person or company that specializes in bringing together component subsystems into a whole and ensuring that those subsystems function together, a practice known as systems integration. (Systems integrators recognized by Siemens are known as Siemens Solution Partners.)

There are three essential questions to ask about working with a systems integrator: When to use one? How to select one? And what to do to ensure a successful relationship?

Передовые системы управления периодическими процессами на современном производстве должны быть гибкими и масштабируемыми, обеспечивать реальное распределенное управление и обладать высокой динамичностью. Всеми этими качествами обладает новое решение SequenceManager от Rockwell Automation, позволяющее надежно и гибко задавать последовательность действий в контроллере при управлении периодическими процессами в модульном, автономном и индивидуальном оборудовании.

Используя возможности контроллерной платформы Logix от компании Rockwell Automation, решение SequenceManager позволяет оператору задавать, просматривать и получать важную информацию о сохраненных в контроллере последовательностях действий для партий, повышая прозрачность и доступность данных на всех этапах производственного процесса.

«Решение SequenceManager позволяет пользователю реализовать быстрое и надежное исполнение последовательности операций с низкими затратами на оборудование для автономных устройств или комплектных модульных систем», говорит Дэн Апдайк, менеджер по продукции компании Rockwell Automation. «Это масштабируемое решение делает современные возможности управления периодическими процессами доступными для малых и средних систем».

Over the years, automation users have complained about being locked into an industrial automation vendor’s system architecture. ExxonMobil has had enough of proprietary, closed systems and they are leading the charge to build the next generation, multi-vendor automation system. ExxonMobil’s announcement was major news at last week’s 2016 ARC Forum in Orlando, Florida. The Forum’s theme was “Industry in Transition: Navigating the New Age of Innovation.” ExxonMobil has engaged Lockheed Martin to build a multi-vendor interoperable prototype that is a standards-based, open, secure, and interoperable architecture, with commercially available software and hardware components. Lockheed Martin has deep experience with these types of systems from its other business and engineering activities.

ExxonMobil is not alone in this quest. Industry 4.0 and Industry 4.0 for Process initiatives in Europe have already adopted some world standards including ISA95, OPC UA and PLCopen with the objective of achieving multi-vendor, open interoperability. These groups would do well to collaborate.
