Emerson and Puffer-Sweiven offer service programs that provide periodic reviews of your control performance, including assessing the health and effectiveness of the associated instrumentation and control valves. These programs require periodic review of process data, either with consultant’s onsite or through remotely connected services.
Process variability can have negative impacts on your plant efficiency, throughput, product quality, or raw material, and energy consumption. Our Control Performance Consultants can determine the root cause of loop performance issues, ensuring that unwanted variability will not creep into your process.
APC projects often have a quick payback period but sustaining those benefits over a long period requires regular oversight by a qualified expert. After implementing a new control strategy, best practices recommend periodic reviews to ensure the strategy is performing optimally.
In a typical process plant, almost two-thirds of control loops are underperforming, whether running in manual or exhibiting excessive variability. Through continuous monitoring, Emerson and Puffer-Sweiven can help you recognize when a faulty measurement, defective valve, or poor tuning is disrupting your operational goals.
