Case Study: Leveraging IIoT Technologies to Reduce Valve-Related Unplanned Downtime
Challenge: In the process industry, one of the most important, yet often overlooked assets, are control valves. Without reliable control valve operation, most processes quickly become uncontrollable leading to unplanned downtime. To fill this need, Emerson designed a valve maintenance service that leverages its valve expertise to fill existing gaps in valve maintenance practices and bring more actionable information to end users. Recognizing that its internal data visualization tools were not designed as an effective plantwide solution, Emerson partnered with Seeq, to improve the data visualization tools used to predict future valve alarms.
