See how Modern Alarm Rationalization can benefit YOUR plant

Send us a sample of your process history data for a free,
no-obligation assessment of your operator alarm quality!

Operator alarms are the key to improving value from your process plant by increasing uptime and reducing operational variability. Better alarms drive the operator’s capability to keep the plant on-line and produce saleable material. Poor alarm systems distract the operator, cause overload in responses and, at worst, don’t prompt at all for necessary actions.

PPCL’s Modern Alarm Rationalization technique, whose n-dimensional geometry utilises our unique Geometric Process Control technology and is based on Operating Envelopes and Alarm Performance Prediction, has been in use for 25 years in plants worldwide across all the process industries: oil and gas, petrochemicals, chemicals, pharmaceuticals and power generation.

  • It’s helping our customers make money by reducing operational variability, which contributes to a reduction in operating costs and, in cases where throughput is increased, to a reduction in the unit costs of production.
  • It is able to predict alarm performance - which avoids waiting for several weeks (while other project steps are completed) until the new limits created by the old method are put into use in the control room, and only then discovering that, although they are different, they are no better than what was there before.
  • It also helps our customers achieve compliance with industry standards/guidelines for alarm management: ISA 18.2, IEC 62682 and EEMUA 191.

PPCL is offering a no fee, no obligation demonstration of our innovative process control software using your own data. Operating companies: send us a sample of your process history data and your current alarm limits, and our powerful multi-variable modelling will produce a view of your alarm limits super-imposed on actual process operation.
