Are you fully compliant with ISA-18.2 and IEC62682? This webinar from April 2020 will show you how!

Processes that require more than one operating envelope to describe all of their operation have generally been restricted to tracking a single variable, such as reaction temperature, through what are thought to be the most important phases of the process. Operator alarms are often limited to ‘lumping’ alarm limits together from different steps and phases so that there is only one set of limits in use. The alarms they generate are not only wrong most of the time but may even conflict with SIL-rated safety alarms. All of this is unnecessary and costly.

In this webinar you will learn how to isolate the operating envelopes for each of the phases or steps of a batch whether it is a recipe-driven multi-phase and multi-stage batch process, a fed-batch fermentation process, a cyclic ‘continuous’ process or a multi-grade polymer process with one or more transition operating envelopes between product grades.

The webinar is intended for process and control engineers in plant operations. It will be based on PPCL’s CVE (offline) and CPM (online) software which utilises our visual multi-dimensional geometry technology, Geometric Process Control. You will not need maths in the form of algebra, calculus or statistics to use these products, only process understanding. You will learn even more about your process as you proceed through analysis and implementation of a real-time operator guidance model, which I will do during the webinar. PPCL’s unique Operating Envelope method for alarm rationalization is steadily establishing itself in the continuous process industries for delivering much better alarms in fewer man-hours for less rationalization project cost and leading to better process operation with efficiency gains and operating cost savings. The same method applies to batch processes too - and delivers the same benefits.
