After installing our DAS on the four refinery flare gas chromatographs (GC's) with the most downtime, the refinery was able to better track and manage their data and saw a 48% reduction in CEM downtime and 83% reduction in unscheduled downtime.
“The refinery experienced difficulties caused by hard-to-read pass/fail emails, missed alarms and lack of visibility. ”
“The achievement was that we ended up saving over 500 PM man hours and reduced CGA hours by 50% since the installation. The CEMS downtime was down 48% with an 83% reduction in CEM downtime. It's been impressive what we've been able to do.”
The refinery installed StackVision on the four refinery flare gas chromatographs (GC's) that had the most downtime and were not providing operators with much data. The GC's were connected to an analyzer network for remote access that utilized MODBUS for communication and allowed for remote calibrations and CGA's.
