Yokogawa's UPM100 Power Monitor provides overall factory power monitoring operations and the DX1000 Paperless Recorder for temperature recording in refining furnaces.
Yokogawa’s CENTUM VP Distributed Control System is currently being used to process over 30% to Australia’s total gold output, placing it in the enviable position as the control system standard for gold processing.
- Smooth and safe migration to CENTUM VP enhances production efficiency at major Australian gold mine.
- The HMI stations instaled at the central control room, training system, primary crusher, workshop, and office are all connected via thesame communication bus.
- Configuration of complicated procedures in Exapilot leads to operational excellence.
- DENKA wanted to standardize the operation, reduce workload and prevent operator errors.
Yokogawa's integrated asset management system that combines FDT technology with a device management tool is being used to achieve real productivity advantages and savings in maintenance and service operations.
Maintaining the reliable performance of a furnace fan allows operators to avoid wasting large batches, which sometimes require days of heat-treat processing.
Yokogawa’s distributed temperature sensors ensure comprehensive monitoring of thermal events in real-time, limiting facility damage by decreasing the risk of fire/duct explosions in exhaust air/fume ducts, allowing for early detection and quick response.
Reducing waste in the separator and electrode drying furnaces with Yokogawa’s distributed temperature sensors ensure comprehensive monitoring of thermal events in real-time.
Most zinc are produced at hydrometallurgically, where a high-grade zinc product can be obtained and valuable metals mixed in the raw material can be recovered. In the hydrometallurgy, the raw material of zinc concentrate is roasted and then dissolved in sulfuric acid to remove impurities. The process called leaching and pH control of the leachate is important.
Yokogawa’s latest generation of ADMAG AXG Series is the most suitable magnetic flowmeter with adhesion level diagnosis and dual-frequency excitation method provides stable flow measurement even under high flow noise in the severe applications like the flow of aluminum slurries.
Data critical for quality control in aluminum casting is monitored and recorded by the DX1000/DX2000. Various kinds of data from a holding furnace are batch recorded, and data during occurrence of alarms is recorded separately.
A belt conveyor fire detection solution employing the DTSX distributed optical fiber temperature sensor can greatly reduce crises that can threaten a company's survival.
With industrial and economic development comes increasingly large and advanced power plants and factories. Nevertheless, we find many cases where the original cables, cable tunnels, and other components of the power infrastructure have languished under continuous operation.
In this Yokogawa RAP Best Practices eBook, you’ll discover how our wealth of knowledge about Integrated Safe Systems and Control of Work is available to help you and your teams design and implement a system that best suits your needs.
The world of process automation is governed by procedures. While we like to refer to the process industries as being largely "continuous", this could not be further from the truth. Process manufacturing is constantly in flux.
The automation suppliers that will be successful in the long term will be those that effectively address application or industry specific problems for end users with a value proposition that cannot be ignored. These problems exist throughout the process industries today, and they won't be solved by simply offering a product, but through a combination of hardware, software, services, application expertise, and knowledge.
Smart devices, like Yokogawa’s line of Total Insight transmitters and flowmeters contribute to Digital Transformation during operations and throughout the lifecycle of the instrument.
