A core element of the model-based mPower application suite, VisaOM (Movement Monitoring) is designed to track raw materials, feed-stocks and products through an entire plant for continuous and batch-based processes.
Incorporating mass balancing techniques VisasOM interprets raw measurements and other data in terms of movements of material inside the refinery. VisaOM is able to accurately track movements, even when there are multiple flows in and out of individual tanks. VisaOM records data on material stocks, material movements and equipment usage.
VisaOM provides operators with accurate live information on the material movements between tanks and other process units. A comprehensive alarm system is provided to warn operators of abnormal and hazardous operations. Using VisaOM operators can supervise the equipment safely, accurately and productively. Information can be output in reports for use by human or computer systems.
The system readily interfaces with any external systems installed on a site including DCS, PIMS, LIMS, PLC, ERP, MRP, etc.
- Although developed for use in oil refineries, VisaOM is applicable in any plant handling fluid materials
- The model-based construction of VisaOM gives it significant advantages over simpler systems
- VisaOM is particularly designed to operate in refineries where full automation of all pumps and valves does not exist
Exaquantum is a comprehensive Plant Information Management System (PIMS) incorporating a data historian for real time and historical data, alarms, and events along with aggregations, role-based views and KPIs, graphical HMI, trends, reports, and integration with different systems. It provides a cetralized repository for users throughout the plant and is the foundation for most of Yokogawa's production, safety, and alarm optimization solutions and operator effectiveness solutions. Exaquantum can acquire data from all facets of a process and transform that data into easily usable, high-value actionable information that can be made avaialable across the enterprise.
VisaOM provides tank farm and material movement operators with accurate live tracking of movements delivering daily book-closing reports using mass balancing with data reconcilliaton. It provides a low cost alternative for stock and movement accounting of continous processes that have no automation, are semi-automated, or are even fully automated. It enables optimization of processing strategies through accurate material property and accounting reporting, early warnings using adaptive alarming, and a breadth of connectivity interfaces with control, gauging, accounting, ERP, and lab information systems.
