The safe and effective operation of process plant and power stations relies on automation i.e. the instrumentation and control systems, operator consoles and the human operators who oversee all phases of operation from start-up to shut-down. At any time, warnings may sound, or show on display screens, status indicators may light up, or alarms can trip. Effective management of alarms is critical to plant safety, as a number of high-profile incidents in recent decades has shown.
The effectiveness of on-line analysers can mean significant operational benefits for users, but good analyser performance depends on careful specification and maintenance.
EEMUA has developed best practices for the maintenance of on-line analysers, and its publication on this subject has been successfully adopted by industry during the past five or more years.
