Monitoring process water

The site of a pharmaceutical industry in Ireland is a strategic manufacturing plant that produces a range of bulk active ingredients for use in the formulation of prescription drugs. The company contacted Emerson to solve a problem: the existing water storage facility was too small and had no measurement instrumentation in place. Two new storage tanks were installed and there was no existing cabling in place. A wired installation would have required new power and data cables to be buried in trenches. By adopting a wireless solution these significant costs were avoided. Ten Smart Wireless devices by Emerson were installed including six Rosemount pressure transmitters, two Rosemount flow transmitters and two Rosemount level transmitters. The Smart Wireless technology integrates seamlessly with the existing automation equipment.
