Maximising the intelligence of metering in a data driven energy transition

26th June 2024 at 10:30am

Industrial sites in the UK are beginning to respond to the opportunities and challenges associated with energy and carbon transition. These challenges identify a need for investment in metering, data collection and utilisation to optimise operations and support the design of new low carbon solutions.

Modern heat and energy metering systems can provide over 10 useful multi-variables and diagnostics to support the business, therefore digitalisation is essential to maximise the intelligence within them and optimise operations.

Join Wes to discover how intelligent metering provides real insights into performance, enhancing energy efficiency and paving the way for cost-effective proactive maintenance.

Improving productivity by changing the Maintenance, Repair and Operations (MRO) supply chain dynamics

The supply chain continues to be one of the major issues that manufacturing businesses are facing. In late 2023 ERIKS commissioned the Manufacturing Indirect Supply Chain Survey to look deeper at this problem - and this webinar explores The MRO Supply Chain Report that was subsequently produced in association with the IET.

Join IP&E and ERIKS on 1 May at 10:30am to explore the most significant findings from the report and to discuss potential solutions and alternative approaches from the presenters’ extensive experience.

Among the report’s revelations is the direct link between unscheduled downtime and the operation of the engineering stores, supply chain, and MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Operations) procurement. The survey data clearly demonstrated that in 2023 the main causes of downtime in UK manufacturing was due to spares availability and lead time issues.

Design and implementation of safety systems: Are we still out of control?

The seminal HSE publication Out of control: Why control systems go wrong and how to prevent failure was published 29 years ago and is still one of the most cited publications around functional safety. It showed that a majority of failures had their roots in decisions made before the plant or equipment was even constructed.

Controlling systematic errors during the full lifecycle of a safety system is vital to ensure that a safety function will operate correctly when required. Errors introduced at the specification, design and implementation lifecycle phase can be particularly difficult to foresee and may only be revealed during a ‘real demand’ unless actions are taken to identify them.

Over recent years there have been considerable efforts in reducing human error in the operational phases by concentrating on procedures, training, systems and software packages that prevent deviation during commissioning, verification and proof testing. The same cannot be said about activities during the design phase.

We will look at how design errors can impact the ability of a SIF to perform its safety function and how to reduce the incidence of design errors and discuss some of the ways in which reducing human error in the design phase can be achieved, with real world examples and particular emphasis on the selection of measurement transmitters.

Practical steps to overcome labour shortages in the manufacturing industry

Although the manufacturing industry has been grappling with labour shortages for years, the challenge has been accelerated by events such as the Covid pandemic, Brexit, geopolitical disruptions and an ageing workforce.

According to PWC’s Annual Manufacturing Report 2020, British Manufacturers are facing the largest shortfall of skilled workers since 1989. Furthermore, a survey by Deloitte/Manufacturing Institute, projects that 2.69 million more manufacturing workers will retire by 2030.

The labour challenge, coupled with on-going supply chain disruptions has resulted in procurement, safety and supply chain leaders adapting a reactive, rather than a proactive, strategic approach to contractor sourcing and risk management.

To minimise project delays, health and safety risks and reputational damage, manufacturers must adopt a robust approach to contractor management and build partnerships with safe, credible and compliant contractors.

Join our sector supply chain expert, Rebecca Sperti to explore how to:

  • Re-build the foundations of your contractor network
  • Adopt a pro-active, not reactive approach to contractor management
  • Put strategic sourcing and pre-qualification at the heart of your contractor management strategy

Strategies for Managing Supplier Risk in Manufacturing

In response to ongoing market, economic and regulatory changes, manufacturers have had to re-evaluate their entire supply chain network of contractors and suppliers, from tier one and beyond. Whether you work in heavy industry or more specialist operations you must ensure that your supply chain network is safe, sustainable, and operating ethically.

Deeper supply chains coupled with increased pressure to adapt to heightened safety and sustainability regulations means that manufacturers need greater levels of control, quality, and visibility of their entire supply chain.

Robust sourcing and pre-qualification are at the heart of a compliant supply chain, enabling you to expose weak links that could cause harm to your business, your people, and the planet. Are you confident that you have the visibility you need to comply?

oin our sector supply chain expert, Rebecca Sperti on Tuesday 14th February at 11:30 GMT where we will explore unique challenges to your business and provide insight on how to gain greater control, visibility and buy-in from your supply chain network.

Improve the safety and efficiency of hydrogen production or carbon capture process with the right instrumentation

Energy transition and decarbonisation are essential to achieve the ambitious climate target of net zero by the middle of the century. Investments to reduce emissions are accelerating the use of carbon capture and storage as well as the adoption of hydrogen as a preferred fuel source across multiple sectors.

In carbon capture and in the production of both blue and green hydrogen, instrumentation plays a critical role. The correct measurement technology delivers real-time information from the field, allowing tighter process control for safe and efficient operation of the plant.

Covering topics from post-combustion carbon capture plants in Norway to coke ovens in steel mills in Germany, Neil Jackson, Endress+Hauser’s Oil & Gas Manager, will highlight real-world solutions such as blending control of hydrogen into natural gas and ensuring the quality of the feed water to electrolysers.

Reducing Maintenance Time: Implementing Online Monitoring & Remote Lubrication with Ultrasound

Reducing the time needed for maintenance tasks is fundamental in today’s industrial facilities. Monitoring the condition of bearings, and especially lubrication, are among the most time-demanding tasks. Now, new solutions using ultrasound technology promise to dramatically reduce maintenance time, by coupling ultrasonic sensors, network-connected devices and single point lubricators. With this type of solution in place, maintenance teams can not only lubricate remotely, based on condition, but also reduce the time spent with lubrication by 95%!

How can you ensure that your employees truly have a safety voice?

Without an inclusive culture, many organisations struggle to remain complaint in health and safety, especially if they have a large, dispersed workforce and multiple contractors to contend with.

Organisations need to move beyond what they consider basic requirements, as effective health and safety doesn’t happen behind desks. Involving employees more widely in promoting a positive, inclusive safety culture, and encouraging them to actively talk safety can significantly increase levels engagement and drive improvements in safety behaviours.

During this webinar, presenters will discuss:

  • Common challenges faced in embedding an inclusive safety culture
  • Moving towards a “one culture” approach
  • How you can promote an inclusive safety culture through health and safety software to improve safety performance and behaviours.
