Leak detection in power plants is critical. Unfortunately, there are many plants in operation today that do not have a sufficient detection system in place at their location for costly leaks.
Hydrogen is key to decarbonization – in the chemical industry as well as for developed nations. However, while it is relatively easy and cheap to produce, pure H2 is notoriously difficult to transport and store. Most methods require high operational and/or energy costs.
The answer might not be so obvious when deciding to use pre-engineered “Cartesian Robots” versus more modularly designed gantries.
Leaks are a pernicious issue in natural gas pipelines. As hydrogen can escape even more easily than methane through the tiniest holes, cracks, and weld seams, the transport and eventual storage of this gas is one of the major barriers to wider adoption of this gas as a fuel and feedstock. Hydrogen permeation and embrittlement only exacerbate the problem.
Selecting the proper positioner is critical. The wrong decision can lead to unnecessary costs on one end of the spectrum and the need for a replacement on the other.

Historically there were two actuation options: Electro-Mechanical Actuators (EMA) and Traditional Hydraulics. But now there is a better option!
In the world of natural gas liquification, turbine trip valves play a major role. There may be no piece of equipment that is more important to the safety of the plant and its personnel than a turbine trip valve.
Actuators are a critical component to the automation process. In fact, most of the heavy lifting for liquids, gases and discrete motion control is done by actuators. There is an important distinction, however, between actuator applications: process and discrete.
Industrial furnaces come in many shapes and sizes and are used across a wide variety of applications. As one would expect, monitoring the temperature of an industrial furnace is critical and is accomplished by measuring the temperature of the tubes inside the furnace.
