Qualitative and Effective Approach for Technical Process Automation
New Line for Industries
In the modern sense, industrial automation comprises utilization of control systems and information technologies to manage various industrial processes and equipment in order to substitute human labor. Automation has become possible due to a broad combination of different technologies, such as implementation of electrical, electronic, mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic devices and computer engineering. Precedently automation used to be applied to achieve increasing in productivity and saving costs. These days automation potentiates quality improvement and provides production technologies flexibility.
In general, industrial automation aims to decrease operating cost regarding human operators by minimizing a necessity in employees engaging, improve significantly the productivity of the company by evolving a continuous operating mode (machinery can work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year in contrast to people as a resource), it reduces number of human faults and errors associated with fatigue effect in order to unify quality in all circumstances, also automation excludes a demand in employees training which results in a better flexibility of manufacturing process. In addition, data collection automation allows collecting key production information of an advanced accuracy which contributes to a better decision making. Finally, industrial automation helps to negate health risks of hazardous conditions by excluding physical presence of employees at dangerous areas. To summarize all the above mentioned, industrial automation leads to a ponderable cut in expenditure of the company and brings measurable benefits in increased productivity, quality and safety at low costs.
O&G Companies Go into Future Technologies
According to the expert forecast, automation will be one of the key development drivers up till 2025 for oil and gas industry. Digital nature of modern oilfield equipment operation enable automation to explicate to a brand new level. Although there is a view that the global economy is slowing as a whole, world’s industrial sector is about to face a new revolution due to a recent accelerated progress of cyber-physical systems. Profit for oil and gas companies in this case is undisputable: onsite operations are frequently connected with severe labor conditions and hazardous environment, and the assets might be situated in hardly accessible locations, while the equipment must undergo regular inspections strictly. All this creates a market for advanced technological solutions for remote control and monitoring of the equipment onsite providing that the data on the facilities operations should be provided accurately and expeditiously in order to ensure quality and immediacy of decisions.
It should be also noted that some parts of the oil and gas sector are more adjustable for automation than others. Some automated processes are already successfully implemented within the sector, such as automated drilling, and proceed their progress to make more wells economically feasible and provide an increase in the production wells number and an opportunity for drilling of smaller targets. Oilfield service companies have already got onto the automation technology growth to capitalize on the future demand. And O&G companies are now implementing some proven approaches and techniques experienced already by the manufacturing sector to achieve a better efficiency of the operations. Today oil and gas companies are able to obtain access to the most complete information from outlying areas due SCADA systems, collecting data from various sensors, cameras, drones, etc. A great contribution is also made by Internet of Things and edge computing technologies implied in oil and gas, that are about to make a big breakthrough. The bigger number of information sources is processed, the better quality analytics can be performed and the greater insight into operations performance can be achieved.
Triol ITA and Its Field-Proven Approach
Triol Corporation offers not only products but opportunities. TriolCorp has developed an efficient software-based solution, functionality of which allows to subsume it to SCADA systems. Triol Interactive Technology Assistant (ITA) is a unique development used for online monitoring and control of equipment at remote sites. Triol ITA can unite different equipment into one system for centralized control. The technology is designed to simplify reporting at enterprises via automated reporting on the whole system and on individual equipment. Triol ITA allows creating a wide range of instruments for efficient management of facilities 24/7 due to mobile devices application.
Triol ITA has the following functional:
- displaying a list of products with object-specific binding;
- viewing and editing installation parameters online;
- performing remote start and stop of equipment;
- monitoring of the main electrical and technological parameters of the technological line;
- graphic output of the archive data for the selected electrical and technological parameters;
- forming summary tables for particular objects or the whole system;
- emergency and alarm signaling for cases of parameter overrange beyond set thresholds.
From the technical point of view, Triol ITA is designed in the most convenient for the users manner. Its system consists of top-level software (client part of the system and WEB-software with an intelligible interface), server (for data exchange between the routers and the top-level), low-level software (MT01 router and its software connecting the controller and sensors via RS232 / RS485).
Advanced automation technology can fundamentally change the concept of the oilfield. To find more about the innovative solutions in the scope of automation for oil production, please contact our managers to launch future technologies even today.
