How NOA can add value for process analytics

When it comes to NOA, there is much talk about leaving the classic automation pyramid and the resulting consequences, especially with regard to (data) security. There is no question that this must be ensured. Many initiatives are on their way. This blog article aims to show why these efforts are worthwhile. The PAT demonstrator, which was presented at the NAMUR Annual General Meeting in 2018, serves as an example here.

PAT-Demonstrator – NOA is the ideal partner

Where NOA comes into play: If process analysis technology delivers more and more complex data and experience sometimes requires changes, then we need an additional piece of intelligence. This is not properly stored in the analyzer. Because the type of intelligence is also determined by the process. In the control system, the additional data becomes tight; changes are possible there, but not necessarily popular. A separate software, for example in the form of an app, frees us from these restrictions and gives us the necessary flexibility for specific adaptations.

System integration – when less is more

Yokogawa has been making ASI – Analyzer System Integration – successful for more than 50 years. But in addition to these so-called greenfield solutions, Yokogawa also offers customized, smaller solutions for brownfield systems if required. So it’s a kind of ASI light.

Full steam ahead into digitalisation

Full steam ahead into digitalisation: Just as older analogue model steam locomotives – i.e. brownfield models – can be operated digitally with appropriate retrofitting, proven analogue sensors and analysers can also be combined into one system with a data management system, which is used as a gateway, the worlds of analogue and digital systems.

12th seminar for doctoral students – dialog consistent with the WG-PAT philosophy

This year’s doctoral seminar was again held in keeping with the philosophy of AK-PAT (Working Group of the Division Analytical Chemistry within the GDCh), which maintains close ties to DECHEMA’s Process, Apparatus and Plant Engineering group. Exchange between the different participants from teaching, industry and manufacturers, especially vertically, i.e. exchange between experienced professionals and academic beginners. The unifying topic was a core topic of spectroscopy: “Multivariate Data Analysis”.

SBA, ASI, PAT or piano playing – they’re all based on the nature of learning

Analyzer System Integration – Synaptic Business Automation You could say that complexity and ever shorter forecasting periods are two scourges of the modern day and age. Trend based models move out of the predictable range faster and faster from the

Process gas chromatograph steps up the pace

The design of the Yokogawa GC8000 process gas chromatograph is slightly different from that of many of its rivals in the market. The pressure controllers for the carrier gas are not mounted externally but…

The unbearable lightness of maintenance

Maintenance is a must. No-one would dispute that. It makes no difference whether you’re an owner of a fully automatic coffee maker or process analyzers. Nobody expects a measuring instrument to keep on working for an eternity without a single problem, delivering
