Supporting the rapid growth of industry in South Korea, Emerson recently held an Emerson CONNECT event for industry professionals to meet, share ideas, exchange knowledge and sharpen their leading-edge skills. Held at the Holiday Inn Incheon Songdo Hotel on June 26, 2018, more than 60 professionals from a wide range of industries surveyed the newest developments in technology for their markets.
Among the cost-saving and even life-saving developments that interested attendees was the wireless installation of toxic gas monitoring equipment that can protect people and property without the burdensome costs of wired installations.
Across the world, plants and facilities have experienced threats from hydrogen sulfide gas, such as in an incident in Colorado, where toxic vapors were suspected in the deaths of three oil and gas workers. In fact, H2S gas is a risk in many industries and applications, including upstream oil and gas production, crude oil storage and tank farms, refineries and petrochemical production, pulp and paper plants, and water and wastewater treatment.
At Emerson CONNECT, attendees learned about the ease and cost-effectiveness of wireless toxic gas monitoring that can save more than US$10,000 per monitoring point. Gas monitors can be placed where they need to be without the addition of costly infrastructure, and they can be easily moved when needed. The monitors integrate with Emerson WirelessHART networks, feeding cost and life-saving information back to the central location before service personnel are ever dispatched.
In addition to this event in South Korea, Emerson holds several Emerson CONNECT seminars throughout the Asia Pacific region each year. Emerson CONNECT events are part of a worldwide mesh of customer education and interaction opportunities that support Emerson’s pledge to customers to Consider It Solved.
