Valmet’s new Industrial Internet solution helps to monitor gas transportation containers and their pressure data as well as the amount of gas and energy without any pressure or level measurement instruments.
Valmet has developed an Industrial Internet solution for collecting critical measurement data related to gas transportation containers. Accurate data collection with no traditional physical measurements improves the safety of explosive containers transporting, for example, methane or hydrogen. Additionally, it saves costs and provides information about container contents for logistics.
The new container management solution complements the Valmet DNA Integrated Operations data collection application. The patent-pending solution has been developed in cooperation with Yepzon, a technology company that provides location devices and services.
“During transportation and in temporary storage, the containers are on their own, leading to a lack of material data due to inadequate monitoring. With this innovative solution, it is possible to monitor the containers and their pressure data as well as the amount of gas and energy without any pressure or level measurement instruments. Experience gained from trials in Finland and other Nordic countries with the new solutions have been positive,” says Jani Hautaluoma, senior business manager, Process Automation, Valmet.

Technical Information About The Solution
The measurement system developed by Valmet collects measurement data from the loading processes of the gas transportation containers and their places of use. Additionally, it collects location and temperature data produced by an ATEX-certified device installed in the gas transportation container. ATEX covers equipment for potentially explosive atmospheres. The system collects and calculates data to determine accurate and comparable measurement information.
