Making the Modern Plant Digital, Safer and More Predictable
Series: Optimizing Plant Performance
Time: 2:30 PM – 3:15 PM CT

Digital is clearly the way, with instrumentation and controls reliant on the latest generation of devices to monitor and balance plant operation. Predictive analytics help avoid unplanned outage time, while safety standards get ever more stringent.
