Metso has announced a new version of its Metso Expertune PlantTriage control loop monitoring software. The newest version further improves process plant operational efficiency, reduces cybersecurity risks, and helps to improve profitability.
This version provides a clearer view of PID (Proportional-Integral-Derivative) tuning benefits via a new Performance Evaluation dashboard and a Performance Summary panel. These features show the effect new tuning parameters will have on valve duty, relative response time, robustness, and performance.
In addition, the PlantTriage Level Wizard is an advanced tool that tunes level controllers for surge tanks. The purpose of surge tanks is to maintain a constant flow to the next stage of the process. Proper tuning guarantees maximum use of surge, while preventing the tank from emptying or overflowing. The Level Wizard helps to get the balance just right.
The latest version also includes advances in cybersecurity. Users may now choose encryption on communications with PlantTriage servers. Other improvements make the browser interface more secure, robust, and less vulnerable to attack.
