CCC’s TrainView II to embed OSIsoft’s PI System to enhance preventative maintenance and root-cause analysis.
SAN LEANDRO, CALIFORNIA -- JUNE 16, 2016
OSIsoft, a global leader for enabling operational intelligence, has announced that Compressor Controls Corporation (CCC) will integrate OSIsoft’s PI System into its TrainView II turbomachinery control system. With TrainView II, CCC customers will be able to better prevent process disturbances, cut costs, and identify maintenance issues.
CCC, a subsidiary of Roper Technologies, has been a leading supplier of turbomachinery control solutions for over 40 years. The company’s systems are widely used by upstream, midstream and downstream companies to control the complex process of chilling and distributing liquefied natural gas as well as by copper and steel companies to fine tune air flow in their production processes. Historically, CCC customers had to maintain separate hardware and software systems for managing and analyzing the high-volume, high-speed data regarding equipment vibration or shaft orbits.
With the release of TrainView II integrated with OSIsoft’s PI System, critical real-time data and data analysis can be combined in the operational system, thereby reducing costs, complexity, overhead employee training and systems. The PI System can capture over 400,000 events per second, a sampling rate that high performance vibration diagnostics applications can require. By consolidating real-time and historical data management into a single platform, TrainView II also allows CCC customers to improve preventative maintenance, accelerate root-cause detection and cut the time and costs required for conducting analytics.
“The increasing ability to store and correlate high frequency data will enable PI System users to dramatically reduce the time required to identify machinery malfunctions from hours, if not days, to minutes. We are very excited about Total Train Analytics™ and the ground-breaking ability to prevent process disturbances, control events, and machine health changes at millisecond resolution in a single platform. PI System users can now leverage their existing platform and further expand the return on their investment,” said Pier Parisi, the Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at CCC.
SETPOINT, a Roper subsidiary company specializing in condition-based maintenance systems and software, also incorporates the PI System into its award-winning products for oil & gas, mining and power.
The PI System: Powering Operational Intelligence
Deployed at over 19,000 sites worldwide, OSIsoft’s PI System is one of the world’s most widely used software technologies for the Industrial Internet of Things. The PI System captures operational data regarding energy consumption, asset utilization or complex process flows from thousands of sensors and other sources across an organization. The PI System then transforms this data into rich information streams that can be accessed by plant engineers, executives, data researchers or integrated into supply chain or productivity applications to save money, improve safety and productivity and make better long-term decisions.
More than 1,000 leading utilities, 95 percent of the largest oil and gas companies, numerous government agencies and more than 65 percent of the Fortune 500 industrial companies rely on technology from OSIsoft and its partners. Worldwide, more than 1.5 billion sensor-based data streams are managed by the PI System.
“Data—and fast access to data—will increasingly play a vital role in industrial operations. Data is one of the most important assets a company has,” said Aaron Pratt, Global Accounts and Channels at OSIsoft. “We’re very proud to be working with Compressor Controls to help their customers develop a more mature data infrastructure and achieve a competitive edge.”
