Metso upgrades Expertune PlantTriage software

Metso has updated its Expertune PlantTriage control loop monitoring software with advanced analysis tools and improved features. The company says the latest version improves process plant operational efficiency, reduces cybersecurity risks and improves profitability.

The solution is intended to provide a clearer view of proportional integral derivative tuning benefit through 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.

PlantTriage Level Wizard tunes level controllers for surge tanks, which maintain a constant flow to the next stage of the process. Proper tuning ensures maximum use of surge and prevents the tank from emptying or overflowing.

Steve Obermann, senior product manager, says: “Version 18 offers interaction analysis with greater resolution. Two analysis tools, Process Interaction Map and Interaction Hot Spots, are used to find the underlying root cause of an upset or event.”

Additionally, the upgraded tool allows users to choose encryption on communications with PlantTriage servers. Other improve­ments make the browser interface more secure, robust, and less vulnerable to attack.

Expertune PlantTriage monitors plant control loops 24 hours a day, diagnosing issues, and prioritising opportunities for improvement. It can also be integrated with a plant historian for access to process data.
