Additive controller offers precise blending of petrochemical products in hazardous areas

Paul Boughton

Honeywell's Fusion4 MSC-A is a controller that uses technology similar to today’s mobile-phone apps to help ensure more efficient and safer petrochemical handling operations.

The controller is operated using on-screen icons, which reduces training time and improves accuracy. The interface delivers detailed process data, resulting in superior operational monitoring.

The Fusion4 MSC-A offers the most advanced functionality of any additive controller available. Key features include:

* It is the only device in the world capable of live data transfer in hazardous areas. Safe, secure two-way data communication with the handheld Fusion4 Local Access Device allows rapid transfer of transaction data, configuration files and calibration records.

* Advanced process monitoring and control for up to 12 streams simultaneously at the load rack.

* Detailed transactional data, alarms, diagnostics and calibration event logging for a secure audit trail for business and regulatory auditing.

* Fast, efficient management of multiple systems and sites.

* Compatibility with Honeywell Enraf’s safe area device monitoring software package Fusion4 Portal for remote monitoring and configuration of hazardous area devices, as well as MID-approved bill of lading printing, scheduled summary printing, alarm management and transaction audit trails to boost efficiency and compliance.

The Fusion4 MSC-A can be supplied as a stand-alone device or coupled with additive injection hardware for a complete off-the-shelf additive solution. Allowing any downstream oil and gas operation to add stand-alone additive injection capability, it seamlessly integrates with industry standard terminal automation systems and load computers and avoids the need for expensive alterations to existing equipment and infrastructure.
