Simplifying Effective Control Room Alarm Management
At the 2023 API Pipeline, Control Room And Cybernetics Conference, EnerSys presented valuable information on how to simplify alarm management in the control room.
Most alarm management practices and software tools were developed for process industries. Pipeline control room alarm management isn’t as complex when compared to the process industry, but it poses a different set of problems.
The frequent repetition of alarms and standardized type of sites can make it difficult to manage. Remote facilities also add a level of difficulty because time becomes a key consideration when executing alarm rationalization and documentation. Likewise, leak alarm response is another alarm management challenge, particularly given the considerations around the new rupture mitigation regulatory requirements (49 CFR 192, 49 CFR 195).
This challenge impacts how you identify, alarm, and respond to a rupture, as well as how you address the alarm management practice around rupture mitigation.
In this white paper, we cover the common challenges and applicable solutions for effective alarm management in pipeline control rooms without making it needlessly complex.
Now, you can access this whitepaper to learn more about how to apply these practical steps to simplifying alarm management in your control room.
