  8. The Power of Many – Expanding Possibilities of Remote Connection

    Leave a Comment
    Establishing a Remote Connection to your oxidizer is one of the most critical service enhancements you can make.

    Manufacturers understand that establishing a remote connection with pollution control systems and process equipment is essential for business continuity. For Anguil clients with remote connection capability, it is both a lifeline during system upsets as well as a “force-multiplier,” akin to getting the experience and knowledge of several engineers on site for the price of one.

    How is Remote Connection Typically Used?

    Anguil generally uses remote assistance in our Field Service and Engineering departments to connect with equipment controls and make program changes orTechnician Monitoring Oxidizer Remotely perform troubleshooting. Essentially, we can do many things remotely and have the same result as standing at the control panel onsite, such as watching the machine in operation, seeing alarms happen, and diagnosing issues. Once connected to a customer’s PLC, Anguil can monitor all connected instrumentation. Using this information, we can troubleshoot issues including operational efficiency and the inability to start or operate the equipment.

    We can accomplish even more equipment troubleshooting if the customer has an employee we can direct on what to physically check. In these cases, we can solve problems very fast, saving a potentially costly service visit or solving an equipment emergency when time cannot wait for the arrival of our service personnel.

    Remote Connection in Uncertain Times

    While remote connection has been a standard inclusion with Anguil equipment for many years, it gained elevated significance during global pandemic uncertainty when travel and many businesses were shut down. While Anguil remained open as an essential business, remote connection enabled us to stay connected to our customers and even support them in new ways, including “site” supervision.

    For almost every aftermarket project requiring equipment work, Anguil sends a Field Service Engineer (FSE) to site for project supervision. However, during the COVID-19 global pandemic, Anguil was unable to go to a customer’s site due to COVID-19 safety restrictions at the plant. The project was a complex internal heat exchanger replacement, which required the removal of a large portion of ductwork attached to the system, electrical, and structural steel. This undertaking normally would have required an FSE onsite for up to a month.

    The pandemic restrictions certainly presented a challenge to our aftermarket team, but at Anguil, we do whatever it takes to deliver for our customers.

    Remote Connection Saves the Day in a New Way

    Fortunately, the customer had remote connection established with Anguil. Our Aftermarket team decided to leverage this capability in a new way: remote installation supervision. With the customer onboard, our team strategized on the best execution strategy. A technical and mechanical package was put together

    for the contractor to follow and conversations during the installation were on an as required basis. Most importantly, the remote installation approach offered additional flexibility with staffing: instead of assigning an FSE for project supervision, the Aftermarket team assigned the Project Engineer.

    There were multiple benefits to this approach as the Project Engineer has much more intimate knowledge on the work being done. He completed many Solidworks models and drawings to guide the customer on how to remove and replace the heat exchanger. The Anguil Engineer was also able to monitor their

    progress remotely at various points with a check in video call and resolve technical issues with the customer at their pace. At the same time, sending the Project Engineer to site to supervise would not be ideal for Anguil or our other Aftermarket customers as he could not keep up on his other projects while on site.

    Remote installation supervision also softened the blow of other project complications. The customer faced many personnel and weather issues during installation. COVID-19 shut the plant down in the middle of the project for two weeks. A snowstorm shut the plant down for a couple days. If Anguil had an FSE onsite during this time, they would have been stuck in a hotel for that amount of time.

    Across the board, leveraging remote connection was a win-win for everyone. Due to the nature of this project and the savings incurred during remote assistance, Anguil was able to issue a credit to the customer worth over $12,000! The heat exchanger installation was successful and the customer was very pleased.

  9. Staying Ahead of Evolving EtO Regulations

    Leave a Comment
    Catalytic OxidizerEtO is everywhere – in the news, on the minds of the community, and at the forefront of regulators attention.
    Are you ready for the increased compliance challenges?

    Why is everyone talking about ethylene oxide (EtO)? According to recent scientific studies, EtO is a more dangerous carcinogen than previously thought. Results from the latest National Air Toxics Assessment (NATA) have made EtO an increased focus of concern for the EPA and state regulators. For sterilization companies, this understandably makes you concerned about the safety of your employees and community, as well as your reputation.

    In many cases, the traditional abatement technologies such as wet scrubbers and dry sorbents cannot meet the new EtO destruction requirements.

    How does your abatement strategy measure up? How do you ensure that your abatement technology is up-to-date and meeting compliance requirements? With so much to lose, why take the risk with an unproven supplier?


    A Proven EtO Abatement Equipment Design

    Catalytic Oxidizers are one of the most widely accepted control technologies available to control VOC emissions from the EtO sterilization processes.Catalytic Oxidizer Combining our flagship catalytic oxidizer with a peak shaver, Anguil’s EtO abatement systems have helped clients achieve greater than 99% destruction efficiency and limited EtO concentrations to under one part-per-million by volume.

    Anguil systems ensure zero leakage of EtO from the oxidizer and safe operation by integrating the peak shaver, a packed tower counter-flow water scrubber that absorbs ethylene oxide gas into the water by ensuring a high contact area between the gas and the water, preventing unsafe, high concentration conditions.

Anguil is now trailblazing the technological advancement of environmental equipment with the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) to improve safety, reliability, and maintenance efforts.

    webinar infoThis functionality allows personnel inside and outside the plant to communicate with your abatement system using native programming and an internet connection. Real-time data logging, event reporting, and alarm notification are just some of the benefits to IIoT. It is one of the easiest ways to expedite troubleshooting, reduce downtime, and enhance the value of routine preventive maintenance.

    What will you learn in this webinar?
    • How can you be sure your environmental technologies are in compliance?
    • What is the risk of not leveraging sensors and smart devices in decision making?

    Manufacturing facilities are increasingly being designed with sensing devices that employ a central control system to remotely monitor and adjust equipment within the plant and beyond. The transparency provided via the IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) allows companies to analyze and predict machine behavior to optimize production and processes remotely. However, there are costs, time considerations, and potential pitfalls in system selection and implementation. Plant managers, engineers, and production personnel must carefully consider safety, security, and usability of each remotely monitored device. Compliance adds another layer of complexity when talking about IIoT for environmental technologies.

    This webinar will examine, in detail, all the benefits and potential hurdles that industrial facilities should evaluate when implementing remote monitoring on environmental technologies.
