Petrochemical company Texmark Chemicals, the largest North American producer of dicyclopentadiene (DCPD)—a chemical used in resins, inks, adhesives and paints—has completed the first phase of a deployment to create what it calls a “Refinery of the Future.” The solution starts with Internet of Things (IoT) technology to track wireless sensor data on two of its most critical pumps. The deployment is one part of a holistic plan to manage safety and efficiency using cameras, Wi-Fi and other wireless technologies, all on a single platform. Learn how the firm is using the technology to collect real-time data regarding the function of critical pumps on the plant floor, with the long-term goal of managing assets, employee safety and access, via video and other wireless technologies.
