Moving from preventative to predictive maintenance in emissions monitoring

22 November 2021

ABB’s Datalyzer is designed to help respond to the need for increased agility and reliability of emissions monitoring in real-time.

The cloud-based modular application provides real-time analyser status across a fleet of analysers and plants. In doing so, it is said to lower ownership cost and reduce capital expenditure.  

Real-time fleet status is realised r through the collection of data from emissions monitoring analysers which are then routed to an on-site Edge device (Micro PC). The Edge device sends the relevant information up to Datalyzer which sits in the Microsoft Azure cloud. The application analyses the data received transforming it into actionable insights.    

The end user receives the information from Datalyzer across three different dashboard views. The first shows the Fleet view, the second the plant view and the third a more detailed analyser view. This combination provides both an ‘at a glance’ vision of the overall analyser status alongside valuable detailed asset parameters. Heatmaps of the installed base, historical trends and systems diagnostics are amongst the key parameters provided.

Datalyzer also offers QAL-3 assessment and reporting and event-based notifications by e-mail. Live analyzer process data together with value added insights and reports are key features of the solution. Historical trends are tracked for up to five years, providing the platform for predictive maintenance. Adherence to cyber security standards prevent unauthorised access while ensuring data integrity.

Datalyzer has been developed for industries that carry out continuous emissions monitoring such as power plants, the cement and metals industry and waste-to-energy plants. Continuous gas analysers such as ABB’s ACF5000 and ACF-NT analysers are compatible with the Datalyzer with extensions planned to include Advanced Optima and Easy Line in the first quarter of 2022.
