Operational Transformation With Rosemount 3051S Transmitters

May 28, 2024

Identifying the Core Issue: Transmitter Failures

One of our clients faced significant difficulties due to recurring failures in their backup Safety system. These incidents were primarily caused by the failure of another manufacturer's transmitters, which could not withstand pressure levels that were still below their specified design thresholds. Ignoring this issue led to several adverse consequences, such as service interruptions related to unplanned maintenance, the risk of damage to essential equipment, and an increase in maintenance costs due to the frequent replacement of the faulty transmitters.


Seeking a Durable and Reliable Solution

In seeking a solution, our client aimed to eliminate the recurring issue of transmitter failure to ensure uninterrupted operation and safeguard against revenue loss and equipment damage. The urgency to find a robust solution led them to our experts, motivated by their confidence in the reliability of the Rosemount brand, especially for applications requiring durability under harsh conditions.

Strategic Recommendation: Transition to Rosemount 3051S Transmitters

Our team conducted an in-depth evaluation of the installation requirements at the plant and recommended a strategic shift to a more suitable device to address the challenges faced. The solution proposed was the implementation of the Rosemount 3051S Coplanar Pressure Transmitter, known for its proven and robust design, especially in handling overpressure protection and transient spikes more effectively than the current transmitters.

The Features and Advantages of the Rosemount 3051S 

Part of the SuperModule platform, the Rosemount 3051S Coplanar Pressure Transmitter was selected for its exceptional resistance to overpressure and line pressure effects, maintaining unmatched performance and reliability. This differentiation positioned the 3051S as the optimal choice for our client offering a superior solution to their persistent problem.

Quantifiable Outcomes: Reliability and Cost Savings

The introduction of the Rosemount 3051S Transmitters yielded significant business results for our client:
  • Reliability: Since the installation of five 3051S transmitters, there have been zero failures, greatly enhancing the reliability of the safety monitoring system.
  • Cost Savings: The total estimated savings amounted to $47,500, broken down as follows:
    • Material cost savings of $40,000, eliminating the need to replace failing transmitters every six months.
    • Labour cost savings of approximately $7,500 per year, based on the reduction in man-hours required for transmitter replacement.
  • Operational Costs: While difficult to quantify precisely due to the complexities of balancing grid power, the operational efficiency and reliability improvements contribute significantly to overall cost management and operational stability.

Technological Solutions Driving Industry Success

The adoption of the Rosemount 3051S Transmitters at our client’s plant exemplifies how targeted technological solutions can address specific operational challenges, leading to enhanced safety, reliability, and cost efficiency. This case study underscores the importance of selecting the right tools and partners to solve critical industry-specific problems, ultimately contributing to the sustainability and success of operations within the power generation sector.
