How to Implement Process Analytical Technology in Pharmaceutical Manufacturing

The pharmaceutical manufacturing industry has had to work within the constraints of regulation for many decades, which has inhibited a culture of continuous process improvement and caused less than optimal manufacturing practices. There is a reluctance to change a validated process that may require regulatory approval. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) initiative for current […]

Flow Measurement and Instrumentation: Critical Components for Sustainable Processes

Consumers, industry, and society in general benefit from a commitment to sustainability. This concept is not purely about conservation or “being green.” Sustainability is not about using less, but about using the right or necessary amount—reducing waste in the process. The value of sustainability as a business opportunity is balanced between altruistic ideas related to […]

ISA is Changing

ISA recently made some big news in automation training. One of ISA’s most important and popular courses—Fundamentals of Industrial Process Measurement & Control (FG05M)—is now available in a modular format. Instead of purchasing the entire course at once, you choose only the topic or “module” of online training content that meets your specific needs, budget, […]

New Applications for Pressure Measurement Technologies

Accurately measuring liquid, gas, and steam pressure is a basic requirement for many industrial processes to operate safely, efficiently, and with optimum quality control. In addition to directly measuring pressure values, pressure measurements can be used to determine or infer flow rates, fluid levels, product density, and other parameters. As a result, many plants rely […]

Bilateral Control of Master-Slave Manipulators with Constant Time Delay

  Abstract: This paper presents a novel teleoperation controller for a nonlinear master-slave robotic system with constant time delay in communication channel. The proposed controller enables the teleoperation system to compensate human and environmental disturbances, while achieving master and slave position coordination in both free motion and contact situation. The current work basically extends the passivity […]
