From the article:
"What if the pipe and vessels that contain your physical process were embedded with sensors for flow, pressure, temperature and composition? No more vessel penetrations for thermowells or process taps for DP cells. No more worries about plugging impulse lines or zero shifts. Distillation column temperature profiles would be continuous and automatic."It seems like an interesting proposition, but what would this mean for all the automation equipment (and networks) that we sell today?
