Hi, members of PI Square!
In the past few months, I have developed an Asset Based PI Example Kit for Batch Tank CBM, showing how the PI System can be used to monitor corrosion rates on batch tanks using condition-based maintenance. Even though this kit uses the industry of titanium dioxide as an example, the idea of batch tanks health is beyond this industry.
The AF kit has element templates and analyses for digesters and it considers that the tank was made with carbon steel. And I have built this Example kit with PI Vision displays that allows the users to monitor corrosion data in real time, PI Datalink report which is possible to see the total corrosion on each tank since the installation date, and Power BI report where the data was gathered with PI Integrator for Business Analytics.
Inside the zip file, you will find all the files required to execute this kit, including the User Guide which explains how to import it to your database and how to prepare it to work with your own PI System.
Following you can find a short introduction video explaining the scope and objectives of this kit:
Note: The creation of this kit aimed to demonstrate the capabilities of PI AF using demo data samples; implementation on real-world operational environments may require further studies and development.
