Honeywell has announced that it will collaborate with Aereon on solutions to help industrial customers boost the safety, efficiency and reliability of their operations by leveraging Honeywell's Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) ecosystem.
The INspire™ ecosystem is a part of Honeywell's Connected Plant initiative, which helps manufacturers leverage the IIoT to improve the safety, efficiency and reliability of operations across a single plant or several plants within an enterprise.
Andrew Hird, Vice President and General Manager of Honeywell Process Solutions' Digital Transformation business, said: "For years, manufacturers and producers have looked for ways to solve operational problems that were believed to be unsolvable – such as unplanned downtime, underperforming assets and inefficient supply chains […] With the capabilities of the IIoT, we can find new ways to solve those problems. A key part is the creation of an industrial ecosystem that leverages the depth of knowledge and experience of a range of equipment and service providers such as Aereon."
Aereon offers products for flare systems, enclosed combustion systems, high efficiency thermal oxidisers and vapour/gas recovery units.
Mark Zyskowski, Senior Global Vice President of Aereon, said: "Aereon's fundamental strength is its wide array of fit-for-purpose combustion and vapour recovery products supported by in-house expertise to design, manufacture and support its field-installed base […] We are pleased to be able to bring our expertise to the IIoT ecosystem that Honeywell is developing to help customers around the globe maximise value from their operations by tapping into the power of the IIoT."
Honeywell and its ecosystem partners are developing infrastructure that offers customers secure methods to capture and aggregate data, and apply advanced analytics. Customers can then use this information to determine methods to reduce or eliminate manufacturing upsets and inefficiencies.
Mr Hird added: "Honeywell's capabilities in data consolidation, cyber security and software development, combined with the deep industry knowledge of its collaborators, including Aereon, will help customers solve previously unsolvable problems […] These problems include eliminating unplanned shutdowns, maximising output, maintaining regulatory compliance, increasing safety and optimising supply chain strategies."
