Pipeline

With a good safety system in place, you can reduce safety incidents by 50%.

Adding a Maple product to monitor for leaks and detect the location of the leak, you are not only increasing safety, but also reducing the cost of unnecessary construction, management, and maintenance.

Our solutions offer large numbers of I/O points that are capable of networking many PLCs, HMIs, and PCs together, bringing you faster, precise communication, and reliable warning signs concerning pipeline leaks.

Oil Pipeline

Compressor

Monitor temperatures, pressures and flow rates that can suddenly change.

A standard medium to large-size oil refinery houses thousands of pumps and compressors that move, store, and process oil and gases, making it essential for these machines to be in utmost operating condition.

Our products help provide continuous vibration data monitoring to prevent early removal of these components from service before a scheduled maintenance date, which can be very costly in terms of loss of production.

Platform

From Platform to the cloud, our products provide the solutions to meet your needs.

Maple products are a key necessity for data collection and real-time operations management. From wellhead to corporate office, our products provide accuracy and reliability for drilling of oil and gas.

Our solutions give you the freedom to work wireless, allowing for added mobility and a better use of your time. A custom screen design with large buttons for gloved hands is just one of the many features that will simplify your workflow.

Increase Efficency

Automated processes can work 24/7 with occasional outages for maintenance, which is clearly faster than human operators can perform. For this reason, increased efficiency and higher through-put rates are two of the biggest benefits of automation in the food and beverage industry. In addition to elevated efficiency, automation also allows companies to collect valuable data from the production line that can be used to improve maintenance. Predictive maintenance is a new approach to maintenance where real-time data is used to identify potential issues and alert when maintenance is needed – further reducing costs as well as production downtimes.
