The Dow Chemical Company specialty chemicals plant located in Deer Park, Texas, USA, has been selected as recipient of the 2013 HART Plant of the Year Award. The award recognizes end users who have demonstrated ingenuity in the application of HART Communication for real-time operational improvements.

Dow Chemical engineers are using HART technology as part of a reliability improvement program to monitor critical control valves connected to asset management software for diagnostics, failure analysis, and preventative/predictive condition-based maintenance. Using the intelligent device information significantly reduced costs and improved plant operations as it enabled the transition from reactive to proactive maintenance.
