Companies in the oil and gas, chemical, mining, construction and energy industries are using RFID technologies to improve operational safety and efficiency, as well as financial results. In this virtual event, learn how the technology can be used for asset tracking, personnel safety and equipment maintenance, as well as to speed up production and shipping processes in harsh and complex environments.
Harsh Environments
11:00 AM
Welcome and Introduction
Speaker: Mark Roberti, Founder and Editor , RFID Journal
11:05 AM
Using RFID to Monitor Leaks of Hazardous Materials
A petrochemical industry technology firm that manufactures a wide range of products for gas stations and other companies is providing a gas tank safety solution that includes a radio frequency identification sensor able to detect a potential leak and issue alerts accordingly. The system, which employs RFID technology, is currently in use by 50 fuel stations. The company provides the cleaning and refurbishment services and equipment necessary to convert single-walled tanks to two walls, enabling gas stations to comply with new legislation requiring all gas storage tanks to be double-walled. Learn how the firm also offers a solution that uses a battery-powered RFID sensor to measure conditions within the underground tank, and to issue an alert in the event that a leak is detected.

Transit Authority Enhances Track Worker Safety With RFID
Track inspections are one of the most hazardous jobs in the rail industry, because the integrity of the rail and track conditions plays a significant role in ensuring that trains are able to move people safely. Inspections of the rail and track area are often conducted at all hours of the day and night, due to the frequency of required inspections, and the job presents hazards as track inspectors often walk along tracks while trains are in service. One rapid-transit system is employing RFID to improve safety for railway and track-side workers. The transportation authority is utilizing passive high-frequency (HF) RFID tags embedded in wristbands worn by personnel, readers installed along the tracks and motion sensors to detect oncoming trains to alert workers about those trains. Learn how the system is being used to enable automated setup of safety zones for workers, and to provide timely alerts for train operators, thereby reducing the risk of accidents.

Choosing the Right RFID Technology for Manufacturing and Harsh Environments
Many companies claim their tags are suitable for harsh environments, but as different as tags are, so are the definitions of "harsh" for various use cases. Standards are difficult to read, however, and tend to show up mostly in the form of strange numbers on datasheets. This presentation will explain the most relevant standards and visualize the test methods associated with each, enabling attendees to better map their needs to datasheet specifications and make the proper tag choice for their particular use cases. This session will also outline the steps that manufacturers must take to choose the right RFID system for a wide array of applications, including tracking parts bins, returnable transport containers, tools, work-in-process, finished goods inventory and much more, while building out an infrastructure for tracking and better managing other assets.
12:35 PM
RFID Reduces Wait Times on Construction Project
Accurately monitoring the curing of concrete can be critical on large construction projects. A construction company has deployed an RFID solution consisting of active ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID tags with built-in sensors, as well as handheld readers and software to interpret the collected temperature data for the construction of a new transit center. The tags' sensor probes are embedded in each concrete slab and the data is read remotely, making the system more nimble than conventional data loggers. The system has been able to determine that concrete has adequately cured within about two weeks after it is poured—approximately half the time the company would have had to wait without the sensor data, and has paid for itself three to four times over, based on the reduced wait times.
