industrial grade computers for oil

Preparing For Oil Prices To Stabilize With Industrial Grade Computers

Demand for oil has significantly increased since the early days of this pandemic, but the question of when prices will truly stabilize is worth looking at. The price per barrel of crude oil was at a high of over $70 at the beginning of the year, and has since fallen and leveled off between $40 and $50 per barrel. When can oil producers expect these prices to rise, and how can they best prepare?

According to a new article by the Wall Street Journal, it may take some time. The good news, however, is that the recent approval of multiple vaccines has made the price of oil rise, and we may see prices well into the $60 range. By late 2021, the Wall Street Journal expects prices to restabilize, and the oil market to have completely recovered. In some places such as China, demand has already returned to nearly pre-pandemic levels.

While late 2021 may seem like a long ways away, the reality of the matter is that this timeframe is right around the corner, and prices will rise gradually rather than all at once. Oil producers can prepare for this rise now, and be ready for when prices increase by having their supply chains modernized. With Tangent industrial grade computers, oil production facilities can prepare for an increase in demand in a flexible and efficient manner.

Tangent Industrial Grade Computers For Oil Production

If these last few months have taught us anything, it’s that oil production needs to be flexible. In the early days of this pandemic, oil producers were forced to turn off wells, and were uncertain of the long term damage this could cause said wells. Preparing for situations like these is now in the playbook for oil producers, and flexibility is the name of the game.

With Tangent industrial computers, oil producers can customize their oil rigs, processing plants, and supply chains to maximize their flexibility. With multiple customization options, Tangent Industrial computers can be a part of numerous operations in your oil production chain, regardless of their levels of production.

industrial computers for social distancing in meat processing plants

Protecting Workers In Meat Processing Facilities

While many employees are essential during this pandemic, few fit the label as well as meat processing plant workers. These workers are vital to keeping the nation, and world, fed during these trying times. But more often than they should, these essential workers are falling to the virus at work. This cannot only upend their lives and livelihoods, but hinder the supply of one of the world’s most vital resources: food. Keeping meat processing plant workers safe is synonymous with keeping the global food chain safe, and Tangent is here to help.

Keeping Workers Safe With Social Distancing

The easiest way to keep workers safe in your meat processing plant is to ensure they keep their social distance from one another. While it may be difficult to achieve this when multiple workers are needed in one area, there are some workarounds. Creating “pods” of workers can ensure that if an infection does occur, it only affects a small portion of your facility’s labor force.

Outside of social distancing, replacing workers on the line with industrial computer solutions can help isolate potential outbreaks. With industrial computers, meat processing plants can space out workers while still maintaining the same — or even an increased — level of productivity.

Rugged Mini O Industrial Computer

Is U.S. Manufacturing Back?

U.S. manufacturing, like most sectors, took a nosedive at the start of the pandemic. Since then, the sector has seen a drastic and rapid recovery. Today, signs suggest that U.S. manufacturing is finally rounding the corner. Factories are once again outputting goods, demand for these goods is rising, and the economy is seeing stability for the first time in months. But the pandemic is not over, and factories need to continue their vigilance in order to make sure this recovery stays on track.

Contact Tracing Efforts

Contact tracing is crucial to keeping U.S. factories open. When a worker falls ill, the potential for cases to spread is real. Keeping on top of workers with regular testing is key to stopping cases in their tracks, but contact tracing is just as important. Make sure that workers who test positive recall every other worker they interacted with, and all equipment they may have used.

Social Distancing With Industrial Computers

If workers share the same equipment, outbreaks in your facility may be more severe than they otherwise would have been. Giving workers their own workstations with industrial computers can potentially cut back on the potential of widespread cases in your factories.

Industrial computer workstations don’t have to be entire cubicles, with rugged mini PCs they can be as small as your factory requires. Rugged mini PCs are small industrial computers with all the power of their larger counterparts. With Mini industrial PCs, workers can have entire workstations without the square footage they require. Mini industrial computer-based workstations also promote social distancing by allowing every worker to do their tasks on separate devices.

Re-Energize With Tangent

Manufacturing is up, but so are cases. Make sure that your factory is equipped with the technology to keep your workers socially distanced and safe. Tangent industrial computers can help your factory do just that. Contact Tangent Sales today for more information.
