Optimization Of Plant Performance
RUN YOUR PLANT AT OPTIMAL EFFICIENCY
After plant safety, plant performance optimization is probably the second most important goal for most chlor-alkali plant managers. In fact, most projects for process improvements or new equipment purchases will be examined through several lenses, and plant performance is typically a key one. It all comes down to delivering more outputs (chlorine and caustic soda volume and revenues) with less inputs (less electricity consumption, less downtime, etc). And on top of it, chlor-alkali producers are faced with increasing competition and low margins. To leapfrog competition, plant managers must:
- Optimization of operating conditions
- Detection and prevention of improper operation
- Higher utilization rate
- Improved plant safety
With decades of experience working with the biggest chlor-alkali producers in the world and monitoring tens and tens of plants, R2 can help by first ascertaining how your plant performance changes with operational parameters. Then, R2 can identify recurring faults that lead to downtime and provide recommendations to prevent them. Also, R2 can propose small adjustments in operational set-points like temperature or caustic concentration that can reduce the specific power consumption and yield financial benefits.
