The Perfect Settings


Producers of basic chemicals such as chlor-alkali and caustic soda are confronted with fierce competition and low margins. As the cost of energy goes up in the energy-intensive field of chlor-alkali and caustic soda production, every percentage saved can make a significant difference to your bottom line.

R2 understands that the energy efficiency of an electrolyser is determined by the complex inter-relationships of different process parameters. Slight changes in operational set-points, such as temperature or caustic concentration, can make a huge difference.

R2’s research has shown that up to a 3-5% savings in energy consumption can be achieved by operating the plant at optimum set-points for caustic concentration & temperature.

R2’s process optimization portfolio consists of two products: Econometer, a dashboard that displays key performance indicators such as production rate and normalized specific energy consumption, and Solver, an optimization tool that recommends specific set-points for operating parameters like temperature and caustic concentration.
