“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it” says the famous quote from the philosopher George Santayana. Transposed in the chlor-alkali plant context, this quote reveals that future plant performance can be largely determined from past plant performance, and that past faults / incidents are bound to reoccur in the future if they are not fixed. Historical analysis of individual cell voltage and distributed control system (DCS) data allows for understanding plant performance in great details, if examined with the proper know-how. More specifically, plant performance analysis offers:
- Early detection of abnormal performance loss
- Predictive and proactive maintenance planning (recoating and re-membraning based on economics)
- Root cause analysis
- Improved utilization rates
- Neutral investigation in warranty claims
R2 is uniquely positioned to perform comprehensive analysis of plant performance and to provide actionable recommendations. Our growing list of over 80 satisfied customers all over the world testifies to the quality and validity of R2 scientific plant analysis.
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.
Whether you are looking to train new employees on our products or refresh your own knowledge, R2 offers a wide variety of trainings suitable for all skill levels. The options are divided into standard and expert level training:
- Standard trainings are given by an R2-certified operations specialist or engineer and cover required topics and standard products.
- Expert trainings are given by an R2-certified chlor-alkali expert and cover advanced topics and products.
All trainings are offered in two formats:
- On site: lecture and hands-on training adapted to your workflow.
- Online: lecture followed by a Q&A
