APC - Etherification

APC uses a model-based predictive control technology that drives the process towards the desired targets through the manipulation of several variables simultaneously while observing all process constraints. APC has a proven track record in delivering business objectives: reducing energy costs, increasing yields and improving operability.

As a Process Licensor, catalyst Manufacturer and Advanced Control Technology Supplier, Axens combines all the necessary expertise for successful Etherification Process APC projects.

Our control strategy for the Etherification Process consists of:

  • Main reactor(s)
    • Control alcohol/reactants stoechiometric ratio
    • Optimize reactor temperature profile
  • Reactor column
    • Control alcohol/reactants stoechiometric ratio
    • Control reactor outlet temperature
    • Control internal traffic to save energy
    • Control quality of Ether and Raffinate
