Advanced Process Control
Capturing more value from your process unit through licensor unique approach to APC
Fast paybacks from Axens' Multivariable predictive Control solution using unique process control strategies and proprietary inferential models.
APC provided by Axens ensures robust control, increases process operation stability and allows operators to reach the economical optimum yield through unique services and applications.
Clients’ plants can perform better and more safely with APC by:
- extending catalyst performance and service life
- reducing utility and logistics costs
- saving energy and decreasing carbon dioxide emissions
- avoiding the problems caused by off-specification products
Benefits of APC generated by sulfur control in a gasoline hydrotreater.
Example of 5 days data on Prime-G+ unit: APC keeps the Sulfur of the product at target and minimizes Octane Loss estimated on-line by Axens Horizon inferential.
- Embedding licensor unique reaction model coupled with an optimizer that will continuously send the best operating targets in order to achieve the greatest yields while taking care of products specification.
- Tailored approach for implementation in collaboration with your APC team
- Axens support over all process unit lifecycle to ensure that APC benefits will be sustained
Operator Training Simulators
A unique OTS solution that provides benefits over the complete unit lifecycle
Operator Training Simulator (OTS)
Enhance Employee Skills Through Accurate and Interactive Unit Simulation powered by Corys state of the art IndissPlus dynamic simulator and Axens high fidely models OTS are a next generation educational tool that helps facilitate safe, efficient, and reliable operations via real-time, dynamic replications of process unit performance in a controlled training environment. The system is designed utilizing proven scenarios - both planned and emergency-based - to maximize operator knowledge retention.
- A solution fully interoperable with your control system
- Provides operations staff with the opportunity to understand the process significantly prior start up by practicing control scenarios developed by process licensor,
- Provides a platform for the development of Process optimization that later can be interfaced to Axens performance remote monitoring tool, called Connect’In™
Static Operations Simulators
Using Axens high fidelity models
Web-based Process Operations Simulators (WebPOS™)
WebPOS™ are packaged modeling applications that are fine-tuned and approved for refining or petrochemical units. The applications are used by process and planning engineers to meet specific operational needs.
Axens’ approach is to support refinery engineers in achieving operational excellence and maximizing return on assets while optimizing their efforts. An easy-to-use interface coupled with Axens’ expertise in process technology, catalysts and refineries enables operators to maximize their returns from the webPOS™ investment.
For a client already using Axens Connect’In, users will be able to benefit from a unique functionality tuning WebPOS to real process conditions. This is a key building block toward a digital twin of your process unit.
- A unique what if tool to identify operational changes that positivly impact performance/margin
- Easy of use with no sofware application to install &/or maintain
- A solution to accuratly update Linear Programming planning model of your plant
