Emerson’s SmartProcess Distillation solution is a modular, pre-engineered system that provides petrochemical producers with accurate model predictive control (MPC) of their distillation columns.
The system is integrated with the company’s advanced DeltaV embedded advanced process control (APC) technologies.
In addition, it also includes various software and services to implement MPC and neural modules for control of any two or three product distillation column.
Other benefits include:
- Reduce product quality variation and offspec production
- Minimise quality giveaways
- Minimise energy consumption per unit of feed
- Increase recovery of more valuable products
- Maximise feed rate upon demand
- Increase column throughput
- Lower costs of implementation
