SNF s.a.s.Polymer Producer Mobilizes Field Device Management to Optimize Productivity and Increase Maintenance EfficiencyExecutive SummaryDigital communication standards are playing an increasingly important role in the industrial world. Today’s intelligent field devices utilize a variety of digital protocols, hence the need for versatile configuration and management tools that effectively support initial setup, daily maintenance, and troubleshooting for the maximum utilization of smart instrumentation.The following case study describes how an advanced mobile field device management tool, employing current FDT2® Technology, helps a major global polymer producer streamline device commissioning and maintenance tasks, and at the same time, increase productivity and savings in maintenance and service work. With the implementation of a modernized FDT solution, the company is now able to achieve greater efficiency in overall maintenance activities for production and skid environments.Expertise in Oil RecoveryFounded in 1978, and headquartered in Andrézieux, France, SNF s.a.s. produces water-soluble polymers for applications in drinking water, wastewater treatment, oil and gas, and agriculture, as well as the mining, paper, textile and cosmetics industries. It is the largest polyacrylamide manufacturer in the world, accounting for 43 percent of the global production, serving customers in 130 different countries.In recent years, SNF has achieved major sales growth in the area of chemical enhanced oil recovery (CEOR). Chemical injection is used to increase the amount of crude oil extracted from oil fields. Rather than try to force oil out of the ground using primary or secondary oil recovery, CEOR (also known as tertiary oil recovery) can increase a well’s extraction recovery potential to 40-60 percent.Plant InformationLocation: Andrézieux, FranceCompletion:201513Success Story CollectionChemical (Fine & Specialty Chemical, Biofuel)& Pharmaceutical
