Desafíos

El reto de los clientes

La industria química es altamente especializada, en cuyas plantas se manufacturan productos intermedios a partir de materia prima que, a su vez, son utilizados por otras plantas como insumos para la manufactura de productos más avanzados. Toda compañía de productos químicos necesita considerar detenidamente su posicionamiento en un mercado altamente competitivo.

Nuestras soluciones

Los productos químicos básicos normalmente se producen por medio de un proceso continuo que requiere un sistema de control altamente confiable y robusto. También aquí, el sistema integrado de control de la producción CENTUM VP es la solución ideal que hace posible un entorno de operación cómodo, que responde a los requerimientos del proceso y proporciona un entorno de acción cómodo con un control de procesos estable. La herramienta de navegación en línea Exapilot ofrece a los operadores un sólido apoyo para la ejecución confiable de operaciones no rutinarias, como el cierre y el arranque.

Mejora de la eficiencia de la operación: Exapilot
Exapilot es una herramienta de navegación en línea que guía paso a paso a los operadores a través de los procedimientos operativos de la planta.
Al emplear Exapilot, los procedimientos operativos estándar (o SOP) se crean siguiendo un método uniforme. Los SOP mejoran la eficiencia y reducen el costo total de propiedad al minimizar o eliminar los errores humanos.


Analizador
Los sistemas analíticos con gran capacidad de respuesta contribuyen a una medición precisa de la propiedad de producto/intermedio, ayudando a las compañías químicas a cumplir normas más estrictas de control de calidad y ambientales.


Instrumentos de campo
Los instrumentos de campo digitales tipo "instalar y olvidar" proporcionan mediciones de procesos estables y precisas con un bajo costo de instalación, mantenimiento casi nulo e inteligencia de autodiagnóstico. Como líder genuino en la industria de automatización de procesos y sus tecnologías relacionadas, Yokogawa lanzó al mercado el primer dispositivo del mundo con capacidad FOUNDATION fieldbus™, y desde entonces ha desarrollado una gama completa de instrumentación de protocolos FOUNDATION fieldbus™, HART y Profibus, que se suman a los productos de comunicación inalámbrica que cumplen con la normativa ISA 100.11a.

Descripción General:

Electrolysis plants create hydrogen and chlorine from a brine solution. Chlorine gas generated from the anolyte of the electrolysis tank generally contains between 0.5 to 2.0 vol% H2O. The sample is then cooled and filtered to remove brine, subsequently coming out as wet chlorine gas. The wet gas is sent to a drying tower where it is treated with sulfuric acid to get moisture down to the ppm level.

Descripción General:

This paper discusses real industrial examples in which the sitewide utilities system of refinery and petrochemical Sites are optimized with a real time, on line, industrially proven software. Experiences gained during more than 20 years of industrial projects deployed worldwide are commented (Refs. 1 to 10 are related to some recent projects). Main project steps are explained and critical details to be taken into account to assure successful use and proper technology transfer are presented. Specific case studies will be discussed in the paper. 

Descripción General:

Big and complex industrial facilities like Refineries and Petrochemicals are becoming increasingly aware that power systems need to be optimally managed because any energy reduction that Operations accomplish in the producing Units could eventually be wasted if the overall power system cost is not properly managed. However, process engineers always attempted to develop some kind of tools, many times spreadsheet based, to improve the way utilities systems were operated. The main drawback of the earlier attempts was the lack of data: engineers spent the whole day at phone or visiting the control rooms to gather information from the Distributed Control System (DCS) data historian, process it at the spreadsheet and produce recommendations that, when ready to be applied, were outdated and not any more applicable.

Descripción General:

UACS alarm shelving allows operators to temporarily suppress or "shelf" certain alarms. This can be useful in situations where an alarm is not critical or requires further investigation before an action is taken. Shelving an alarm typically means that it is acknowledged but not actively alarming, so it can be reviewed for later action.
