Nutritionals and Ingredients We help blue-chip companies increase the capacity of their existing assets, by operating their plants closer to constraints, improving yield and increasing throughput. Rising energy costs, higher prices for raw materials, and more demanding end users have pushed efficiency and quality to the top of the agenda. Capital expansion can be a costly and disruptive route to
Chemicals, Formulated and Personal Care Products High-value formulated products are often produced from the 'actives' which deliver specific benefits, along with a complex selection of other ingredients that convey other desired properties, such as texture, appearance, shelf-life, miscibility, or odour. The manufacture of these products represents a series of challenges: how to ensure
Water and Wastewater Perceptive has developed powerful tools to deal with sensor reliability issues, improve process efficiency and robustness, provide early warning of process upset. The environmental impact of cleaning wastewater has become a serious consideration, with whole-life assessments now made of design, build and operation. Drinking water is becoming an increasingly precious
The focus is on increasing process stability, raising yield from recycled fibre plants and lowering the costs of energy and raw materials used in paperboard production. Commercial pressures on pulp, paper and board making require the highest quality at the lowest cost of operation. Manufacturers are seeking new ways to get the most out of existing assets, without major capital investment.
Our approach to solving a problem is the same, no matter the industry. Have we got the data we need? Can that data provide an insight into the plant's current behaviour and future potential? Can we monitor, understand, then advise? Or do we need to directly exercise better control? Here are a couple of other sectors where our skills and solutions have reaped benefits for our clients.
- lower process variability, for consistent quality and higher efficiency
- less rejected or re-worked product for increased capacity with APC
- greater process stability for longer production runs and better OEE
- operator intervention minimised, freeing up control room personnel
- improved data trustworthiness, for better decisions and planning
- multivariate monitoring provides early detection of process fault or drift
