Solving Three Common Problems Through SRU Simulation
Small operational issues in the sulphur recovery unit (SRU) can lead to higher emisisons — or worse, a frustrating and costly shutdown. Simulation of the SRU can enable more reliable operations and fewer shutdowns through the prevention of issues and quick and effective troubleshooting. In this paper, we present three common operational issues and show how simulation was used to prevent or quickly resolve the situation.
BPCL Mumbai Refinery Enhances Energy Management Using AspenTech Solutions
Energy is often the largest operating expense after raw materials for refining and petrochemicals companies, frequently starting out at over 50 percent of operating costs prior to energy reduction programs. Managing and optimizing these energy costs are critical capabilities for a refinery to meet profitability and sustainability targets. This white paper details the journey Bharat Petroleum Mumbai Refinery (BPCL-MR) in Mahul, India underwent to improve operations while optimizing energy costs.
Unlock Agility and Improve Customer Satisfaction Through Enhanced Production Scheduling
Virtually all multinational, diversified chemical companies are expanding their emphasis on specialty chemicals. Competition is intensifying, resulting in both margin degradation and faster product commoditization while customers are further exacerbating the situation by demanding “faster, better and cheaper” products. Learn how to leverage production scheduling to improve customer satisfaction and further take advantage of flexibility inside the plant.
An Enhanced Iterative Process for Sustaining the Value of APC Applications
Learn about how the synergy between innovations in model identification, automated testing and controller operating modes are creating opportunities to bring new efficiencies to sustaining APC controllers. These innovations address some of the long-standing challenges facing APC practitioners: dealing with closed loop data, managing APC solutions with model mismatch until repairs can be completed, and reducing the operational impact of step testing. With these advances, we now have the technology to begin constructing continuous improvement processes in lieu of the traditional sustained value workflows.
Acid Gas Cleaning Validation: Liquid Hydrocarbons
Learn about the acid gas removal process and underlying technology for the Acid Gas - Liquid Treating Property Package in Aspen HYSYS used for solvents used for treating liquid hydrocarbons. Validation results
Simplifying APC Tuning and Configuration
In depth look at the Smart Tune engine- The new Sequential Multi-Objective Optimization (SMO) technology is a step change from traditional APC optimizers. The new algorithm eliminates any LP cost tuning by enabling users to explicitly specify the APC controllers’ objectives.
