Operations in the process industries are challenging due to the inherent complexities and lack of insights. Plant digital twin technology helps solve these challenges. Learn how Burns & McDonnell developed and deployed a plant digital twin of a refinery’s FCC unit using rigorous process simulation to:
- Analyze why the column was failing to meet design feed rates
- Simulate and visualize the hydraulic operation of the column
- Explore and compare alternative solutions
- Leverage integrated cost analysis to compare budget implications of other solutions
Ultimately, Burns & McDonnell delivered the refinery millions of dollars in revenue from improved yield of high value products.
