Raising yield and driving compliance for chemical production
The power and ease of use of Wonderware software enable more flexible and agile production, while also reducing unit costs, energy usage, greenhouse gas intensities and plant emissions.
Wonderware solutions can deliver significant increases in the plant or facility's sales value of production (SVOP) and contribute to sustainability by easing the environmental, health and safety compliance concerns that are increasingly occupying the minds of business leaders in this sector. And as the IIoT evolves to offer new solutions for performance and compliance, we will be there to help you phase them into your business.
Manufacturers of the specialty chemicals on which so many other manufacturers rely for the chemical agents, additives, flavorings and other ingredients of their end products, tend to be more market-driven than fine, petrochemical or pharmaceutical manufacturers. Their products are often central to their customers’ end solutions offerings so they need the agility to adapt operations to rapidly fluctuating global competition and market dynamics.
Profitable production of inorganic chemicals, such as titanium dioxide, chlor-alkali products and carbon black, requires a delicate blend of discrete, continuous and batch processing, integrating mechanical, chemical and electro-chemical processes. This requires the sophisticated understanding of control and automation for which Wonderware products are well known
Fertilizers - Ammonia and Urea
As the world’s population increases, the demand for fertilizers is growing proportionately. Except for a few regions of the world, the cost of the natural gas feedstock for ammonia production is, and will continue to be, quite high. Maximizing the yield of ammonia and urea at minimum cost and operational risk is essential to the long-term competitive success of fertilizer companies striving to help farmers meet increasing demand for food across the globe. For decades, Wonderware has helped ammonia and urea producers around the world operate their plants safely, reliably, sustainably, cost-effectively and at peak levels of operational performance.
Biofuel production can make a major contribution to environmental sustainability due to the fact that biofuels have a more favorable carbon balance than traditional fossil fuels, but the significant challenges must be overcome. Throughput, yield and reliability must be maximized in the face of dynamic production and market situations. With changing economic subsidies, competing oil-for-food and oil-for-biodiesel prices and unpredictable agricultural conditions, the challenges of maximizing throughput, yield and reliability are daunting. Wonderware software provides biofuel manufactures the measurement, connectivity and control capabilities they need to improve profitability, safety and compliance.
Recipe and Batch Management
Manufacturing Execution Systems, recipe and batch management solutions help process orders to specification. Automate recipe and batch execution, improving product yields and manufacturing capacity while reducing waste and product variability. Electronic records of production execution, material flows and integrated quality management help eliminate paperwork and manual data collection, provide real-time performance information and reduce the cost of regulatory compliance.
Compliance, Sustainability and Quality Applications
Situational awareness provides plant personnel to make faster and more effective decisions, enabling them to implement corrective actions quickly, before problems or critical conditions occur.
Operations and Manufacturing Intelligence Applications
Operations and manufacturing intelligence solutions are the foundation for deeper plant intelligence. Bring real-time operational insight, analysis and reporting on Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and monitoring of day-to-day processes
Asset Performance and Maintenance Management Applications
Increases the plant or facility’s Sales Value of Production (SVOP) and contribute to sustainability by easing the Environmental, Health and Safety compliance concerns. Ensure regulatory compliance for both worker safety and environmental impact.
