Lowering operational costs, improving process performance and reliability by making model-supported process changes.Examples:
We can check if new equipment meets criteria. By simulating a concept before actually realizing it, we can save costs, prevent future operational problems and maximize process efficiency. By virtually testing and challenging different designs our customers can take the most effective decision, with confidence.
Upscaling of processes is often not straightforward. We use simulation to make sure the process still meets criteria at a larger scale. As such, a full-scale installation performs equally well as the pilot or expensive piloting can be omitted. Retrofit on the other hand, often impacts the whole process train. Using modelling we can assess the impact of different retrofit decisions.
We use advanced modelling to turning standard 'tanks-in-series' models or 'perfectly mixed models' into more reliable yet still simple models. These models need less recalibration and are still valid if process changes occur.
