Use of process analytics in aromatics (BTX and Phenol) production plants – Case Study
Aromatics are planar, cyclic compounds with conjugated double bonds, consisting of the elements carbon and hydrogen. Aromatics are important intermediates and used as starting materials for a wide range of products. Aromatics are derived from crude oil and, in small quantities, from coal.Process automation equipment including gas chromatographs and other process analyzers contribute essentially to control and optimize these processes.Siemens, a leader in process analytics, has proven worldwide its competence to...
Reliable explosion protection in an oil tanker vapor recycle plant – Case Study
In-situ gas analyzer monitor oxygen in real-timeProjectThe world-class transshipment and storage facility Kiire, Japan, contains 46 million barrels of crude oil in 57 storage tanks, an amount equal to Japan’s two week demand. Continuous loading and unloading of oil tankers generates odorous gases and additionally results in losses of volatile hydrocarbons into the surrounding environment. Recently, the terminal operator decided to implement a new Tanker Vapor Recycle (TVR) plant that treats the malodorous...
Use of process analyzers in cement plants solutions from Siemens – Case Study
Cement is a hydraulic binding agent to produce concrete. Due in part to the fast growth of the Asian economies, world consumption of cement is currently growing at an annual rate of 8%. Therefore, cement production is expanding and, at the same time, production processes need to be optimized to ensure maximum efficiency. In this context, process analytics plays an important role: It determines reliable and exact data from the processes and thereby allows their optimization. Siemens is a leading provider of...
Maxum process gas chromatograph measures and optimizes synthetic rubber production – Case Study
RubberRubber is a collective term for macromolecular substances of natural rubber (NR) or synthetic rubber (SR) origin. Natural rubber use dates back to the Mayas but was first recognized as technical material in 1851 by Charles Nelson Goodyear. He presented a new material produced from the milk of rubber trees, which had been treated with sulfur and vulcanized to strengthen the rubber. Years later, the development of alternatives for natural rubber was started for a number of reasons including political ones.Synth...
Oil and gas industry process analytics in ethylene production plants – Case Study
Ethylene is the largest volume industrially produced organic material and its majority is used in the production of polymers and derivatives. Between a variety of processes the thermal cracking of hydrocarbons in the presence of steam (steam cracker) is mostly used. Regardless of the process type, all plants require process analytical equipment to collect reliable and accurate process data for process control, product quality, and plant safety.Siemens, a leader in process analytical instrumentation, has proven...
