  • 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 ...

  • Process analytics in vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) plants – Case Study

    Vinyl chloride monomer (VCM), made from ethylene and chlorine by pyrolysis, is the feedstock for the production of the very common plastic material PVC. Modern VCM plants use integrated processes, combining endothermic and exothermic reactions in an almost energy balanced operation. Plants optimize the product quality, plant safety and cost efficiency by using advanced process control equipment ...

  • Process analytics optimizes crude gas processing for the production of fine chemicals at Lonza – Case Study

    Fine chemicals are used as active ingredients or additives in the pharmaceutical and food & beverages industries, as well as in agriculture. The cracking of raw materials such as light virgin naphtha or liquefied gas results in intermediate products (ethylene, hydrogen, methane, CO2). At the end of the process chain, these can provide highly pure materials such as niacin (vitamin B3) or ...

  • 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%.
