Reduce energy and maintenance costs with advanced control solutions.

Reduce energy and maintenance costs with advanced control solutions.

Feed variability, temperature changes, and pressure fluctuations can upset distillation processes. Over-purifying leads to higher energy usage and cost while unreliable equipment can lead to slowdowns or shutdowns.  Emerson’s distillation solutions can help you keep your product on-spec with advanced sensors, transmitters, and process control technology to provide predictive diagnostics and optimized process control for a more profitable and energy efficient distillation operation.

Our advanced process control solutions utilize the Emerson DeltaV™ distributed control system (DCS) to optimize process performance.

Emerson's SmartProcess® Distillation Column Optimizer is a pre-engineered, modular solution for model predictive control (MPC) of distillation columns using DeltaV's embedded advanced process control (APC) technologies. The solution includes software and services to implement MPC and neural modules for control of any 2 or 3-product distillation column that enable you to:

  • Reduce product quality variation and off-spec production
  • Minimize quality giveaways
  • Minimize energy consumption per unit of feed
  • Increase recovery of more valuable products
  • Maximize feed rate upon demand
  • Increase column throughput
  • Lower costs of implementation
