Smart Plants

The smart plant solution takes advantage of the smart equipment in modules order to manage the plant performance for increased safety and asset availability. Besides, it takes into account the interaction of events between different equipment. Take a look at the top five complex events for each smart plant.

Top 5 complex events

Smart Continuous Catalytic Reforming Unit

  • 1. Sudden drop in RON
  • 2. Fluctuations in naphta feed quality
  • 3. High moisture in reformer feed
  • 4. Inadequate recycle gas to feed ratio
  • 5. High moisture in recycle gas

Smart Sulfur Recovery Unit

  • 1. Poor sulfur conversion
  • 2. Inadequate acid gas to air ratio
  • 3. Low fist reactor feed temperature
  • 4. High deposits in catalyst bed
  • 5. Waste heat boiler tube leak

Smart Crude Distillation Unit

  • 1. Flooding in crude column
  • 2. Off-spec naphta
  • 3. Low naphta production
  • 4. High flaring from crude unit overhead separator
