Improve material balance in high-purity distillation control
Using dual-composition conserved energy efficiency, reduced reprocessing and allowed higher throughput
In this case history, a petrochemical facility needed to
improve operation control as well as profitability for a
benzene-toluene-xylene (BTX) distillation train. The project focused on dual-composition
material balance controls. Improved process control from the
new control system provided an annual $1 million in energy
savings and reduced feedstock reprocessing needs.
