Capturing APC Benefits from Secondary Units
7 September 2016
Advanced Process Control has been used for many decades on wide variety of major process units such as crude distillation units, Hydrocrackers, FCC, Hydrotreaters and Reformers. However, due to a lack of understanding of achievable benefits, shortage of APC resources and gap in APC technology, some organizations do not implement APC on secondary units, leaving significant benefits on the table.
This paper describes the benefits of implementing APC applications on secondary units to improve margins and help achieve operational excellence.
