Demethanizer Optimization for an Olefin Plant through Real-Time Monitoring and Predictive Analytics
The client, a global leader in the chemical industry, operates several olefin plants worldwide. These plants are part of its Olefins business unit, which focuses on producing olefins, fundamental building blocks for chemicals and plastics.
An olefin plant uses a series of interconnected units to crack hydrocarbon feedstocks into smaller molecules, separate the different hydrocarbons, and remove impurities. The units include furnaces, quench towers, the CGC compressor, dethanizers, demethanizers, depropanizers, debutanizers, acetylene reactors, and caustic wash towers.
