The digital process plant generates a wealth of data that allows flexible control of process sequences and provides deep insights into the operating status of the entire plant.
Digital database for maximum process reliability
Our digital solutions provide insight into all processes and functions of a process plant for continuous optimization and maximum process reliability. The comprehensive process data forms a sound basis for decisions and interventions on the operational level. A combination of IoT and artificial intelligence enables you to respond faster to dynamic markets and changing customer requirements. Batch processes can be handled more flexibly – continuous processes can run with significantly higher efficiency and safety. Preventive maintenance concepts ensure maximum plant availability and greater sustainability. Take a look at a range of typical applications that demonstrate our digital competence for your goals:
An economical process plant does not only require the seamless interaction of applications, systems and technologies. It must also be specifically adapted to the respective products and production processes. Our specialists have already implemented countless projects in the chemical industry and therefore have extensive background knowledge. See some real-life examples here which demonstrate our range of expertise:
Separation is part of numerous processes in the chemical industry. A separation column is closely monitored during operation in order to ensure availability and process reliability. With our Mobile Operations concept, you can easily integrate mobile devices such as industrial tablets for safe on-site operations in the plant. It gives you increased data transparency and thus the basis for accurate control. Through optimized energy consumption, you create more efficiency and safety.
The synthesis of substances in liquid form takes place in the stirred tank reactor as the centerpiece of a process plant. Seamless batch tracking, documentation and quality control from the raw material to the reaction steps and on to the filling and packaging of the end products – the demands on a batch reactor are high. Unlike continuous processes, batch production depends on market conditions. This requires scalable solutions for a high degree of flexibility and modular automation as well as ongoing process monitoring.
Packaging means the safe handling of a variety of solid and liquid substances. With our solutions, you have your material transports in view at all times and can make optimal use of capacities. By integrating package units into the higher-level control system, you can also increase flexibility. Increase your operational efficiency, improve your supply chain processes and take advantage of our know-how to optimize your digital logistics.
Not only must the actual production process run efficiently and economically. Numerous peripheral processes must also be seamlessly integrated into the system. This includes digital management of the entire supply chain from warehouse management to packaging and filling through to logistics.
Filling and packaging of liquid substances
When it comes to filling small quantities into bottles and canisters or large volumes into drums or containers, we support you with our solutions for packaging machines. Transparent, safe, and efficient processes are the focus here – also for our identification and communication solutions.
Reliable management of the entire supply chain and global logistics networks are parts of the digital enterprise. The portfolio includes fully automated warehouse management solutions, identification and tracking systems, the AX4 logistics platform as well as data-driven analyses, simulations and optimizations.
We offer an end-to-end portfolio of frequency converters, motors, couplings and gearboxes through to reliable power supply and distribution and electrical installation technology – from control cabinet technology to power outlets.
Successful solutions for entirely new opportunities
The realization of a new process plant with an end-to-end digital infrastructure is one thing. The migration of an existing plant into a digital overall solution is quite another. We specifically address your current situation and develop a customized approach and a solution. This enables new possibilities and creates a process plant that’s characterized by maximum availability, efficiency and cost-effectiveness.
Chempark Leverkusen, Germany
Digital Plant with SIMATIC PCS neo and MTP
In Invite’s Digital Plant Showcase Center in Leverkusen, new digital technologies are tested quickly and easily.
The Digital Plant is a plant designed and implemented in a modular way in terms of process, construction and automation – i.e. flexible in design and open to expansion. New digital technologies can easily be integrated and tested.
The completely web-based process control system, SIMATIC PCS neo is used for orchestrating processes in modular production – for plug and produce using MTP.
Maximum safety, efficiency and productivity are indispensable for the profitable operation of a chemical plant. We help you achieve these goals in the face of global competition. As a reliable partner to the chemical industry, we make your goals our own.
