Digital Transformation in air separation plants for chemical industry
Reliable and safe solutions with Digital Enterprise
The most important operational goals in automated air separation plants are to minimize production costs by reducing energy consumption and to ensure product quality. We support you in this endeavor as a strong partner with many years of experience. For numerous air compression applications, we offer reliable process, plant and safety solutions that are precisely tailored to your specific needs – including automation, electrification and digitalization.
Product quality and compliance with your specificationChanging plant operations, complex processes, a high total cost of ownership, and growing competitive pressure in the market are just some of the many reasons for needing to continually maximize the efficiency of chemical and air separation plants.
Exploit potential in air separation plants
To remain competitive in the market over the long term, standards must be set for safety, availability, efficiency, and transparency. These can only be met when all existing potential is rigorously exploited.
Keeping an eye on efficiency and safety
The goal of our safety solutions is to guarantee process and plant safety throughout the entire lifecycle – for example, through ex protection, functional safety, defense-in-depth concepts and risk management. We achieve a high-level of plant efficiency and system integrity through service concepts that, among other things, enable transparent data management. For more opportunities increasing your production.
In the chemical industry, large quantities of oxygen and nitrogen are required for processing input and intermediate products. Energy supply and compression play a key role in the separation process.
For maximum efficiency, pre-cleaning, compression, cryogenic rectification of air or storage and filling must be kept within a very specific range of operating parameters. Siemens’ automation and measurement solutions help to maintain an ideal environment for the process at all times, even under difficult conditions.
