Use cases and concepts

Process information ensures quality and efficiency

The ammonia production process passes through a number of stages, from desulfurization and the primary reformer to the synthesis reactor. The composition of the material flow must therefore always be closely inspected. Any fluctuations would impact on all subsequent stages, and so the consequences for process quality and efficiency would be serious. Exhaust gases from the primary reformer and purge gases from the synthesis stage, and the quality of the natural gas used must also be precisely monitored.

Our Services

Services for the Chemical Industry

From plant designs and concepts to retrofits, from the development of new processes to the optimization of existing ones – with a global network of experts and committed employees in more than 190 countries, we can support you anytime and anywhere around the world with process engineers, automation technicians, project managers, or together with IT and industrial partners over the entire lifecycle of your chemical plant.

Asset Performance Management

Asset Performance Management

Systematic monitoring and maintenance can prolong the lifetime of plant components, improve process safety, and thus greatly increase plant availability. In this way, Asset Performance Management makes an important contribution toward ensuring your systems run smoothly. 

Condition Monitoring

Condition Monitoring

Measurement and analytical equipment are part of any fertilizer plant and needed to monitor and optimize the process. We support you as you work toward achieving maximum efficiency during granulation, drying, or cooling.

Drive Technology

Drive Technology

Our drive technology is equipped for extreme conditions and furnished with explosion protection and numerous certifications. When integrated into the control system, data from the field becomes valuable information that contributes to the safe control of the entire plant.

Compressors

Compressors

The use of state-of-the-art technologies and tried-and-tested compressor units offering a high level of stability, flexible design, and a high efficiency rating is very important in terms of the economic efficiency of the fertilizer plant as a whole.

In complex chemical plants, powerful compressor solutions are needed that are suitable for a wide range of process requirements. You can increase your plant’s efficiency 

Turbines for steam generation

Turbines for steam generation

Our steam turbines are used either as a generator drive or as a mechanical drive for pumps and compressors. The modular design used for all steam turbine types ensures a high level of flexibility and availability, and short delivery times.
