Digitalization of production processes and paperless production in fine and specialty chemicals
For many years, fine and specialty chemicals markets were on a robust growth path.
However, there is now significant overcapacity in some areas, with resulting cost pressure on manufacturers. This increases the pressure to improve both process efficiency and quality in production. Digital solutions for production management help to increase process transparency and lay the foundation for optimizing all aspects of the value chain.
Data pool for condition-based maintenanceMaximum plant availability is one of the basic requirements of an efficient and economical process industry. The key to this is asset performance management in conjunction with condition-based preventive and predictive maintenance. An end-to-end digital system solution provides the necessary condition data from each individual field instrument. As a result, signs of wear are detected at an early stage. Unplanned plant shutdowns become rare exceptions.
All process parameters constantly in viewDigital process control makes production processes more manageable than ever before. The field device level is currently visible at all times, right down to the individual sensor and actuator. A digital twin of the process flow allows all recorded process data to be merged in real time. This makes interrelation recognizable and comprehensible. Data become actionable information and allow targeted analyses and decisions. Not only in the control room, but also via mobile apps, either remotely or directly on site.
