Energy consumption monitoring
The IMPROVE system can also monitor energy and chemical consumption. In this case it is not just a matter of monitoring waste, stops and produced pieces, but of acquiring, monitoring and processing thousands of variables.
In sectors where chemicals (pharmaceutical or paper industry) are used, a variable that is out of control can cause downtime or products that do not meet requirements.
The constant consumption monitoring, allows work to reduce energy and chemical consumption, for the assessment of the plant and the implementation of a better system, regarding resources consumption and environmental impact.
How IMPROVE works
The first step, for the consumption monitoring is the modeling of the process. In this phase we proceed to the configuration of systems and sub-systems and to the insertion of the relative data and parameterization.
Then we move on to the variables properties setting, the type of control card, the domain and the specification limits.
IMPROVE then automatically acquires data directly from the plant’s DCS, in direct connection to sensors located in critical points, highlighting the out of control variables.
Finally, the advanced control charts are defined, that is a set of statistical models that allow us to predict any deviations compared to the reference values.
For each variable it is possible to draw up the control chart with its values over time. It will therefore be possible to visually verify any out of control. Here are some examples of user interfaces.
Raw materials optimization
IMPROVE allows the quantitative and economic optimization of the raw material use, being able to trace, starting from the establishment of the supplier lot and the registration of the raw material.
The energy consumption monitoring allows the precise calculation of the energy costs of each order. Here are some related screens.
