The upgrade contains new embedded process intelligence that can assist plant operators make smart situational operating decisions and implement them decisions with modern advanced process control methods.
The OptimusTM Pellet optimizer leverages a highly detailed thermodynamic grate model, which is now backed by operational data. It can control basically all the relevant parts of the process, including gas fans and dampers, and indurating temperature profile, thus ensuring that the processes run at the desired operating range. Moreover, it issues advice and warnings to operators to reveal important information about process bottlenecks that may otherwise go unnoticed.
