Due to the scale of the plant, the customer uses a significant volume of water, and its quality is paramount for the reliability of the plant.
After experiencing a one-week shutdown due to a corrosion issues that led to significant production losses, the plant set out to find a solution that would optimize treatment processes and prevent future unplanned shutdowns.
SUEZ proposed a comprehensive treatment program, including chemicals, equipment and digital solutions to ensure maximized asset protection and efficiency.
Our digital portfolio was added to provide continuous monitoring and alarms on critical parameters such as phosphates, chlorine, pH, conductivity, and dispersant. TrueSense* for Cooling, a state-of-the-art chemical automation technology, was installed on each cooling network.
TrueSense ensures continuous dosing of the right product and quantity, resulting in ultimate system performance and cost optimization.
The InSight database for the customer site now comprises 95 assets, monitoring 475 parameters and pulling in more than 330,000 data points annually.
In addition, eight Remote Tank Monitoring sensors have been implemented. These tank-level sensors connect into InSight to monitor the chemical stock and automatically reorder when needed.
Our digital solutions are working together to help the customer improve system reliability, work more efficiently, and most importantly, continue to deliver on its commitments to customers.
