A cloud-based platform to optimize efficiency and minimize production interruptions

By Mary Page Bailey |

The InFocus Online Platform uses secure, near-realtime data to optimize plant performance and efficiency, helping users make informed decisions and collaborate more easily. The platform has been tested and piloted with early adopters and has already been fully deployed in multiple facilities. InFocus is offered for two solution areas: the Unit Monitoring tool enables timely technical insights to improve process performance by drawing on this company’s technical and operational experience, the monitoring tool provides users with easier access to expertise, early identification of potential operational concerns and in-depth analysis; and the Lube Optimization Model includes lube hydrocracker and dewaxing technology modules, which can be run independently or linked. Each module predicts process performance, product yields and qualities based on key operating variables such as average reactor temperature, space velocity, pressure, product fractionation cut point and separation efficiency. The predictive tool enables users to quickly and cost effectively test the impact of feedstock and operational changes on lube product yields and quality. The tool can also be tuned to match actual unit performance, enabling users to evaluate feed flexibility and optimize product mix. — ExxonMobil Catalysts and Licensing LLC, Houston
