Petrochemical Production

Petrochemical plant

No two facilities are the same. Even after 50 years, we don't take anything for granted.

Chemical production facilities are among the most complex sites to monitor. Depending on your products and processes, you may have a variety of source-specific NSPS requirements. You may also have units which fall under parts of the rule covering boilers, power generation or co-generation. NESHAPS rules come into play and we even have customers in the Acid Rain Program due to their size and sale of excess power from a co-generation plant.

On the other hand, your facillity might have to comply with rules designed for petroleum refineries, with all their recent changes and increased requirements. Many chemical production facilities also have consent decrees requiring tailored monitoring and reporting. Finally, you may need to comply with the rules of your local permitting agency.

A mix of CEMS, CPMS and COMS might be required, depending on the processes taking place at the facility. And, the flow of material through the equipment you monitor, with all of its attendant processes and timings, is unique to your environment.

Assisting our customers with complex monitoring environments like these have pushed us to develop a highly flexible platform dedicated to data acquisition and handling for continuous monitoring.

A Flexible and Stable Platform

We support key activities required in any continuous monitoring scenario, including: data acquisition, validation, averaging, alarms, QA/QC, data review, recordkeeping, reporting, and data retention are all built-in. 

We provide:
  • Configuration performed through user-friendly graphical interfaces, not through programming or ladder logic
