From adhesives to fertilizers, both batch and continuous chemical manufacturers rely on the fundamentals of process engineering to achieve consistent product quality. However, chemical manufacturing is often complex, making optimization challenging:
Heterogeneous material quality
Complex multi-step reaction dynamics
Noisy or sparse sensor information
Reducing the energy consumption of distillation is complex due to nonlinearities of upstream process disturbances that influence current operating conditions and process efficiency.
Basetwo’s modeling and optimization capabilities leverage industry-proven methods to accurately predict operating information, enabling engineers to rapidly react to changes in process conditions driven by upstream output or other disturbances.
From FCC to steam reforming or gasification units, conversion processes are usually the most complex unit operations in a chemical plant. Due to nonlinearities and raw material disturbances, controlling and operating conversion unit operations is challenging, let alone optimizing them.
Basetwo empowers process engineers with a low-code platform that provides an up-to-date digital representation of their conversion unit operations that enables real-time process understanding.
From evaporation to sublimation, effective crystallization requires highly specific conditions to ensure desired crystal shape and growth. In many cases, proper crystallization can have the highest impact on product yield and quality which makes optimal manufacturing challenging.
Leveraging ML process models in Basetwo allows engineers to predict and evaluate the influence of key process variables on final product quality without consuming precious manufacturing resources.
Digital Formula & Recipe Management
Maintaining the accuracy and consistency of recipes can be daunting for batch production operations.
Basetwo offers process engineers with the ability to assess and optimize recipes, increasing operational efficiency and flexibility by reducing product changeover time and improving product quality and consistency.
The platform allows users to abstract formulas and recipes from underlying control systems, which streamlines the introduction of new product processes enterprise-wide.
