When a plant suffered from coking problems and shutdowns as its product cooled, engineers used TrendMiner to determine how to keep the factory operational.

Use Case: Reducing Energy Consumption of a Falling Film Evaporator

Process experts used TrendMiner to identify inlet and steam flow timeframes and help control steam loss in a two-part filtration process.

A starch manufacturer requires a coagulator to operate continuously, so engineers used TrendMiner to find out why one was failing more frequently.

This plant lost 25% of the particles that dropped through its prill tower until engineers discovered while using TrendMiner that cooler temperatures made a better product.

A utility gained $260,000 in business value after TrendMiner helped it determine when to calibrate the inlet valves for its natural gas generator.

Yield Increase Through Cycle-Time Reduction

Within four hours of using TrendMiner, chemical engineers learned why a batch reactor produced some batches at a lower quality than others.

Using TrendMiner features, chemical engineers can forecast the normally unpredictable useful life of a catalyst bed for more accurate production scheduling.

Use Case: Optimize Operating Conditions for Heat Exchanger
Use Case: Prevention of Unwanted Flare Spikes

When a faulty valve caused unwanted flare spikes and environmental concerns, engineers used TrendMiner to find the root of the problem.

Process experts used TrendMiner’s monitoring system to compare batches and learn optimal parameters for pH, moisture, and percent of unsulfated matter.
