Before starting a root cause analysis to set up new monitors and alerts, engineers used TrendMiner to calculate steam balance.

Energy Balance Models

This petrochemical plant used TrendMiner to create energy balance models and determine when 17 bar steam consumption was excessive.

When a low-density polyethylene reactor suddenly shutdown after maintenance, engineers used TrendMiner to determine it was human error.

Root Cause Analysis To Avoid Waste Gas Emission

Engineers used TrendMiner to find the root cause of waste gas emission spikes quickly, which improved safety and helped the company achieve net-zero operations.

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

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

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

When engineers found deviations in quality, they used TrendMiner to compare batches. With this insight, they realized the melting cycle was ending too early.
