Crude distillation unit (CDU) optimization
The use of multi-channel on-line FT-NIR analyzer technology for the optimization of an atmospheric distillation unit
CDU advanced process control is often implemented using a traditional chemical engineering approach through multiple control loops, heat/mass balances and pressure/ temperature/flow measurements.
This white paper demonstrates the use and advantages of FT-NIR as a multi-stream, multi-property analytical method for CDU optimization.
