Our solutions

Many manufacturing industries have increased focus on how to improve the machine efficiency and the energy efficiency of their heaters, dryers, evaporators, separators, presses, and other general production units.

One of the major challenges originates from the fact that the incoming material varies, and therefore the outgoing quality, the process time, the energy consumption and consequently the yield vary. These variations are in general not small. As a consequence, quality and yield is not optimal and more energy and more hours are used than needed.

The variations in outcome and in efficiency are, as indicated above, partly a consequence of the incoming variations. Often the variations are not reduced and sometimes they are even amplified, despite the fact that the processes usually are controlled on timescales that are much smaller than the actual process time. In fact, most process controllers, including PID controllers, do not take any process behaviour or knowledge of the incoming material into account.

CORE’s advanced process control technology takes process history as well as available information of the incoming material into account. CORE’s process controllers build a data driven process model that is used to predict process variations and adjust accordingly. Furthermore, as the process conditions are changed, the controller adapts to these changes, ensuring that the process is running optimally.

Because the process behaviour is taken into account, variations are in general substantially reduced – typically by 30 – 70 %. The advanced controllers substantially reduce energy costs, minimize bottle necks, increase capacity and yield and deliver high quality uniform end products. The advanced process control offered by CORE delivers substantial savings, a quick ROI and a short payback period.
