i-CDU is your best option to optimize crude oil distillation systems. Results implemented on-site verify the power inside i-CDU to simultaneously optimize product yields and energy consumption for profit maximization. By optimizing distillation units and heat exchanger network together, i-CDU maximizes the separation and energy efficiency of the column and mitigates operational problems such as column flooding and energy bottlenecks.
|Sensitivity analysis||Identifies major trade-offs between key performance indicators and provides valuable insights to the decision-making process.|
|Investment-free optimization projects||Identifies operational changes that maximize profits and mitigate operational problems. Typically delivers 5% in energy savings and 0.10 €/bbl in yield improvement.|
|Retrofit projects||Low-risk retrofit designs for the heat exchanger networks, delivering up to 15% in energy savings.|
