Course Description

Plant integrity and reliability is the cornerstone of process plant optimization. For optimization benefits to be sustainable, production interruptions must be kept to a minimum which requires effective management of degradation processes that affect equipment and systems and effective inspection and maintenance strategies, plans and methods. Plant optimization can be an effective way to achieve improved profitability without the large investment associated with building a new plant.

Common industrial processes and systems, such as steam, cooling water, process heating, and electric motors consume most of the energy and offer significant opportunities for savings. Process changes such as advanced controls, new catalysts, and new technologies also present opportunities for plant optimization. This course will provide a comprehensive review of the various aspects of process plant integrity as the essential foundation for sustainable plant profitability and optimization.

Course Objectives

  • Assisting participants in recognizing and clearly understanding what plant optimization and energy conservation is all about – the drivers, the potential benefits, and how to realize them
  • Applying business focus of participants and equip them to make more contributions to sustainable plant profitability
  • Appraising the most attractive opportunities to identify energy savings
  • Describing the managerial tools the delegates can utilize to effectively optimize plant operations
  • Demonstrating practical and effective methods and tools to provide participants with the skills to perform technical and economic evaluations of the alternatives
