Maximize Throughout Without Capital Expenditures
5 Aug 2019 at 12:00am
Maximize seasonal performance, without capital expenditures, by deploying rental solutions for supplementary cooling or heating, with very high benefit-to-cost ratios.
The end-game is to increase production without additional layers of complexity for process assets that may only be needed part of the year. Rental portable equipment allows owners to consider opportunities that were not traditionally available. For example, a seasonal limitation may require modular chillers to be deployed only during the summertime, avoiding the capital cost of an underutilized permanent system.
Temporary Heat Exchangers Keep Plants Running Profitably
5 Aug 2019 at 12:00am
Plants are always striving to optimize operations. Given that they are usually operating far beyond their design limits, heat exchangers are often a bottleneck to increasing capacity or maintaining product split.
During the summertime, many process units often experience cooling limitations. Usually, these are due to warmer cooling tower water or because fin fans have become less effective. During a turnaround, vessels need to be ‘steamed out’ to remove containments, which requires additional heat exchangers. In addition, chillers and additional exchangers are often used as part of novel approaches to quickly cool hydrotreater, hydrocracker, and reforming catalyst before opening a vessel.
This paper demonstrates how temporary heat exchangers can be installed to solve these problems and streamline catalyst cool downs. A case study shows how a temporary heat exchanger solution helped an ethylene oxide producer avert leaking product to the atmosphere. This solution not only helped the producer avoid steep fines, but it also yielded tens of millions of dollars of profit that would otherwise have been lost.
Breathe New Life into the Customer Journey

If you want your customers to enjoy seamless, personalized experiences, you need to treat them like people. That means marketing to the person — not the device. When you know a customer’s interests, wants, and needs — perhaps even before they do — you’ve succeeded at becoming a true experience business. For some, this may require a shift from analytics as a tool to analytics as a way of life. It may also mean evolving corporate or office culture.
