Why do refineries need AI-driven analysis? Or, get your analyzer to work for you

Why should process control be automated As a process engineer, you know that many types of analyzers have not brought full automation into your process control. Oftentimes the costly, human-intensive effort of model calibration, may cause a compromise on the quality of the analysis. Despite heavy investments in new technologies, poorly maintained analyzers result in […]

The Strategic Advantage of 4IR in Clean Fuels and Renewable

Biodiesel (B100):  The production of diesel-based fuels from plant-based oils (soy, corn, coconut, palm, canola, etc.), animal-based oils (chicken, beef, etc.), aquatic based oils (fish, krill, algae) and recyclable sources (used cooking oils, food processing, etc.).  Regardless of oil source, the manufacturing processes for conversion to fuel grade biodiesel are consistent from small scale oil […]

Learn how to avoid the blind spots for Oil & Gas/Petrochemical Process Control

There is tremendous profit margin to be earned by monitoring dark/opaque materials. Preventative maintenance is too restrictive.  The idea is not to limit process control from lack of primary data availability, accuracy and proper measurement. True “End to End Process Control”.    With 4IR Solutions’ proprietary Petroleum Analyser you can finally monitor dark or opaque materials. […]

4IR Comparison between NIR FT-IR and 3rd Generation NMR Technology

Abstract On-line Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) analyzers are beneficial in chemical and petroleum industries for qualitative and quantitative analyses of physical properties of process streams. NMR selectively specifies and quantifies hydrogen atoms with regard to the molecular structure of substances and their presence in mixtures. Its linear spectral response enables chemometrics to easily perform accurate […]

4IR Process analyzer system at the pipeline point of entry

The strategic importance of placing a Process NMR system at the pipeline point of entry is to verify that the pipeline tender is fully intact and meets delivery specifications.  Placement of the on-line analyzer at the point of entry verifies that the supplier’s product tender is on specification. Thus, removing liability of the supplier should such […]
