Optimization of existing process & equipment

Optimization of existing process & equipment to improve plant performance and capacity utilization

An economical approach!

Whenever there is a discussion concerning the plant performance improvement or capacity increase, usually the first idea is to install energy saving/ additional equipment or implementation of modern technologies. Only a very few sugar factories consider to look inside to find the inefficiencies and bottlenecks in the existing process and equipment, but most sugar factories consider to go for new equipment for performance and capacity increase. Implementation of new equipment is not a bad idea, but it is an expensive approach.

IPRO Group carries out many plant audits in different parts of the world every year and suggests required measures to its clients in a stepwise approach to enhance plant performance and capacity. The audit reports also highlight the CAPEX and ROI for each step. In most cases the step 1 is the optimization of existing process and equipment which usually requires very little investments but significantly does improve the plant performance and capacity.

Summary of results of various plant audits highlighting the benefits of equipment and process optimization:

  • In many cases, steam saving in the range of 3 -5 % has been achieved with very little investments, awareness and better lab routines.
  •  
  • In several cases, the plant capacity increase in the range of 500 – 1500 tcd was possible with optimization and debottlenecking.
  •  
  • The optimization measures can be implemented quickly and even during the crushing season to start getting the benefits.
  •  
  • Improved equipment capacity utilization
  •  
  • In several cases, the requirement of new equipment was abolished which has saved a lot of money required for new equipment, civil & structure, installation and operational cost
  •  
  • Optimization adds no complexity in the process whereas, any new equipment adds some complexity in the operation
  •  
  • Manpower saving
  •  
  • Very fast return on investment
