Process measurements & optimisation
Meeting capacity targets does not guarantee profitable operation. Carrying out regular process measurements uncovers process bottlenecks which are conductive to excessive energy consumption.
Exploiting the latest measurement equipment, our team analyses the collected readings and recommends measures for de-bottlenecking the process, thus ensures the most efficient energy consumption rates which boils down into improved margins.
If plant nominal capacity is commercially required but technically unattainable, then you certainly should consider upgrading your production line. We have a long record of successful rehabilitation projects entailing extensive process modifications, replacing equipment and raw mix studies.
Capacity upgrades are always a feasible option versus embarking on significant investments for constructing new lines.
Standard operating procedures
Human errors occur, especially in absence of standard manuals or expert supervision. Creating standard operating procedures for all plant areas serves as a knowledge archive that leads to reduced incident stoppages resulting from human faults. Our technical centre launches, steers and implements Standard Operating Procedures (SOPS) through driving the plant teams to document their activities, evaluate them against best practice and delivers perfected SOPS.
Our client is also better-off through documenting critical O&M knowledge.
Inventory management system
Efficiently managing your inventory allows for a smooth operation and maintenance. Ensuring the availability of security spares safeguards the plant against interrupted operation and permits only for planned stoppages.
Developing an effective inventory management system entails:
- A complete list of all recommended spare parts according to OEM.
- Spare parts delivery planning
- Description and classification of spare parts
- Coding of spare parts
- Defining the minimum and maximum stock according to the delivery cycle: production cost and delivery time.
