NAPCON {Advisor Column} - NAPCON

NAPCON Advisor Column

Do you know what is behind the corner? Look to the future of your plant processes with true Industrial AI.

NAPCON Advisor Column for the distillation column is an advanced AI solution to maximize the yields of most valuable products in fractional distillation. As an AI assistant for operators and production engineers Advisor predicts the process future behavior and gives what-if -operation options and operation suggestions.

NAPCON Advisor Column optimizes crude column cut points and thereby fractions of different yields to make further refining and blending process premise optimal. Simultaneously it keeps human-in-the-loop to improve situational awareness and preparedness to process deviations and recovery.

NAPCON Advisor helps you easily reach the true limits of a plant with situation-specific optimization whether there is a need to reduce carbon emissions, optimize utilities or maximize certain yields.
