On the industrial plant performance & operating point drifting phenomenon
Abstract: The effective performance of various processing plants is reliant on many contributing factors. Such factors include equipment availability and operating performance, operating practices, technical influence and the ability to control the process in a consistent and high performing manner. Operating objectives need to be established to allow for product quality and throughput targets to be achieved throughout. This paper elaborates on an assessment of various categories of plants to demonstrate the wide dominance of the theme and aims to assess the performance of specific industrial plants, namely, Coal Handling Preparation Plants and Bauxite Beneficiation Plants against these parameters. The assessment will focus on the process as well as the control schemes supporting these process objectives.
