Specialty chemical company increased reliability and profitability at an aging plant with SIO

A 60-year-old site produced a high margin specialty chemical, but the aging steam system infrastructure created reliability problems and high operating costs. With SIO, 5DN professionals and client resources were able to develop a set of solutions that dramatically decreased steam consumption in the process and moved the plant from a centralized steam system to a decentralized design. The set of solutions lowered costs, increased reliability and expanded capacity.
