Plant Performance Optimization

The purpose of plant performance optimization is to ensure a consistent high return on investment as well as compliance with evolving manufacturing and environmental standards.

All Anhydro plants are designed and customized according to specific customer requirements. This usually depends on the particular application for which the plant is intended. SPX FLOW, however, takes pride in supplying Anhydro flexible plants that can be adapted later on to new applications, for example as new products are developed and put into production.

Return on investment
Relevant production Key Performance Indicators can be throughput per hour, solids content, particle size distribution, retention of flavours and aromas, energy consumption, maintenance periods etc. Customers are constantly looking for quality improvements that can impact throughput and unit costs.

SPX FLOW specialists assist customers in optimizing plant performance in relation to existing applications or adapting plant to new ones. In-depth knowledge of manufacturing processes and quality parameters means that this work invariably results in significant enhancements with a very short pay-back time.

Compliance
Manufacturing and environmental standards are constantly evolving. This applies to the plant itself in relation to sanitary, GMP and aseptic requirements. It can also apply to workplace regulations and environmental legislation requiring lower or complete absence of emissions, lower energy consumption, increased hygiene etc.

SPX FLOW specialists can assist partly by adjusting plant settings, training operators in new plant operation routines, and suggesting adaptations and retrofits to existing plant.
