Process efficiency and production reliability are the largest source of lost
revenue for the majority of plant operations. More than 75% of physical
assets are under process control; however, 60-70% of all control loops
under perform, and contribute to preventable losses. Many control loops
demonstrate excessive process variability and some studies have shown
that 40-50% of control loops are in manual control. The main reasons for
this include poor loop health, tuning and control strategy design.
Spartan’s LoopCheck™ audits and the Top 50™ Control Loop program
deliver sustainable improvements in process reliability and performance.
Our systematic methodology critically ranks the importance of control
loop assets, identifies the linkages and effect on process reliability or
performance, integrates technology for control loop health assessment
and provides the expertise to execute plans for corrective action.
Plant operations lose millions of dollars in revenue each year due to under performing control loops.
Through the application of
Spartan’s Top 50™ Control
Loop reliability program, our
customer realized signifi cant
improvements in reliability
and energy efficiency resulting
in nearly $5 million in annual savings.
