APC - Etherification

APC uses a model-based predictive control technology that drives the process towards the desired targets through the manipulation of several variables simultaneously while observing all process constraints. APC has a proven track record in delivering business objectives: reducing energy costs, increasing yields and improving operability.

As a Process Licensor, catalyst Manufacturer and Advanced Control Technology Supplier, Axens Horizon combines all the necessary expertise for successful Etherification Process APC projects.

Our control strategy for the Etherification Process consists of:

  • Main reactor(s)
    • Control alcohol/reactants stoechiometric ratio
    • Optimize reactor temperature profile
  • Reactor column
    • Control alcohol/reactants stoechiometric ratio
    • Control reactor outlet temperature
    • Control internal traffic to save energy
    • Control quality of Ether and Raffinate
