ISC provides independent, high quality control engineering consultancy services to the process industries.
ISC specialises in:
Our simulation models are always validated to the highest standards against plant data from production or prototype testing, to ensure that the simulation accurately represent the real system.
Optimal control solutions can range from simple classical feedback/feedforward to advanced control, such as model-based methods like MPC. Nevertheless, simplicity remains a key objective in our solutions, providing performance criteria can be met.
Our clients include Johnson Matthey, LGE, and DSM.
A chemical company wanted to greatly reduce the size of a mixing vessel to minimise waste when changing recipes. A dynamic model was built to assess the viability of level control and the impact on composition and wider process operations.
Use of a dynamic model to determine vessel size for a new chemical plant and to validate effect on upstream and downstream operations prior to being commissioned.
Manual operation for an important level controller had become the norm due to instability when in automatic. Two problems were identified - unreliable level measurement and poor tuning. A plan to deploy a different sensor design and subsequent retuning was put in place to solve the problem.
