Delek Refining implements Honeywell IIoT-based technology
The implementation delivers improved refinery performance to Delek Refining’s facility in Tyler, Texas.
Honeywell has announced that its Industrial Internet-of-Things-based (IIoT) Connected Performance Services (CPS) has been implemented by Delek Refining at its refinery in Tyler, Texas
Part of Honeywell's Connected Plant initiative, CPS leverages IIoT technologies and Honeywell UOP's services and domain expertise. Delek will utilise a CPS solution called Process Reliability Advisor to actively monitor process unit performance and detect anomalies.
CPS solutions take advantage of Honeywell UOP process and fault models, and are fed active plant data, which in turns allows the platform to relay performance information and process recommendations.
Zak Alzein, vice president for Honeywell UOP's CPS business, commented: "The Process Reliability Advisor leverages Honeywell UOP's deep troubleshooting experience and proprietary models to deliver detailed analysis and specific corrective recommendations days or months earlier than has ever been possible before."
Honeywell UOP's CPS also features Process Optimization Advisor, which actively monitors plant data in real-time, applying Honeywell UOP process models, big data analytics, as well as machine learning capabilities.
"This offering can save a refinery millions of dollars a year, helping to improve its profitability," commented Alzein.
"By bringing literally decades of experience to a refinery, Reliability Advisor can close the growing knowledge gap that is forming as these facilities become more complex and skilled personnel enter retirement."
Delek Refining is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Delek US Holdings, which manages a refinery that produces 75,000 barrels per day. The bulk of the Tyler refiner's production slates, which equates to 93%, is made up of light and high-value products, such as distillate fuels and gasoline.
