Our company’s ultimate goal is to spread the use of ADEX technology in industry in the most convenient and profitable way. Thus, our Systems Department is in charge of producing and improving software platforms that allow the development of ADEX systems for the optimized control of industrial processes (see the Systems & Platforms Section).
The concept of Optimization Product (OP) is derived from the generic validity of the control & optimization strategies (COS) used in an ADEX system that has successfully been applied to a process which belongs to a kind of industrial processes.
An ADEX OP may be defined as follows:
“An ADEX OP is a field proven software product that: (i) has been designed based on generic ADEX COS for a kind of industrial processes; (ii) allows optimized control of any process of said kind; (iii) takes into account the different specific features of the members of said kind; (iv) can be easily installed in any commercial control system; (v) usually requires a simple configuration of structure variables to personalize the application to each specific process within said kind; (vi) provides configuration and supervision ergonomic interfaces, and (vii) comes along with manuals for implementation, operation and maintenance.”
Our Applications Department is in charge of developing and improving ADEX OPs. This is usually the result of the experience gained in several applications to processes of the same kind. Sometimes this R+D effort may be done in collaboration with one or several client companies that have processes of a kind or with ADEX associated companies that might have interest in developing a particular OP.
ADEX OPs have been developed in different industries and descriptions of their application are presented as case studies in the “Industries” Section. They are listed by industries as follows:
- Cement Mill Optimization System
- Cooler Optimization System
- Kiln Optimization System
- Mix Advanced Controller (MAC)
- Drum Level Optimization System
- Steam Temperatures Optimizer (STO)
- Naphtha Splitter Optimization System
- Sulphur Recovery Optimization System
- Biological Optimization System (BOS)
- PH Optimization System
