The project scope included a reactor composition controller and virtual online analyzer for MFR and xylene solubility. Quality control information and automated transition records for four reactors were also included.

Optimize feed treatment for polypropylene process

To realize full activity from polymerization catalysts, feed streams need to be as clean as possible from all contaminants and catalyst poisons. A very low level of even a single catalyst poison can reduce catalyst activity drastically.
