Problem

  • Leakage in the heat exchanger – outlet temperature is higher than expected.

How SAM GUARD Helped

  • Identified and alerted of a leak in the heat exchanger hours before it was verified in the field.
  • Repeatedly alerted on changes of behavior between tags of temperature input & output in heat exchanger.
  • Presented via charts, allowing for easy identification of problem in the heat exchanger.

Value

  • Heat exchanger’s cold side gasket fixed.
  • SAM GUARD  gave the alerts when the productivity was still intact. If there were no alerts, the stripper would have been less efficient, and less product – fire retardant in this case – would have been manufactured.
