Automation and informationization is a systematic project. The petroleum and chemical industry is a major category of the process industry. The promotion of major equipment intelligence will help promote the upgrading and upgrading of traditional industries and scientifically realize energy conservation and emission reduction. This is the information that the reporter obtained at the 7th (2008) China Petroleum and Chemical Automation Technology Annual Conference held in Beijing on July 12.
Chen Minghai, secretary-general of the China Petroleum and Chemical Automation Application Association, said that in the synthetic ammonia industry, the use of optimized control technology can increase the accuracy of nitrogen/hydrogen indicators from Â±0.5% to Â±0.1%, thereby greatly increasing the reaction efficiency and energy consumption. Significantly reduced, product quality increased and more stable. At the same time, as the petroleum and chemical industry is a high-risk industry, the use of automatic control technology can make the device run more smoothly, and can automatically alarm and cut off the reaction when the reaction parameters exceed the limit, playing an important role in promoting safe production and making up for lack of management. In addition, the automatic control technology avoids the fluctuation of the reaction. At the same time, it also avoids the discharge of pollutants caused by some material overdose and the phenomena of running, running, dropping, and leaking, and is beneficial to the protection of the environment.
It is understood that among the 16 key technical and equipment specialties promoted by the state during the â€œEleventh Five-Year Planâ€ period, major engineering automation control systems and key precision testing instruments have been identified as the key to improving the level of automation and intelligence for major (integrated) equipment. It can be said that automation and informatization are not only related to the revitalization of the entire equipment manufacturing industry and the process of new industrialization, but also to the transformation of traditional industries including chemicals, the promotion of refined management and energy conservation, and the improvement of corporate profits and production operations. All play a huge role.
At present, in the domestic industrial fields, the overall level of automation and informationization in the petroleum and chemical industries is relatively high. However, due to the lack of overall planning, the level of automation and informatization of SMEs is relatively low. Many companies do not pay attention to the collection, processing, and application of various basic data in the production and operation process, resulting in little success in automation and information construction and affecting the process of automation and informatization in the industry. To this end, Chen Minghai reminded relevant companies to comprehensively and systematically understand automation and informatization, integrate automation, informationization, and corporate strategic goals, and integrate software and hardware construction, personnel training, process reengineering, and management upgrades. We must promote progress in order to achieve practical results.
