Maximization of Plant Value by Solving Manufacture-Related Problems

As the era of mass production shifts to high-mix low-volume production and onwards to globalization, more thorough quality (Q), cost (C), and delivery (D) management is required for chemical manufacturing. In addition to environmentally (E) sound management in order to establish a sustainable society, industry must also improve safety (S) and standardize and systematize the knowledge (K) of skilled employees as they retire.

To assist manufacturing plants in meeting the major challenges (Q, C, D, E, S, K) , Azbil provides measurement and control products and services and various other solution, along with suggested projects to maximize plant value. In keeping with its "human-centered" orientation, Azbil provides helpful support for improved productivity, added value creation, safe and stable operation, business continuity planning, human resource development, and transmission of technological know-how, and much more.

Customer and Case Study Overview Products and Services
Daikin Industries, Ltd., Kashima Plant

Daikin Industries, Ltd., Kashima Plant

The Daikin Industries Kashima Plant, which produces fluorochemical products for a industry, has recently focused on effective maintenance of control valves. The failure of a control valve has a greater impact on production than the failure of other instrumentation equipment used in plant operations, and control valves require large repair costs even in the course of regular maintenance. By switching from periodic maintenance to condition-based maintenance of these valves, the Kashima plant has significantly reduced maintenance costs and has established a system for quick handling of minor malfunctions and warning signs of future problems.

Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, Ibaraki Plant

Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, Ibaraki Plant

The Mitsubishi Chemical Ibaraki Plant, which produces a wide variety of petrochemical products in the Kashima Coastal Industrial Zone, has recently focused on control valves, which play an important role in production, in order to achieve reliable plant operation. The plant has selected a cloud service that analyzes and diagnoses the data on the condition of operating control valves that is detected by azbil Smart Valve Positioners, and has established a system to identify valve problems and warning signs in order to improve maintenance.

Showa Denko K.K., Kawasaki Plant

Showa Denko K.K., Kawasaki Plant

Showa Denko’s Kawasaki Plant in Ogimachi boasts a long history of development and manufacture of organic and inorganic chemical products.
In order to promote smart industrial safety using technology such as the Internet of Things (IoT), the company pays special attention to valves, which are indispensable for production.
To optimize maintenance work and reduce costs, Showa Denko utilizes Azbil’s smart valve positioners, valve diagnostic systems, and valve analysis and diagnosis services provided by specialist engineers.

NS Styrene Monomer Co., Ltd. Oita Works

NS Styrene Monomer Co., Ltd. Oita Works

With styrene monomer as its main product, NS Styrene Monomer Co., Ltd. (NSSM) meets a wide range of industrial needs. After repeated valve failures, the company’s Oita Works plant is now introducing smart valve positioners. The plant is also using a system to improve the monitoring of valve status. In this way, by providing a mechanism to track valve failure trends, a high level of plant operation stability is being achieved.
