IT and Automation to Reduce Production Costs

As chemical industry processes chemicals, especially those dealing with hazardous chemicals, it has to depend on process automation to a great extent. So far as advantages of automation are concerned, this could be attributed to the following:

  • Higher production rates
  • Increased productivity
  • Efficient use of materials
  • Better product quality
  • Improved safety
  • Shorter workweeks for labour and reduced factory lead times.

Any Chief Executive Officer or entrepreneur of the chemical industry will say that “Higher output and increased productivity” justify the use of automation.


Ethernet, IT Solutions and Automation – The Safe and Secure Benefit

Process automation, that controls the different process parameters, leads to less variability in the process, thereby producing consistent quality product. This ensures efficient use of materials resulting in lesser scrap – meaning reduction of cost of product.

Automation in chemical plants helps a company maintain regulatory compliance by improving safety, which in turn reduces production down time, relieves workers from injuries, and eliminates associated costs of litigation and damage to environment.
