Chlorine Gas manufacture, on-line flow allocation, storage.
Production increase from 'OR' project, small LP gives quick benefits
Gas flow allocation, production, storage.
The job started out as a project in operations research to model the annual usage
patterns of a toxic gas in a big chemicals complex, to work out policies for the balance
of production, demand and storage, with the over-riding constraint that the gas could
never be allowed to escape because of the hazard it would create for the population
nearby. Production and simultaneous usage would rarely balance without intervention and
storage was expensive and limited. To make matters more difficult, the available electric
power, a key input to the reaction process to make the gas, from the adjacent utility
company varied as consumer demand in the towns nearby varied. Someone had to be allocating
flows and advising plant and process operators around the site on a minute by minute basis
round the clock.

|Invitation. McCann can help if you have a
design or operational problem that needs some technical support that is outside your
team's experience, some quantitative assessment of what is really the cause of the
difficulties, some design alternatives or just a fresh look by an intelligent
If you have a problem with the behaviour of a market sector, plant, process or item of equipment and would like to get a quantitative handle on it to improve yield or optimise performance, then contact me. I'm always ready to give a little time to discuss a new puzzle, in confidence, of course. We'll only worry about fees when there is some defined work. I can be flexible about how I work with you.
