An emulsion polymer process was producing off-spec product in 10% of its batches. By implementing advanced batch control, they were able to completely eliminate the bad batches.
Final product recipes usually involve a combination of many raw materials from various suppliers. Therefore, setting specifications on each of these incoming materials separately is an unreliable metric since the final quality is affected by the simultaneous combination of all raw materials and their properties. ProSensus worked with Mondelez, a global food manufacturer, to establish [...]
Specifications on individual properties are often misleading. ProSensus calculates multivariate specification limits so you can accept/reject and compensate for variations in raw materials. Read about examples in the chemical, pharmaceutical, and food industries.
Irving Pulp & Paper chose ProSensus to create a soft sensor to stabilize their lime kiln process. Using real-time process measurements and images from a camera in the kiln, ProSensus developed a soft sensor that predicted kiln temperature hours in advance.
Multivariate analysis (MVA) is a powerful tool that leading polyolefin companies use to gain powerful insights into their process and advance their product development efforts. ProSensus has the experience and expertise to build a global multi-block model that represents your entire process from start to end. This approach allows you to build a predictive model [...]
What are bioplastics? The term "bioplastics" is often used interchangeably with "biodegradable plastics". However, the most commonly used definition, as defined by the industry advocate European Plastics, states that a bioplastic is bio-based, biodegradable or both1. Packaging Digest provides a useful visual interpretation of this definition: Definition of Bioplastics2 Durable Biodegradable (partly) Bio-based [...]
