Targets Gas Plant Performance
Barry D. Payne & Associates Inc. offer Advanced Process Control
strategies designed for multiple platforms that deliver plant
improvements with your current system today!
On Target Solutions include
Advanced NGL Fractionation Control technology that delivers
performance superior to conventional advanced
control. This technology runs in your current DCS or PLC, and
requires no host or supervisory computer.
Whether your facility operates a single Y-grade (EP
mix) splitter, or a multi-tower "Frac" train through DIB and Gasoline,
most NGL fractionation processes can benefit from our simple but
effective GPFrac strategies.
- Increase yields of higher-value product and reduce
energy costs, or
- Increase throughput up to equipment limits.
Some or all of the control system-based strategies can
be commissioned at a fraction of the cost it takes to actually install
the DCS or PLC and field devices.
Pressure-compensated temperature and models with material balance and
separation-based control. Relaxes control of less-valued product

forward signals are incorporated into decoupled control strategies
that smoothly handle upstream disturbances.

The GPFrac strategies have been utilized to automatically keep the plant
on target while operators deal with plant upsets such as compressor trips, heater trips,
or amine system problems.
