THE DIGITAL SERVICE PLATFORM

FOR COMPONENTS OF CHEMICAL PRODUCTION PLANTS

START LISTENING TO YOUR HEAT EXCHANGER

For the first time, SCHMIDTSCHE SCHACK has connected existing heat exchangers with the Internet of Things (IoT). Zero.One is a system for the sensor-based analysis of the components of an industrial plant. The specially developed sensors for the system give real-time readings of the process heat exchanger's operating parameters and the status of its components. On this basis, Zero.One's algorithms show, for example, whether threshold values are being exceeded, give recommendations concerning optimal utilization of the process heat exchanger, and schedule service work to ensure minimum downtime. With this functionality, Zero.One increases the efficiency of the system as a whole.

HOW DOES ZERO.ONE WORK?

The special sensors developed by SCHMIDTSCHE SCHACK measure temperatures, pressures, mass flows, material thicknesses and other critical values as they are occurring in the high-temperature gas-conducting segments of heat exchangers. On a continuous basis, algorithms automatically analyze the current status and performance data of the system and compare these data with historical system data and product design information.

In customized dashboards, Zero.One then provides key information on the exchanger's current status, performance data, risks and gives system prognoses in clear, easy-to-understand displays. In addition, recommendations are given, that give customers a true added value in the management of their plant equipment.

WITH ZERO.ONE, SCHMIDTSCHE SCHACK HAS SUCCEEDED IN DIGITALIZING INDIVIDUAL PROCESS HEAT EXCHANGERS THUS FACILITATING OPTIMAL PLANT USAGE IN KEEPING WITH INDUSTRY 4.0 STANDARDS.
