INCA MPC on a CAN granulation plant of Eurochem Antwerp
This paper describes the application of INCA MPC on a Calcium Ammonium Nitrate (CAN) granulation process. Although APC
is a common tool in many process industries, like refining and petro-chemical, the technology is less introduced and common in fertilizer industry and only very few applications can be found for granulation processes.
The production of solid material is often more difficult to control compared to liquid or gas plants. The limited amount of measurements available and the fact that they are not always reliable due to heavy production circumstances, make the application of Advanced Process Control even more challenging.
