Mr. Ger Schmitz works as Senior Key Account Manager within Intertek plc. based in Geleen, NL. He takes care of the contracts and relationship with Intertek’s customers for Process Analytical Technology services (system integration of on line analysers) The Process Analytical Technology (PAT) combines analytical chemistry and process technology. PAT installations are used world-wide for Process Optimization, Asset Control, Automated Process Control (APC), Plant Safety and Environmental Measurements. The final goal is improvement of the plant performance.
The last decades over 40 analyzer houses and more than 500 analyzer systems were delivered. We supply our products to most industries including power generation, hydrocarbon processing, industrial chemicals, polymer production, waste water treatment as well as emission monitoring.
Intertek is an independent supplier for system integration of online analyzer systems working closely together with different OEM suppliers of analyzer systems. The turn key project service consists of Engineering – Procurement – Construction (EPC).
He is focused on innovative solutions for customers to run their plant facilities by generating max. production yields and meeting regulatory requirements in a safe way.
Intertek possesses a suite of innovations used for a variety of activities throughout the hydrocarbon supply chain. These have been successfully applied online, at-line and in the laboratory for many applications.
This talk will focus on several areas of Intertek innovation, the first part of the talk will focus on the Interpret technology, which is a chemometric modelling software based on near infrared (NIR) spectra and currently used in applications. These cover the full hydrocarbon supply chain from pipeline modelling, through refineries (feedstock quality monitoring and blend optimisation) to fuels blending (gasoline, jet, diesel etc.).
Interpret uses Near Infrared (NIR) spectra to predict crude oil composition and is a very quick method, typically a prediction takes a few minutes and generates full crude assays with many properties including (but not limited to): API gravity, Sulphur, Total Acid Number (TAN), Pour Point, True Boiling Point (TBP) and TBP fraction properties such as specific gravity and molecular weight. This information can then be used for feedstock valuation and realtime economic optimisation.
Second part of this talk is about Process Analytical Technology (PAT). Intertek is an independent system integrator for on line analyzer systems, which are used world-wide for Process Optimization, Asset Control, Automated Process Control (APC), Plant Safety and Environmental Measurements. By using our comprehensive in-house expertise in analyzer systems, our customers are able to monitor their plant operations in the most optimal way.
Since our establishment over 40 analyzer houses and more than 400 analyzer systems were delivered. We supply our products to most industries including power generation, hydrocarbon processing, industrial chemicals, polymer production, waste water treatment as well as emission monitoring. Our products provide our customers with efficient ways to improve performance and expand capabilities.
The services portfolio of Intertek consists of:
