With the advent of carbon credit economies, the application of ULTRAMAX available from Ultra-Dynamics is expected to increase because of the technology’s capability to improve process efficiency without the need to retrofit expensive hardware.
The ULTRAMAX technique of dynamic optimisation has been applied to the optimisation of process performances for over 25 years.
The areas that ULTRAMAX has been particularly successful are those that consume energy and hence produce greenhouse gas emissions.
Since 1982, ULTRAMAX has been applied to many industries including:
- Paper industry
- Chemical industry
- Plastics industry
- Power Generation
- Food Processing
- Glass production
- Coal production including froth flotation and mining
- Pharmaceutical manufacturing
Unlike the Neural Network approach, ULTRAMAX is fast to implement and provides immediate process improvements with safety and simplicity.
ULTRAMAX adapts readily to change and the models generated take into account uncontrolled inputs so that a typical optimisation project takes 6 to 8 weeks compared to a Neural Network project that would take up to 9 months to complete.
