PID tuning and process control services

Your reliability partner

In a typical plant, many controls and processes are not operating optimally, which can result in less stable production, higher raw material usage, increased energy consumption and lower yield. Metso’s PID tuning and process control services are designed to identify controls impacting performance and help you return to optimal production.

Benefits

Measure and report on performance and profitability

Monitor performance over time, and identify the controls that have a negative impact on process performance. Deliver targeted, actionable information to the right people every day.

Get to the root cause of every problem

Quickly identify the root cause of poor control. Recommend corrective actions to repair, upgrade, tune, adjust setpoints, or change strategy.

Prioritize corrective actions

Prioritize corrective actions to the areas that have the most significant impact on production efficiency, where economic value is greatest, and where you will get the fastest economic payback.

Sustain performance

Continuously monitor the plant and immediately recommend corrective actions to sustain plant performance.  Track and monitor business KPIs and technical index for optimal operation.

Hidden PID tuning and performance issues are costing you money

Control performance services

A typical process plant is losing millions annually from poorly-performing control systems. Generally about 20-30% of controls are in manual mode, and up to 85% of control loops have sub-optimal settings.

Furthermore,  20-40% of controllers are oscillating, adding to plant variability, and hurting reliability. With so many issues, it can be hard to monitor, prioritize, and resolve process problems.

Metso’s control performance experts can provide solutions to these problems. Our PID tuning and process control services identify incorrectly configured control loops, root causes of issues, and prepare corrective actions that optimize your control performance.

Expertune PlantTriage

Expertune PlantTriage is a loop optimization software which continually monitors your plant to identify issues whenever they occur. Allowing PID tuning and much more, this award-winning software was designed and developed by a team with hundreds of years of controls experience. 

Expertune Global Loop Optimizer SaaS

Expertune Global Loop Optimizer SaaS deliver safe, world-class PID loop tuning to every plant in your company. It is an optimal software if you have multiple plants and more than 100 loops to tune. 

Expertune PID Loop Optimizer

Expertune PID Loop Optimizer is a PID tuning software especially for single plants and locations with 100 loops or less to tune. With Expertune PID Loop Optimizer you can eliminate guesswork and stabilize your plant quickly.

Control performance service

Control performance service is a turn-key solution to plant performance problems and issues with poorly performing control systems.

Control performance evaluation

Metso’s control performance evaluation provides an expert assessment of your process controls, giving an overall picture of problem areas as well as their impact on production costs and volume.

Expertune ValveTriage service

Expertune ValveTriage service detects valves and instruments that disturb the process to create a foundation for efficient maintenance planning and action prioritization. These findings are then prioritized according to the severity of the problems and the economic significance of the devices.
