“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent." -Calvin Coolidge

Virtualized PlantPAx System Improves Consistency and Throughput

The Calumet Specialty Products synthetic lubricants plant ran with little automation and required operators to manually track and record process data. To improve consistency and increase throughput, Calumet implemented a completely virtualized PlantPAx process automation system. Harnessing the software capabilities, data collection and batch reporting are now fully integrated, consistent, and cost efficient. The virtualized platform provides a cost-effective connection to valuable data offsite so that the plant staff can address issues remotely, saving hours in maintenance time and costs.
