Abstract

Several optimization attempts were focused on vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) furnaces. As such, the complicated relations among operational variables makes it hard to analyze EDC cracking furnaces on productivity alone. Multivariate statistical techniques were introduced to clarify the correlation among process variables and quality variables. By optimizing the analyzed correlation models, the VCM production rate increased by more than 10% while maintaining the same VCM purity limits.
