Cristal, the world’s second-largest producer of titanium dioxide and a leading supplier of titanium chemicals, was faced with the need to meet changing government regulations and standards, and also calculate the risk associated with not doing so.
To meet these challenges, Cristal implemented Predix Asset Performance Management (Predix APM). This helped Cristal engineers see that they needed to better understand plant risk levels, reduce unexpected failures on critical equipment, and implement an inspection plan that used criticality as its basis rather than time.
Predix APM has enabled Cristal to reduce the risk of equipment failures by an estimated £2.12m a year, work towards a 56% reduction in required inspections and save an estimated £3.31m in inspection costs over 10 years.
These are just a few industrial companies that we’ve helped transform, but there are many more. At GE Digital, we work with over 1000 Predix-powered industrial customers around the world, across all industries. Read more of our customer’s stories here.
