Hello,
It is not just the numbers that matter. For maintaining inventory or to take care of re-order levels, these numbers might serve well. Any sincere optimization efforts can cut it down by at least 50%.This is not only a Opex (Operating expenses) saver but will mitigate downstream unit difficulties with silicone chemistry. Real optimization requires monitoring of coke, heavy oil, water, vapor phase Levels on a continuous basis on DCS screen and concomitant actions in field(like calibration of metering pumps, calibration of instruments, timely operator actions – when to start/stop AF dosing pumps at what dosage rate etc.)
