IntelliFlux introduces next generation control software for water treatment and chemical process plants

IntelliFlux Controls, a pioneer in advanced automation and process control for membrane systems, will introduce its next generation Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based process control software for water treatment and process plant management.

IntelliFlux™ set new standards in optimising and lowering OPEX of over 60 membrane filtration systems around the world. The core AI and machine learning engines of IntelliFlux, the Augmented Process Recommendation & Industrial Control Optimisation Tools (APRICOT), was developed into a standalone software platform, on which a broader set of water treatment and process plant optimisation solutions can be customised.

APRICOT underlies the next generation of IntelliFlux SmartMode2.0 control software targeting autonomous control of water treatment and chemical process plants. Engineered with novel machine learning algorithms, SmartMode2.0 software enables optimisation of multiple process components in addition to membrane filtration. It means that SmartMode2.0 can optimise any process sequence containing multiple treatment technologies, such as media filtration, coagulation, bioprocesses, thermal and reactive systems. With this added capability, IntelliFlux Controls can now provide end-to-end decision automation for water treatment and process plants.

“IntelliFlux SmartMode2.0 sets a new industry benchmark for digital optimisation of water treatment and process plants by harnessing the power of machine learning and artificial intelligence. Our customer trials show that SmartMode2.0 enables optimisation of a plant in half the time with a fraction of the process data compared to conventional unstructured learning algorithms and AI software,” said Subir Bhattacharjee, PhD, CEO of IntelliFlux Controls, Inc.“Continuing on our philosophy of leaving no plant behind toward the path of digitalisation, IntelliFlux SmartMode2.0 is designed to easily integrate into existing plants as a software retrofit.”

IntelliFlux membrane filtration control software is proven to lower operating cost, chemical consumption and energy demand, while maximising process uptime, product water recovery and membrane useful life. The new SmartMode2.0 increases productivity, plant uptime, and lowers energy consumption, providing OPEX savings within days of installation for any type of water treatment plant – new or already in operation.
