Goals FA

Navigance is a ready- to- go insolution for formaldehyde plants like yours. Use it to optimize production efficiency and deliver on the objectives that matter the most:

  • Process efficiency
  • Yield
  • Profit
  • Methanol cost
  • Formaldehyde output

Tailor Navigance to your needs.

Navigance suits all formaldehyde plants with various process technologies and configurations, including:

  • Pressurized and non-pressurized plants
  • Single, parallel or series reactor concepts
  • All reactor-cooling medium types and technologies
We’ll configure our Navigance base solution to suit your specific setup, technology mix, process constraints and limitations.


Act with intelligence.

Navigance can find ways to optimize formaldehyde production by analyzing data from sensors at key points across your plant, including:

  • Mass or volume flows for major process streams
    (such as methanol, process/recycled gas, process water and product)
  • Process stream compositions (such as oxygen concentration in the feed stream, or formaldehyde concentration in the product solution)
  • Temperatures (including those of the reactor, process streams and in the catalyst bed, etc.)   

Recommendations_ FA

Refine any time.

Navigance recommends optimized settings for process variables you can actively control – directly or indirectly. These variables are customized to the specifics of your plant and formaldehyde process and can include:

  • Methanol flow
  • Recycled gas flow
  • Oxygen concentration
  • Heat transfer fluid temperature
  • Absorber water flow
