Dérivés Résiniques et Terpeniques (DRT)
DRT Brings Manufacturing Plants into Digital Focus
For almost 90 years, Dérivés Résiniques et Terpeniques (DRT) has manufactured two pine resin extracts: turpentine and rosin. The extracts are utilized by blue chip international brands that produce everything from cosmetics and perfume to adhesives, rubber tires, chewing gum, and food supplements. Before adopting OSIsoft’s data infrastructure, production engineers at DRT relied on manual data entry, control room phone calls and data collection with spreadsheets to determine the effectiveness of their equipment. Today, the PI System is used at four different plants and monitors over 15,000 data streams from DRT’s assets, such as its steam generators and product distillation columns.
