Mass Balance, Yield, and Loss

Identify Sources of Waste and Improve Your Production Yield

Every plant dealing with liquids should be incorporating the concept of mass balance into their operations to reveal whether it is capturing all its valuable solids. Instead of manually documenting data and tracking products through products, wasting costly hour and product, Orbis’ Mass Balance conducts this analysis for you.


Loss Quantification

Assign value to losses so that the ROI of any improvements can be easily quantified

Output Monitoring

Track activities all the way down to the component level and through output to identify the ideal inputs, recipe, or overall process

Improved Yield

Identify current output benchmarks to monitor for problems and improvements

Paperless Factory

Reduce Data Errors, Communication Delays, and More With Digital Versions of Your Documentation

Digital operator logos are the first step towards digitization of the production process. They replace paper-based logs with more accurate and legible on-line data entry. Logs can be created for all data entry processes in the plant and can be a combination of both manual and automated data capture.
