Abstract:AkzoNobel is a paints and coatings company and major producer of specialty chemicals. Headquartered in Amsterdam, the company has activities in more than 80 countries and employs approximately 45,000 people. This bachelor report is written in collaboration with AkzoNobel Hengelo. AkzoNobel Hengelo is one of the production locations of AkzoNobel where salt products are produced. These salt products are, for example, demanded by the meat industry. The meat industry demands a specific salt product: nitrite salt. This salt ensures that the meat turns red and that the meat will have a longer shelf life. The nitrite in the salt is added in different concentrations. These nitrite concentrations have to be measured in order to ensure that these concentrations satisfy the specific customer specifications. Otherwise, the customer claims the product. This process of nitrite measurement needs to be improved at AkzoNobel Hengelo at different production lines. To be specifically, this process of nitrite measurement needs to be in-line. With in-line is meant that the analyzer is implemented inside the process and the process is analyzed continuous.
