Welcome to APC-network.com

The site brings value to the users of Advanced Process Control (APC) technology within
the Refining and Petrochemical industry by providing up-to-date information, which is
essential when installing, upgrading or maintaining the technology. We strongly believe
that the application of APC technology is highly profitable and are therefore promoting
its wide use through exchange of ideas and technical discussions among the users and
the suppliers. We also believe that this goal can only be achieved through an independent
virtual community with no affiliations to the software and engineering companies.
