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.
