Contact-based temperature sensors, such as thermocouples and resistance temperature detectors (RTDs), have demonstrated accurate and cost-effective operation throughout the chemical process industries (CPI). However, there are many applications and settings where they are simply not practical. In those cases, engineers can turn to a host of non-contact temperature measurement devices, many of which are...

Temperature is a critical measurement in the chemical process industries (CPI). If a measurement is not accurate or reliable, or the sensor is incorrectly chosen, it can cost a company thousands of dollars in wasted steam, extra feedstock or rejected product. Sometimes even a few degrees of error in a temperature measurement can be very expensive. Therefore, it pays to ensure that temperature measurements...

Accurate temperature measurement is not difficult. It does, however, require you to think about accuracy from specification and selection, all the way up to installation and operation of your temperature-measurement sensor. There are opportunities to improve accuracy during each of these phases, as well as opportunities to accidentally undermine all of your previous improvement efforts. Determining the...

The batch reactor is the workhorse of the fine chemical and pharmaceutical industries. Within it, many different unit operations are performed such as chemical reactions, bioreactions, crystallization, distillation and dissolution. Despite their significance to the industry, batch reactors have been controlled by the same underlying method for the past 50 years. This article discusses a relatively...

Steam traps are an integral part of steam systems in the chemical process industries (CPI). Steam is commonly used to add energy into a process through its latent heat (steam heat), while the resultant sensible heat (hot condensate) drains through steam traps. The operation of these traps influences the entire steam system’s function and reliability. Steam trap operation has a bearing on the...
