Go With the Flow
Added capabilities of modern flowmeters help chemical processors increase efficiency and uptime, and reduce costs
According to experts in flow measurement, any chemical processors seeking to optimize its processes in an effort to offset the rising prices of natural gas, electricity and raw materials may want to look at improving measurement and control via the added capabilities of modern flow technologies. Increasing productivity and process optimization very often involves system automation, says Jens Goebel from Siemens Industry Automation Division of Siemens Corp. (New York, N.Y.). "Increased use of flowmeters can contribute significantly in reaching that goal, as flowmeters are of paramount importance when it comes to process control and monitoring," he says. "More specifically, flowmeters ensure improved accuracy, which contributes to an enhanced quality, minimized waste and costs for disposal. The great reliability of the measurements also results in improved billing ability."...
