Control Strategies Based On Realtime Particle Size Analysis

By Jeff DeNigris Malvern Instruments Alberto Ferrari Ferrari Granulati |

The pursuit of manufacturing excellence is a strong theme across all of the chemical process industries (CPI). Improving operations by eliminating variability and waste, a cornerstone of the six sigma approach, is essential for competitive performance in the global marketplace. In addition, of course, health, safety and the environment (HSE) remains the subject of intense scrutiny and concern. Within this climate, automation of both analysis and control, can be highly advantageous. Particle size analysis is a measurement technique that has already successfully completed the transition from laboratory to line and become an established part of the automation toolkit. Reliable, online particle-size analysis systems are now commercially proven across a number of sectors, on both wet and dry process streams, with all aspects of project implementation well-scoped and understood. With this maturation has come greater accessibility to sectors that previously faced technical or financial barriers to adoption. Requirements are different in each and every case, from a simple single PID (proportional integral derivative) control loop to multivariate statistical control or the rigors of operation within a highly regulated environment. Nevertheless,…
