Smart Flow Monitoring for Better Process Control

By Joy LePree |

Tighter control, increased safety and versatility result from improved flow-measurement technology Figure 1. The Rotamass Total Insight (TI) Coriolis product provides insight into the process and throughout the lifecycle. The TI concept provides enhanced settings for customized set ups, pre-defined trend views, or multiple configuration sets of fast changeover, data mobility, increased safety and operational flexibility[/caption] Flow monitoring and control are very important in the chemical process industries (CPI) because data gathered by flow-measurement equipment can pinpoint areas where a process can be improved and may help predict where and when a process is likely to fail. While intelligent self-diagnostic flow instruments are essential for repeatable and accurate results, the information obtained via today’s “smarter” flow monitoring and control instrumentation may also be used to achieve tighter control of the process. In addition, flow equipment advances increase safety in the facility, allow more versatility and application in difficult situations. As the CPI face the challenges of having fewer engineers and technicians in their facilities and a large portion of the knowledge and skills are being lost to retirement,…
