Applications guide to mass flow measurement in the chemical industry
Today's chemical plants facc escalating costs and tightening EPA control requirements. Sierra thermal mass flow meters provide the precise, useful data plants need. They can make a significant difference in all the following applications:
Greater Control of Gas Flow to Batch Reactors
The flow rate of gas to a batch reaction process often varies. The reac- tion rate is high at the beginning of the process, requiring higher gas flows and lower gas pressures. As the reaction proceeds, the flow rate drops and the pressure rises correspondingly. To manage the process effectively, operators need a gas flow measurement system that is accurate over a wide range of flow levels.
