    Analytical Experts Blog: Choosing the Right Gas Analyzer for Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) Emissions Monitoring

    NO x is probably the most ubiquitous combustion-created air pollutant since it can be generated by any process burning any fossil fuel, and it is tightly regulated by the U.S. EPA and other regulatory bodies around the world. Plants with relevant combustion processes, including most refineries and chemical processing plants, must monitor NO x output continuously any time fuel is burning. How plants choose to do this...

    DeltaV Blog: Unpredictable Mother Nature Drives New Sugar Production Process

    American Crystal Sugar produces a lot of sugar in its six factories. The first step in the process is to wash sugar beets, and this creates a great deal of waste mud that has to be properly disposed. Shifting weather conditions – rainier than average seasons – increased the amount of water in the process, which drove the company to increase use of aged polymer that aids in the flocculation process and helps prevent buildup...

    Flow Blog: Uncertainty in Your Process Unit Mass Balance: What it’s Costing You and How to Improve it

    At the process unit level, the mass balance is particularly important, as the charge and yield measurement streams serve as the basis for operational decision-making. When imbalances occur, process unit engineers can’t optimize their units with confidence. The good news is there are ways to mitigate these measurement uncertainties and improve balances. Strategically placed flow meter technology has been shown to alleviate...
