Temperature is among the most critical measurements in the chemical process industries (CPI) for operating safe and efficient processes. Because even a small error in temperature can lead to expensive consequences, accurate and reliable monitoring of temperature is required. Thermowells The most accurate temperature measurements occur when the sensor is in direct contact with the process fluid being...

Whether for pumping, mixing, compression or ventilation, motors are used everywhere in the chemical process industries (CPI). Unfortunately, they are notoriously energy intensive, accounting for about 65% of the electrical consumption of a chemical production site. However, with the world, especially the U.S. and Europe, turning a watchful eye on energy consumption, motor and drive manufacturers are...

Determining the proper preliminary size for centrifugal pumps during the initial stages of any pump-specification exercise requires numerous calculations and assumptions. This article reviews the steps needed to size centrifugal pumps during the early stages of a project, to support initial cost-estimation efforts. Such early pump-sizing efforts are important steps toward final pump selection and detailed...

Pressure-relief valves are widely and effectively used in situations where the pressure in a process vessel rises to above the vessel’s design-pressure rating. Proper relief-valve sizing is critical to plant and process safety to permit fluids sufficient flow area to exit the vessel. Sizing relief valves requires several equations for different flows (liquid flow, vapor flow and two-phase flow), as...
