Process Pump Control
Understanding how pumps are controlled is important for overall process control and to minimize risks during the scaleup of new processes
John Hall, Viking Pump Inc.
When automating fluid handling processes, it is critical to ensure that you are using the best type of pump for the process, and to understand how to control the type of pump you are using. The two major classes of process pumps — centrifugal and rotary positive displacement — require completely different control techniques. It is important to understand each pump type’s limitations, and when developing new processes, it is particularly important to know which types are the most controllable to minimize scaleup risks from laboratory to pilot, and ultimately, to commercial scale....
