Improve pH Control

Chemical Processing

The measurement of pH provides a resolution and rangeability in indicating process composition that is orders of magnitude better than any other analysis. With this exceptional capability comes an extraordinary sensitivity to the control strategy, controller, measurement, mechanical equipment, piping, and valve design and installation. A slight deficiency in any of these aspects that normally would be of no consequence to other control systems can cause a pH system to fail miserably.
Process plant managers face many challenges, such as worker safety, environmental stewardship, process uptime, and conservation of plant resources. Life-cycle dynamic simulation, the virtual plant, is a proven technology to help plant operations address challenges.
