  • Flow Conditioning Improves Flow Measurement Accuracy and Reduces Process Plant Costs

    If you're expanding, upgrading or retrofitting your plant, you may face a real estate crisis when it comes to finding a place for all your new equipment. This lack of space can lead to problems with providing the upstream/downstream pipe straight runs required by pumps, compressors, valves, flowmeters, blowers, burners and other devices that must have a stable material process flow in order to operate effectively. Flow conditioners can be an effective, flexible and economical solution when process pipe layouts are an issue affecting instrument performance and accuracy.

  • Continuous Process Improvement (CPI) algorithm

    A lot of papers, articles, and guides have been written over the recent years addressing Continuous Process Improvement (CPI). However very few address methodologies related to the improvement of the process itself, that is, the processing of the metrics used to measure the effectiveness of a process. The methodology proposed in this paper can be applied to any processes.
