Example text

While this would eliminate most of the variability at the temperature controller, there may be other circumstances, such as heat exchanger tube scaling, that would necessitate a long-term shift in the required ratio. This can be implemented by letting the feedback temperature controller set the required ratio as shown in Figure 3-14. Ratio control, noted earlier as an example of feedforward-feedback control, corrects for the steadystate effects on the controlled variable. Suppose that there is also a difference in dynamic effects of the hot oil and process streams on the outlet temperature.

You also should have identified other components/materials that could be present under normal and abnormal conditions. These other components/materials are used in the method selection process to ensure they will not interfere with the selected method/technology. You are now identifying possible technology candidates and trying to select the best for your total situation. If you have a current lab analytical method for this or a similar sample, you should not ignore it, but more often than not, it is not selected as the best technology for the process analysis.

Complex analyzers like many GC systems and spectroscopy systems have typically demonstrated better performance when installed in environmentally stable areas. Figure 2-3 depicts one of these areas with three process GCs. The top section of the unit includes a microprocessor and the complex electronics required to control the analyzer functions and operation, communicate with the outside world, and sometimes to control a variety of sample system features. The middle section is the utility gas control section and controls the required flows of several application essential gases.
