Chemical plants are demanding as they cater to a wide range of organic and inorganic material (liquid or gas) some of which are flammable, toxic, and highly corrosive. Also during chemical processing, liquid such as acids, caustics, and highly viscous organic substances or highly pressurized gas lines place enormous material and mechanical stress upon flow measurement and process analytics solutions in chemical plants.

Under these challenging conditions, the clamp-on ultrasonic flow metering and concentration measurement solution become the most relevant options as these meters are non-intrusive and maintenance-free and offer excellent accuracy and reliability. The non-intrusive design means the transducers are mounted on the outside of the pipe wall and by this way the system does not suffer from wear and tear or clogging and creates no risk for leaks or pressure drops inside the pipe.

Clamp-on ultrasonic technology is also suitable for the purposes of process analytics, such as for non-invasive concentration measurement. These permanently installed and portable flowmeters for explosive and hazardous liquids have already been proven in many demanding applications with major chemical manufacturers worldwide.

These solutions meet the highest requirements of industrial production, namely the highest level of safety for people and the environment on the one hand and the highest level of plant availability on the other.

In this webinar, experts from Flexim and the chemical industry will share latest insights on key trends and technologies in flow measurement and process analytics solutions.
