Selecting Mass Flow Controllers for Rugged and Hazardous Environments

Understanding the level of protection needed for mass flow controllers is critical to selecting devices that are both reliable and safe.

Chemical plants and petrochemical refineries have some of the most hazardous operating conditions of any industry. As a result, stringent safety procedures and protocols have been established to protect both people and production systems from explosions that can happen from running process equipment. This equipment includes mass flow controllers (MFCs).

Raise Quality

Pressure measurement plays a central role in chlorine production, which is a safety-critical process. This is due to the fact that chlorine is highly reactive and can therefore easily trigger explosions in combination with organic substances. So it is important to precisely monitor all production steps in order to avoid damage to people and the environment. This is why diaphragm seal systems make all the difference when it comes to measuring the process pressure. These welded units of diaphragm seal and measuring instrument provide both the durability and the accuracy required.
