Fluid Flow Control System in the Process Industry Conference


Modern fluid flow control techniques in fluid systems commonly utilized in the process and chemical industry are integral to managing operations such as controlling the flow rate, measuring pressure and temperature, and facilitating other quantities at upstream and downstream locations. They also encompass mechanisms to pass maximum flow rates in case of emergencies.

Fluid movers like pumps and compressors, available in various designs, are equipped with their own fluid flow control devices that regulate flow rates, pressures, and, in some instances, motor loads featuring technologies such as variable speed motors or variable speed couplings. Control valves are pivotal in the fluid flow control process. They serve many functions, including pressure reduction, control of delivery flow rates, back pressure control, pressure relief, and more.

Fluid flow measurement is the cornerstone of operation and control regarding fluid transport in piping systems and pipelines. Fluid flow measurements and control accuracy are critical in oil and gas process solutions, ensuring reliability and efficiency. As such, flow control data are meticulously monitored and computerized, while line flow balances detect discrepancies periodically, ranging from hourly to weekly intervals.

Flow measurements utilize specific flow meters, such as differential pressure, volumetric, or mass flow meters.
