    • Inline Analyzers and their Applications in Chemical Industries.
      • Modern industries face many challenges to remain profitable in the value upgrading of bulk and fine chemicals. Adherence to Industry 4.0 and Sustainable Chemistry principles are more than ever vital in taking on these challenges. A key aspect of these are the use of inline analyzers and their intelligent automation abilities. Inline opportunities in numerous applications will be discussed as well as their best practices. Examples include distillation columns and separation units, scrubbers and strippers, reaction vessels, and auxiliary processes such as waste-water treatment and Co-generation facilities. Through the applications, measurement opportunities for pH, ORP, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, conductivity, and gas analyzers will be considered.
