Lecture Notes 9

Lecture 9 - Process Equipment and Valve Design

Today's Lecture was a demonstration of process devices for:

  • Flow Measurements
  • Pressure Transducers
  • Temperature Sensors
  • Control Valves

Many of these devices are used in the Unit Operations Lab to measure and control the processes. Understanding the limitations and accuracy of these measurement devices is important in the design of a control application. The class notes give more detail on the control valves and selecting the correct characteristics for a particular service.
