Measuring instruments are the first step into automation’s world, without them we would not have access to the information about the process who is being controlled. This first section is dedicated mainly to primary measurement instruments (industrial instrumentation) such as temperature, pressure, flow and level.

Additionally you will find information on other types of measurement. These instruments represent the 85% of the continuous measurements in a modern process plant. Therefore they have a prominent position within this website.

Control Valves

Once you understand the control loop sudenly you will discover de need of a final control element.

Control valves are the mos important, but sometimes neglected, part of a control loop. Here you will find information about ON/OFF Valves, Relief Valves, Control Valves, Positioners and Actuators.

The application of analyzers involves a great deal more than the selection of the most appropiate analysis technique.

The section inside covers several types of this techniques and also some notes about sampling systems. It covers pH, Moisture, ORP and electrochemical analysers and also Gas Analysers…

Control Systems and Instrumented Safety Systems

Control Systems and Safety Instrumented Systems

Nothing can be controlled without an adequate control system (SCADA or DCS) to process all plant signals and act on the process.

The section covers content from the DCS to SCADAS, through industrial communication protocols and Industrial Safety Systems.
The section also includes some documents about Cybersecurity.

Control Theory

The structure of chemical processes has become increasingly complex, due to better management of energy and raw materials. So, the desgin of control systems now constitutes the point of engineering interest.
