Function Monitors stream properties and expands the information to a suite of specifications and properties.
Method Reference cp files are prepared on the process stream to be monitored. The reference streams represent a range of process conditions (severities) and, if necessary, a range of feed sources. The on-line properties to be monitored are selected to:
The monitors are installed and property values are fed to a cp file updater program that maintains a current cp file on the process stream. The updated cp file is used as input for any other Z-BaSICTM routine.
Use Monitor is used to obtain on-line composition and property information for any process stream. Monitor maintains a current cp file on the process stream and inputs data to Control for controlling variables to yield desired product specifications. It may be used with applications such as Composition, Properties, Assay, Blend, and Troubleshoot to obtain a host of information on the stream.
Development Status The algorithms for Monitor have been completed and the system for correlations has been tested. A unit calibration task requires about 2 - 3 months.
