    Process Analytical Technologies for Energy Savings in Industrial Processes

    Debra Hall, Control Instruments Corp.

    Solvent vapor monitoring systems greatly reduce the cost of operating industrial ovens/dryers & oxidizers while at the same time they protect workers and equipment from explosions. This presentation will discuss the various monitoring technologies available for both process and area monitoring applications, and how with the proper selection you can lower energy consumption, reduce fuel costs and improve production rates in manufacturing processes while keeping within the latest safety standards.
