The proper operation of any process requires monitoring of various process parameters including temperature, pressure, flow, concentration, product quality, etc. Many of these parameters can be monitored on-line using instrumentation. Some parameters can not be monitored on-line and require sampling and laboratory analysis to determine if the process is operating properly.
The proper operation of an acid plant requires many different analytical procedures. Some tests are done once a day, while others are on a less frequent basis (i.e. weekly, monthly) or only when problems occur in the plant operation.
