Improving Your Refinery and Process Unit Mass Balances
Closing plant or unit mass balances can be a challenge due to measurement errors. Without accurate measurement real losses cannot be identified and optimization models become unreliable. Accurate measurements are needed to improve balances. Many refiners rely on volumetric and lab density measurements for their balances even though both measurements are impacted by changing process conditions. Coriolis meters can significantly improve balances by measuring direct mass and online density.
