Advanced pH Measurement and Control, 3rd Edition by Gregory K. McMillan

By Gregory K. McMillan

This best-selling e-book is now elevated and up-to-date, supplying a transparent, concise, and finished view of ways to pick, set up, and hold electrodes, keep an eye on valves, and keep an eye on ideas for pH purposes serious for product and water caliber within the method undefined. The booklet covers each point of process layout together with the blending and reagent piping requisites which are very important for a winning program. the basic options are summarized as key insights and the easiest practices are offered as principles of thumb in the course of the ebook. The rising strength of dynamic on-line pH estimators is explored to make present pH measurements swifter and extra trustworthy. the most recent advancements in complex batch keep an eye on, adaptive keep watch over, linear reagent call for keep watch over, and version predictive keep watch over are awarded to minimize reagent intake and variability. A Microsoft Excel workbook dossier is incorporated that shall we clients generate titration curves and research pH keep an eye on approach functionality. A digital plant is additionally provided to prototype and examine pH regulate structures. The dynamic procedure versions and regulate method modules for the digital plant require using DeltaV SimulatePro and HYSYS Plant licenses.

Deterioration in the glass surface and reference potential make th e measurement error larger so there is a double hit in terms of the accuracy of the feed forward signa l. pH feedforward works best when you are going from a steep part to a flat part of the titration curve. New adaptive control algorithms can automatically identi fy the feedforwa rd ga in and dynamics from feed set point cha nges. Flow feedforward Is generally helpful but can waste reagent by an over correction that is more likely when a set point is on the steep portion at the titration curve.

Chemists and specialists will provide data in concentration units that should be converted to influent flow conditions and reagent flow requirements. Molar units are p redomi nately used by chemists making laboratory measurements beca use the calcu lation is based on a beaker volu me. Molar concentration is the number of gram-moles per liter of solu tion. The number of moles is calculated by takin g the weight of the pure acid or base and dividing it by its molecular weigh t exp ressed in the same weight units.

7. It is im portant to reali ze that dissociation consta n ts vary with temperature and hence the pH of the solution varies with temperature. A common misconcep tion is that the temperature co m pensator in a pH measurement circu it co rrects for this variation .
