Process Parameters that Commonly Measured in Industry

Introduction

Measurement of different process parameters is an essential part of industrial automation. In this post, I will give you some knowledge about the Top major Process Parameters that are Commonly Measured in Industry.

Some of the process parameters are most commonly measured and controlled in industry.

Process parameters measured in the industry are divided into two parts first is Major parameters and the Other is Minor parameters.

Major parameters are a list of parameters that are used essential for getting the final output and Minor parameters are used for quality improvement for output products.

Top Major Process Parameters (MPP) Measured in the industry: –

  • Pressure Measurement
  • Temperature Measurement
  • Level Measurement
  • Flow Measurement
  • Ph Measurement

Top Minor Process Parameters (MiPP) Measured in industry

  • Conductivity Measurement
  • Acceleration Measurement
  • Weight Measurement
  • Gas Measurement

1. Pressure Measurement

Pressure is a very important parameter in industry. Measurement of pressure is a very important part of process control.

Different types of pressure measurement techniques are used according to application.
