Flow rate, chemical interactions and reactions, mix and fill rates are a few examples of process system elements that can be directly influenced by the transport and storage of your process chemicals. Process materials flowing through a system are transported by a combination of piping, instrumentation, valves and tanks. Material handling equipment, during transport and storage, is critical to the success of your system.

Equipment for Material Handling Systems
Flow Measurement (Instrumentation)
- Pressure – pilot tubes, piezometers, side-wall tubes
- Temperature – thermocouples, resistive thermal directors (RTD’s)
- Velocity – pitot tubes, anemometers
- Flow Rate – manometers, pressure gauges, venturi meters, flow nozzles, orifice meters, elbow meters, area meters, mass flowmeters, weirs
- Two-phase systems – gas-solid mixtures, gas-liquid mixes, liquid-solid mixes
Pumping (Liquids & Gases)
- Positive displacement pumps
- Kinetic pumps
- Open screw pumps
- Metallic pipe – carbon steel, stainless steel
