Flow is the most commonly measured variable in processes, whether the process is continuous or batch in nature. Many processes are controlled by varying the flow: reflux to a pipe or fractionator column, heating medium to a reboiler, fuel to a fired heater, or the discharge rate from a separator. Accurate measurement and control of flow are also critical from an economic point of view since practically any fluid that flows through a plant has a price tag. Control of flow is generally quite straightforward and easily accomplished; usually, the difficulty lies in selecting the proper measurement device.
