Monitor Heaters
Vol. 25 #2, Sept. 1998

Regular inspection of heaters and thermocouples will prevent start up difficulties by insuring that all equipment is effectively heated to the proper temperatures.

Monitoring this same equipment during operations will help troubleshoot processing problems by identifying cold zones.

- Bill Corcoran, Dupont Co.
