Continuous process monitoring in the chemical industry is of most importance to ensure safety and product quality as well as to save energy and to produce environmentally friendly. SICK analysis systems can be applied in all fields of process monitoring – such as production of basic chemicals up to processing of waste and last but not least sewage plants.
Amongst other things, energy, steam, water and operation gases are required for the production of chemicals. Waste has to be handled environmentally friendly. The analyzers of SICK monitors emissions of the power generation process and the internal supply and distribution of operation gases. In waste disposal the measuring devices monitor pollutants released into the air as well as into water.

Most of the basic chemicals, which are used in chemical industry, are produced in-house. Production processes are monitored with continuous analysis technology in order to ensure the product quality and trouble-free production processes. Compliance with environmental regulations is very important and thus also the use of the appropriate measuring devices.

For nearly all production processes of plastics continuous analysis methods are used for optimization of the production, for fault detection and to ensure compliance with environmental regulations. Examples for the production of plastics where SICK analyzers are successfully applied:

Fertilizers are still major products of the chemical industry worldwide. Basically fertilizers consist of nitrates and phosphates. Nitrates are made of nitric acid and ammonia. Phosphates are produced by decomposition of phosphate minerals with sulfuric acid. The basic products for the production of fertilizers are:
