Continuous & Batch Processing

Continuous Processing operations require non-stop consumption of raw materials and energy to produce a product, such as oil or glass. Batch (or discontinuous) Processing is similarly automated, but products come out in batches. Read about developments in Process Automation and Control, Instruments & Sensors, and other aspects of these operations.
