In monitoring the solvent concentration in industrial processes, the accuracy of the analyzer directly affects the safety and economy of the process.
There are two types of errors to look out for:
- Errors which tend to exaggerate the actual solvent concentration ("safe-side" errors) cause a reduction in economy through the possibility of false alarms, or slowing of process speed from the exaggerated reading.
- Errors which tend to underestimate the actual solvent concentration ("unsafe errors") can significantly reduce the margin of safety, resulting in a fire or explosion.
