This paper discusses the operation of a chemical reactor and particularly the need for highly reliable instrumentation and control for critical processes. It describes the use of fault tolerance for the computer control to provide a level of reliability previously unachievable with standard computer control systems. The provision of highly reliable… CONTINUE READING
