How do I calculate the mass with concentration [%] and the flow [l / s]? I would like to do in AF as an analysis, which will perform at 8h. I'm trying, and I do not quit.

Hi Janusz,

Can you provide some more information as to what you are trying to do?

Based on your equations, it looks like you trying to find the total weight for the last 8 hours based on the concentration and the flowrate? Is that correct?

Are you trying to find the running 8-hour average mass flowrate?

Thanks for clarifying for me

Hi,

I think that result is bad. In the ship the real value is about 150 tons. Per day line production value is ~500 tons. I don't know what I want to find total mass for 8 hours. I set period per shift. Maybe must be tagavg from flowrate multipli tagavg concentration with factors: 3.6 => from l/s to t/h and divaide avg concentration by 100. It's correct?

Hi Janusz,

Thanks for the clarification. I see what you are trying to do. You are trying to determine amount of material that has flown through the process for the shift.

The instantaneous (real-time) flow rate for the individual material is represented as Concentration*Total Flow Rate. Thus, we are trying to do:

Thus, our analysis should look like this:

I assumed that concentration is between 0-100 and not 0-1 which means I need to divide by 100. The conversion from lbs/s to tons/h is 1.8 which was also used in the equation.

Since we would this analysis to run at the end of the shift, you can set the analysis to run every 8 hours with a x hour offset to represent the start/end time of a shift. In my example (below): my shifts are 6AM-2PM, 2PM-10PM, 10PM-6AM.

The end result would be the total mass flow for your component for the shift in tons.

I've attached a template for your use.

Please give this a try. Let me know if this works for you.
