The article discusses the survey on the needs and applications for instrumentation equipment of the processing plant in the U.S. It showed that harsh environment wherein they are used and the product's ability to align performance are essential factors required in the facility. It also revealed that operating environment of the processing plant is rough in terms of demand on any given product, but there is a room for variation from the process and material.
