process analyzers by industry

Gas & Liquid Applications

processing pipeline distribution process analyzers

Processing, pipeline, distribution

Online analyzers are used throughout the natural gas value chain. The well site is monitored to understand the treatment requirements in the processing plant. During processing, H2S must be reduced to low ppm levels before LNG pre-liquefaction or the sales pipeline. During long stretches of pipeline, natural gas and natural gas liquids (NGL) must be monitored to ensure contractual compliance. Finally, at the custody transfer and distribution stage, natural gas must be corrected for volume.

Each application requires the right technology in order to quickly identify unexpected sour events in order to avoid a pipeline network “lock-out.” Below you will find a complete set of solutions to provide operators with measurement certainty.

process analyzers by industry - chemical and petrochemical process analyzers

Chemical & petrochemical production

The chemical and petrochemical industry rely on process analyzers to help them optimize plant operations. Various physical and chemical properties must be continuously monitored in order to improve product quality and quickly identify process upsets. If the final products do not meet the customer’s requirements, profits are negatively impacted.

refining and oil production process analyzers

Refining & oil production

Online analyzers are used during oil production all the way through the refining process. During oil production, crude oil must be removed from water. During the refining process, after distillation, each hydrocarbon fraction goes through a series of processing stages that require specific operating conditions. The final products must meet certain specifications in order to maintain contractual compliance.

power and biogas process analyzers

Power & biogas

Power plants use excessive amounts of water that must be treated in order to maximize heat transfer efficiency. Nuclear power plants monitor boric acid to optimize neutron flux control. The flue gas must be effectively scrubbed so that it can be recycled back into the plant. Lubricating oils must meet strict quality specifications to optimize turbine performance. Throughout the process, heat-exchange fluid leaks must be monitored to avoid equipment damage.

Landfill biogas contains impurities (H2S) that must be removed before the sales gas pipeline. Processing high H2S gas increases the risk of equipment corrosion damage and endangering operators. If H2S is not efficiently scrubbed or if Btu does not meet contractual obligations, biogas must be flared which negatively impacts profits.

water and wastewater process analyzers

Water & wastewater

Wastewater treatment plants rely on process analyzers to ensure their effluent meets environmental compliance regulations. To achieve this, various processes are used to treat wastewater that must be monitored. Oil must be separated from the wastewater. Nitrification and denitrification requires specific operating conditions to ensure ammonia is converted to nitrite. For industrial wastewater, heavy metals must also be removed.

Water treatment facilities monitor their source water to understand the treatment requirements further downstream. During winter, chloride concentrations increase due to rock salt used for de-icing roads. Coagulation and flocculation operations, along with oxidation and filtration remove contaminants from the water. Distribution must meet specific requirements in order for the water to be safe for human consumption.

materials process analyzers

Materials

The materials sector relies on process analyzers to help them optimize plant operations. Various physical and chemical properties must be continuously monitored in order to improve product quality and quickly identify process upsets. If the final products do not meet the customer’s requirements, profits are negatively impacted.

food and beverage process analyzers

Food & beverage

The food & beverage industry relies on process analyzers to help them optimize product quality. Various physical and chemical properties must be continuously monitored in order to achieve consistency in quality, assure health and safety compliance, and maximize yields. If the final products do not meet the customer’s requirements, profits are negatively impacted. Large quantities of water must be treated in order to meet the raw material specifications. Achieving consistency,
