The natural gas is a significant source of ingres s of mercury in the environment. The typical mercury concentration in natural gas may vary from 0.01 to 200 μ g/m3 . Mercury, being present in hydrocarbon gas, initiates corrosion of pipelines and catalyst poiso ning during gas transportation and processing, and these effects have serious implications for the gas-processing industry.

Fuel Gas Streams are frequently contaminated with liquid aerosols. The liquid exists as a stable and persistent “smoke” in the gas stream. The liquid contaminant can enter the gas stream through any one of a variety of events including – phase separation and condensation, compressor lube-oils from compression, chemical addition to pipelines (including corrosion inhibitors), and entrainment from overheads of contact towers.

Natural gas is a hydrocarbon gas mixture consisting primarily of methane(CH4) , but commonly includes varying amounts of other higher alkanes and usually small amounts of impurities like water vapor (H2O), hydrogen sulfide(H2S), carbon dioxide(CO2), and nitrogen (N2 ) and others. Natural gas must be processed from the impurities before can be used as a fuel. Five stages are often required to convert raw natural gas into fuel gas pipelined to the end user markets: extraction and gathering, gas purification,...
On-the-spot measurement of total microorganisms! Microbial growth can be a significant nuisance in the upstream oil and gas sector. Well drilling, completion and stimulation activities can introduce microbes into a producing formation. Microbes found in the near well bore of producing wells can impede inflow, corrode tubulars and pumps and sour the formation. At the surface, production problems associated with microbial infection include corrosion and fouling of wellheads, pipelines, heater treaters, separators...
Treating the water being injected for disposal is not always considered by operators. This is likely costing you money in the long run. Removing iron, heavy metals, and treating out ammonia is a benefit to treating with MIOX’s mixed oxidant solution. While these are benefits of the technology, the most important is the elimination of bacteria which can cause Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S), corrosion pitting, poor injectivity and other problems, resulting in great well workover frequency. Treating injection wells...
Oil and Gas industry includes exploration, extraction, refining, transporting, and marketing petroleum products. The largest volume products of the oil and gas industry are fuel oil and gasoline. The industry is usually divided into three major components: upstream, midstream and downstream. Xinhai valves meet oil & gas industry upstream, midstream, downstream demands of reliability, corrosion resistance, temperature, pressure, vibration, etc.
Marine conditions pose a number of challenges and issues. Size, weight, rough sea conditions, corrosion, high temperatures, cargo needing protection, just to name a few.Oxymat’s Marine, Oil & Gas division produces nitrogen PSA generator systems to the marine industry with the necessary experience and know-how to address these issues. Compared to a traditional membrane based system, PSA systems significantly decrease redundancy and can cut energy consumption with up to 30%. In addition, a PSA system can...
Deposits and corrosion as well as undesired emulsion, foam and toxic gases impact the operation and the occupational safety in refineries. Kurita provides tailored treatment concepts to increase the operational and the occupational safety. Our product lines and technologies are based on decades of experience in process treatment and they contribute to reduce your total operating costs.
The rubber lining services are performed on site or in the workshop and are designed respecting the specific given conditions of each project. By lining with rubber, we protect your equipments and industrial installations especially against chemical corrosion, but also on mechanical stress, extending very much their lifetime.
Within the industrial sector there are specific installations which should pay maximum attention to the protection of their control rooms against corrosion. This is because their activities generate highly corrosive gasses which need to be eliminated in case they affect the functioning of critical electrical equipment. This corrosion compromises the efficiency and safety and can affect the production process itself.
Now there’s a simple solution for improving your refinery’s cooling process efficiency. Innovas Technologies offers our innovative Helios Tube Cleaning System technology that prevents fouling your process heat exchangers naturally and sustainably — without costly process shutdowns or chemical treatments. Whether it’s a process heat exchanger, SAGD produced water heat exchanger, extraction water preheater, vacuum condenser, or overheads condenser, our ball tube cleaning system technology...
PROJECT OVERVIEW: The re-lining of 12 seawater supply wells to a depth of 45 metres with Boode Select PVC screen and casing. The supply wells support an offshore oil drilling and production platform and were re-lined following the failure of existing stainless steel screen and casing due to sand ingress and corrosion.
The purpose of determining water (moisture) content in liquid EDC (ethylene dichloride) is to decrease risk of corrosion and damage to the cracking furnace. The on-line analyzer system uses a selective H2O measurement by means of multi-wavelength infrared.
From bulk gas delivery to cleaning to purging operations, Sierra`s mass flow meters and controllers offer the simplicity and robustness demanded in these applications. Our ability to handle corrosive gases, high flow rates and multiple gases with the same unit makes Sierra`s mass flow meters and controllers a tool-makers choice.
The TunnelTech 200 series are primarily gas monitors with optional Visibility capability. Most use Infra-red absorption technology to monitor gaseous pollutants and those with a visibility channel use optical attenuation for that application. All TunnelTech 200 analysers except the TunnelTech 205 use the same rugged corrosion resistant enclosures and have an optional Data Display unit. As there is only one moving part so reliability levels are very high and maintenance levels very low.
ProMark is the expert in neutralizing corrosive gases that eat away at electronic and electrical infrastructure in industrial environments. We destroy the corrosive gases and capture harmful particulates. There is a range of corrosive gases, both acidic and caustic. One other common gas is chlorine. Chlorine requires a chemistry very different chemistry than what is needed for acid and caustic gases.
The process control of a CO2 capture plant needs good and reliable detection of gas phase NH3 and CO2. Measuring NH3 is a challenge due to the corrosive environment and high concentrations of NH3. Several places in the process needs to be monitored and to transport the sample is difficult. A large dynamic range is needed as the NH3 concentration can vary between 15% volume and a few mg/m3.
The process control of a sulphuric acid plant needs good and reliable detection of gas phase sulphur dioxide (SO2). To measure SO2 is a challenge due to the corrosive environment and high concentration of SO2. Several places in the process needs to be monitored and to transport the sample gas is difficult. A large dynamic range is needed as the SO2 concentration can vary between 15% volume and a few mg/m3. Most systems installed need a lot of maintenance, sometimes as often as every day.
