The Oil & Gas segment is the biggest market for gas detection and analysis equipment. It is common to describe this industry based on the product flow, from “Upstream” exploration and extraction location toward a “Downstream” flow, which end up at the end user home or business. Throughout the Oil and Gas industry, leaks are a real concern.
Recent decades brought a rapid growth in the global demand for energy. This trend is accurate for both developed as well as developing countries. Electrical power is a key source of energy for the vast majority of the world population. Although the usage of renewable energy is on the rise, the majority of electric power production worldwide is still based on conventional methods utilizing coal, oil and gas as its fuel to power the stations.
In a complex petrochemical facility there may be many thousands of potential leaks paths. Some may be leaking but most will not. Using an infrared Gas Detection camera allows the user to examine many potential leaks sources in a short time and from a distance. The EPA acknowledged gas imaging cameras, such as Opgal’s EyeCGas®, as an approved Leak Detection and Repair (LDAR) Method 21 alternate work practice (AWP).
The Cleanroom is a combined laboratory chemical, mechanical and / or electronic whose main characteristic is the presence of very pure air, that is a very low content of fine dust in suspension. In the process of semiconductor production, the airborne particles (micro-powder) go to irreparably damage the micro-photoetched that form the chip, creating an electronic circuit defective, and then discarded. This process has forced the improvement of industrial production environments, removing particles from the air,...
Whether you are a researcher or an operator working with wastewater treatment processes, it is crucial to have access to highly accurate and precise data to get insight into the wastewater treatment processes.
CIC Photonics first applied its IRGAS technology to semi-gases when a major semiconductor equipment manufacturer, Applied Materials, requested a demo of its capability to monitor gas quality for epitaxial reactor applications; that was in year 2000. The IRGAS System met all of the technical requirements, which included ppb sensitivity for moisture as an impurity, gas cell chemical resistance to both acid and basic semi-gases, and fast concentration tracking time response.
MOCON’s Baseline® Series 9100 Gas Chromatograph equipped with a photoionization detector (PID) provides a quick, cost effective quantitative analysis of IPA and acetone in air at levels in the ppb and sub-ppb range with no preconcentration necessary.
Isopropanol and acetone are detected and accurately quantified to sub-ppb levels in under 3 minutes with ethanol producing no interference. The instrument is sensitive to below 5 ppb for both IPA and acetone employing the MOCON Baseline® standard PID or 0.1 ppb...
Within the field of gas analysis much time is spent looking at the accuracy and uncertainty in the detection technique. However, without appropriate sample handling, what you are measuring could potentially bear little or no relation to your original sample.
