The need for operator and maintainance intensive gas chromatograph (GC) analyzers was eliminated. Customer can now deploy all-optical, unattended sensor system for monitoring the composition of hydrocarbon gases (C1-C5) exiting the well bore which provides crucial information about the drilling formation that would save time and money.
Gas chromatographs and hydrocarbon analyzers can be key in adding value to the ethanol production process and protecting the environment from Volatile Organic Compound (VOC)emissions created during the process.
Comparison of TechnologiesA gas chromatograph (GC) has traditionally been the technology of choice for laboratory analysis of gas samples. GCs have been used for over 50 years in the qualification and quantification of complex mixtures of gases. The techniques and methodology required to run GCs are often a pre-requisite for any laboratory technician. Recent developments in Fourier Transform Infra-Red (FTIR) gas analysis has enabled this technology to start to replace GCs in the lab.
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...
With over 15 years of experience in the measurement of volatile organic compounds (VOC), Environment SA announces the VOC72M, a new generation analyzer for the measurement of BTEX compounds by gas chromatography with photo-ionization detector (PID). The VOC72M can handle up to 40 compounds and eight configurations for analysis. This compact and fully automated analyzer with wide voltage range specifications (90-240V) provides equivalent performance to the laboratory chromatographs and is particularly suited to...
