Moisture Monitoring for Liquid Benzene Feed Stock - Monitoring and Testing

Moisture needs to be measured in feed stock gases in the manufacture of polymers . For example, pre-dried benzene is fed in to a reactor containing hydrochloric acid – if the dryers are not operating properly moisture in the benzene promotes acid corrosion of the reactor and process lines. Several processes require water concentrations of specific values to optimise efficiency and yield; in such cases more sophisticated instruments are required.
