  • Two Detector Solution to Analyzing Sulfur

    Sulfur compounds are reactive, corrosive to pipes, and destructive to catalysts in petroleum refineries. Sulfur emission are strictly regulated globally. When released into the atmosphere sulfur dioxide converts to sulfuric acid resulting in adverse effects on human health and the environment. Sulfur detection is found useful in many other industries; therefore, detection of sulfur compounds in ...

  • Efficiency of a standard gas-turbine power generation cycle running on different fuels

    This paper presents a study of second-law efficiency in a standard Brayton combined cycle power generation, using several paraffinic fuels ranging from methane to heptane. The main objective of the study was to identify a trend with the number of carbon atoms in the compound. In this way, a qualitative criterion can be built to evaluate the properties of poor-quality gas turbine fuels containing ...

  • The real benefits of standardizing on a single LIMS in the gas and petroleum industry - Case Study

    Automation of laboratory data capture and analysis is claimed to be the major challenge facing the petrochemical industry. Indeed, elimination of manual processes leads to considerable product quality improvements while also aiding compliance with strict environmental regidations. As a result, companies that wish to remain ahead of the competition are standardizing on Laboratory Information ...

  • Primary Standard Gas Flow Calibration—The Only Guarantee of Accuracy

    At Sierra, we have a saying: “An instrument’s accuracy is only as good as its calibration.” The accuracy of your mass flow controller (MFC) is essential in assuring the efficiency, performance, and quality of your flow meter. In many cases, if your instrumentation is not calibrated, then a decline in performance is possible due to ...
