  • The impact of liberalisation on the corporate structure of the natural gas industry in North America: its relevance to possible futures for European natural gas

    Drawing on extensive empirical research over the last decade, this paper analyses the changes in the corporate structure of the North American natural gas industry which have been stimulated by liberalisation, and considers whether they are likely to be imitated in the context of the increasing pace of European liberalisation as the European Natural Gas Directive comes into force. It finds that ...

  • Analytical Devices for the Measurement of Water Vapor and Hydrocarbon Dew-Point in Natural Gas

    Introduction The determination of water vapor (water dew point) is crucial in the processing, custody transfer and transport of natural gas. High levels of water vapor in a natural gas stream can lead to a number of problems which include the formation of hydrates and the contribution to corrosion of plant and equipment. Furthermore, water vapor present in natural gas streams affects the ...

  • NH3 Slip Monitoring in Fluidized-bed Catalytic Cracking Using the LDS 6 Gas Analyzer – Case Study

    Fluidized catalytic cracking (FCC) units are used in refineries to convert low value heavy oils into more valuable lighter compounds. Cracking units are sources of emissions of pollutants (e.g. NOx) and must comply with concentration permits set by local or federal authorithies. Modern technologies are applied to reduce the content of pollutants and to monitor certain gas compounds (here: NH3) in ...

  • Flux force condensation scrubbing

    Flux force condensation scrubbing technology is used to capture fine (submicron) particulate at extremely high efficiency. It is a preferred method when using wet scrubbing to collect and control dioxins from combustion sources. As an added benefit, through the use of condensation, the water vapor plume commonly associated with a wet scrubbing system can be effectively eliminated. The overall ...

    The optimized design of gas cyclones is of particular relevance for the recovery of highly valuable products, such as in the production of active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) through drying systems such as Spray or Fluid Bed Drying (Shoyele et al., 2006). . Traditionally, these have been captured with reverse flow gas cyclones, but fine and low density particles remain difficult to capture ...

  • SITRANS SL in-situ analyzer saves cost for a steel plant replacing existing extractive setup – Case Study

    The customer Steel industry plants all over the world have multiple processes, most of them emitting CO and CO2 in very high concentrations (tens of %). CO is used as a combustible due to its high calorific value. It is stored in a huge tank before it is used by the power plant next door. CO in such high concentration is explosive in presence of a few molecules of oxygen. Therefore, ...
