  • Moisture Audits & Analyser Performance Assessments at Woodside, Karratha - Case Study

    Woodside had been experiencing intermittent blockages in 4/5 S1406 LNG trains since September 2008 and had been unable to pinpoint the source of the problems. Repeated hydrate formations were leading to reduced productivity and the existing process monitoring instrumentation had failed to confirm moisture breakthrough on the beds. The site's existing Panametrics portable moisture analysers had ...

  • MCM’s heated Silicon Sensor Moisture Analyser against Aluminium Oxide and Oscillating Crystal Moisture Analysers, during Molecular Sieve Test Runs at St Fergus, Scotland

    Abstract Methods for dehydrating natural gas using molecular sieves (mol sieve) are well established. Many strategies have been developed with the intention of extending mol sieve lifetime and preventing unplanned shut-downs of dehydration units. The amount of adsorbent required in such dehydration processes is determined by the water content in the feed, the end-of-run (EOR) water ...

  • Analysing four of the most contaminated foodstuffs

    Food adulteration has been around since the Victorian times when cheese was often coloured with lead salts, beer and milk were watered down and flour was bulked out with chalk dust or ground bones [1]. Governments apply stringent legislation and quality standards to food products but the practice of adulteration, driven by greed and profit, is still seen. ...

  • The importance of maintaining your fixed gas analyser

    Plant technicians rigorously check for contaminates within the digester and ensure that the performance is optimised but maintaining the gas analyser monitoring the whole process is often overlooked.  Many analysers are used in harsh and potentially explosive environments and so it is of paramount importance that the operation runs smoothly and safely. With simple maintenance of your ...

  • Emissions analyser helps manage power station

    A multiparameter emissions monitor at Thetford power station is being used to demonstrate to the Environment Agency that the plant is performing within the conditions of its environmental permit. However, the data from the analyser, which was supplied by Milton Keynes based Quantitech, also performs a vitally important role in helping to manage the plant. “Individual gas readings are ...

  • In-situ moisture content measurement of landfill cover using Time Domain Reflectometry

    The amount of methane that vent from landfills is dependent on the physical, chemical and biological components of the soil cover; moisture content and temperature of the soil being the major controlling factors. Previous studies have attempted to correlate moisture content and temperature with methane emission by collecting soil samples from landfill soil covers and analysing it in the ...

  • Laboratory and Field Calibration of a Neutron Depth Moisture Gauge for Use in High Water Content Soils

    In recent years radioisotopes have been increasingly used for determining site values of the density and the water content of soils. Since field measurements obtained by neutron moisture gauges are relative, these instruments must be calibrated. Calibration is usually carried out in the laboratory by plotting neutron counting rates versus known water content values of several soil media, ...

  • Sample System Best Practices for Water and Hydrocarbon DP Applications

    Abstract Sampling techniques for BTU and moisture measurements are well understood but applications beyond the routine requires additional attention to detail. Two such applications are the subject of this paper. The first is the measurement of low level moisture (1 – 1,000 ppbv) for cryogenic processes. Measuring moisture below 1 ppm is an entirely different world from the traditional ...

  • Japanese Organics Recycling Association Formed

    Another backyard composting adage states that compost should have the feel of a wrung-out sponge — damp but not dripping wet. Actually, a wrung-out sponge may be on the dry side for composting, but the analogy does provide a great image for understanding the reasons for balancing moisture. Like a compost pile (or windrow or material in a vessel), a sponge is a solid mass containing an enormous ...

  • Advanced processes for low rank coal drying and dewatering in high efficient power plants

    During the combustion of high-moisture lignites (50?60 wt.%) in conventional power plants, a substantial amount of the energy content is required to evaporate the water. With a view to secure and strengthen brown coal's position as high available energy source, in recent years many attempts have been made to develop technologies for an energy-efficient drying or dewatering process. In this paper ...

  • Contaminant removal from dry and wet sands by thermal desorption

    Infrared heating was used to determine the effects of temperature and moisture on the removal of selected organic compounds from contaminated sand matrices. Quartz sand was used as a chemically inert surrogate for soil to isolate the heat transfer and mass transfer effects without any chemical contribution from soil. The selected organic contaminants were 3-nitrobenzene sulphonic acid, sodium ...
