    Substitute fuel sampling system

    A critical eye for every sample! Analytical shredding systems for QA work are a fundamental preliminary component in the production of substitute fuels. With primary fuels and finite resources subject to continuous price increases, the significance of substitute fuels continues to rise unabated. For plant operators, this offers first-class potential and attractive prospects for the future. Businesses that buy in their substitute fuel from external suppliers are faced with two key analytical requirements before putting it to use: pollutant analysis and calorific analysis. To ensure the proper handling of these analyses, a sophisticated sampling system is required.

    Laboratory instruments solutions for petrochemical and biofuel

    Crude oil is a highly complex mixture of hydrocarbons. Through desalting, distillation, and conversion, it is transformed into fractions of higher-quality hydrocarbons such as paraffins, aromatics, naphthenes, and olefins. Different ratios of these so-called PIANO compounds are blended to yield different fuel and lubricant types. Increasingly, fossil fuels are blended with biofuels. Both blending and refining processes are demanding and require precise and reliable analysis. Regardless whether you deal with fossil or biogenic products, we are your specialist when it comes to analyzing them in accordance with international standards.

    Monitoring of leaks in heat exchangers

    The Situation

    A California refinery produces xylene for use as commercial product and a precursor for petrochemical manufacturing. A primary component to the production of xylene is the isolation and purification of the chemical from a complex mixture of petroleum hydrocarbons. Steam based heat exchangers are used to process the xylene. Inherent to the design and rough duty heat exchangers face during their operation, leaks can and do develop. When a heat exchanger leaks, xylene contaminates the steam and produces a number of problems ranging from loss of final product, contamination and fouling of steam transfer piping, and ultimately bio-fouling of cooling towers. Consistent and reliable monitoring for xylene or other petroleum hydrocarbons in cooling water or steam condensate can alleviate product loss and process equipment down time.

    Measurement of sulphur in oil and fuels for oil & gas industry

    There is a continuing and increasing demand for a rapid, simple and cost-effective measurement of sulfur in a wide range of petroleum products including automotive, marine and aviation fuels. Benchtop EDXRF instruments such as the world renown Lab-X3500 and associated X-Supreme8000, can be found in many refinery laboratories/testing houses, with the instrument often operated by production staff on a 24/7 basis, giving accurate results conforming to globally accepted test methods, e.g. ASTM D4294, ISO20847, and the new ISO13032,etc. Both instruments used the analytical technique of Energy-Dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) which is well regarded for its excellent performance, versatility, ease of use, speed, and cost-effectiveness.

    Measurement of hydrogen in fuels for oil & gas industry

    The combustion properties of fuels are key to the efficient and safe operation of engines used in machinery and plant. One important way to measure the combustion properties of a fuel is by its hydrogen content. The measurement of hydrogen content is widely used for the characterisation of aviation fuel but with the increasing costs of all fuels and the greater incentives for fuel adulteration, this test is increasingly being adopted for non-aviation applications. Our benchtop NMR analyser MQC-23 system is widely used for the measurement of hydrogen in fuels in accordance with ASTM D7171-05.

    Methane and Carbon Dioxide Sensing for Biogas Applications

    Application: Anaerobic Digestion plants produce various gas components from a source material (or feedstock) that can be composed either solely or as a mixture of slurries, purpose-grown crops, food and organic waste material. The composition of the gas produced varies depending upon the feedstock and the Anaerobic digestion process itself. As a consequence, it is normal to measure various components of the resultant gas produced to evaluate the efficiency of the Anaerobic Digestion process. Furthermore, due to the flammable nature of Methane, and the risk of asphyxiation, most plants feature ambient air monitoring to protect personnel from any unplanned accumulation of leaked gas.

    EDXRF spectrometers for ultra low sulfur

    Compliance with the ASTM method at low concentrations sulfur. Sulfur is a major element of importance because it forms sulfuric acid in the atmosphere when burned and has harmful impact on the human health and on the environment. In the mid-2000`s, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) began a program to greatly reduce the amount of Sulfur in petroleum products. The current allowable sulfur limit in vehicle fuel is 15 ppm (parts per million). To reduce the pollution coming from vessels the international maritime Organization (IMO) established new limits on emission of sulfur oxides. In Emission Controlled Areas the sulfur limit will be 0.1 % starting 2015. The continued strategy by EPA and IMO to reduce the amount of sulfur in petroleum products put a great demand on sulfur monitoring in fuel and oil products.

    Machine condition monitoring for biofuels

    Overview

    The use of ethanol as a gasoline additive has increased dramatically over the past few years and will likely continue to increase. For fuel blenders, this means an added challenge to avoid an incorrect blend that could lead to regulatory fines, loss of customer confidence and damage to equipment. A quick on-site analysis with a portable mid-infrared based analyzer, such as the InfraCal 2 Ethanol Blend Analyzer shown in the photo, can help fuel blenders quickly flag out-of-spec product and ensure the final blend meets specifications.

    Precision moisture analysis instruments for measuring moisture and ash in biomass

    If you produce or consume biomass fuels, you know that quality is critical to your success, and you know that moisture and ash content control are critical to biomass fuel quality. Too much moisture and you get poor efficience and high emissions. Too much ash and you get fouling and slagging. And if either of those is uncontrolled, purchase contracts can fall through. Computrac can help.
