  • The environmental aspects of the evaporation of BTEX from gasoline with and without ethanol

    In this work the vapours from two columns simulating gasoline–contaminated soils (with and without ethanol) were monitored. Standards mixtures of BTEX, containing different ethanol contents were also analysed. The instrumental analysis was performed by Gas Chromatography with a Flame Ionisation Detector. Among BTEX, except benzene, in both columns the evaporation rate increases with time. In the ...

  • BP BTC Pipeline case study

    Spanning three countries from the Caspian Sea to the Mediterranean coast. At a length of 1,768km, the Baku Tbilisi Ceyhan (BTC) Pipeline is one of the great engineering endeavours of the new millennium. The BTC oil export pipeline transports crude oil from offshore oil fields in the Caspian Sea to the Turkish coast of the Mediterranean from where the crude is further shipped via tankers to ...

  • Ethanol rail car facilities case study

    Due to the advanced true flame detection technology employed within the FDS range of flame detectors, they are capable of detecting ethanol fires. At Ethanol Rail Car terminals across the mid west of the United States we have a large install base of Micropack FDS301 Visual Flame Detectors. With the detectors ability to record any fires it detects, as well as the ability to remotely view the live ...

  • Le Dong offshore gas platform case study

    Le Dong 22-1 is jointly developed with Le Dong 15-1. The major development facilities of LD22-1 include an eight-legged platform and 13 production wells while LD 15-1 has an eight-legged platform and 8 production wells. The two fields will share part of subsea production facilities in order to reduce the production cost. CNOOC limited acts as the operator and has 100% interest in the field. ...

  • BP Sangachal terminal case study

    One of the world’s largest integrated oil and gas processing terminals. Located 55km south of Baku, the Sangachal Terminal is a vital link in Azerbaijan’s oil and gas industry. An oil and gas terminal that receives, processes, stores and exports crude oil and gas produced from the Azerbaijan's offshore oilfields in the Caspian Sea. Treated crude oil and gas at the terminal ...

  • Detect Hydrogen Gas and Flames

    Under day-to-day conditions, people cannot see, smell, or taste the presence of hydrogen gas. Hydrogen, however, is very flammable and requires only a small amount of energy to ignite. In fact, if leaking from a pipe at a high enough pressure, hydrogen gas can self ignite without the aid of an external energy source. Working together, ...

  • Meeting Safety Requirements: “Certified SIL Capable”

    Life-saving safety equipment is becoming increasingly important in a wider cross-section of companies. So, at the same time, there is a growing trend to adopt best practices for the management of safety systems. Now industrial clients are looking for new design or upgrades to a plant to be in line with the Safety Instrumented System (SIS) standards of IEC61508* in addition to fire and gas system ...

  • Benefits of HART Communication-Enabled Gas and Flame Detectors

    Catastrophic results can occur when a fire or a flammable/toxic gas release goes undetected in any petrochemical facility. For early warning and prompt hazard mitigation, flame detectors and gas detectors are essential tools. Clear, usable, diagnostic information from these detection instruments is extremely valuable in ensuring the devices are properly maintained, tested, and poised to protect ...
