Power Plant & Power Station Emissions Monitoring

by Procal - Parker Hannifin Corp     based in Peterborough, UNITED KINGDOM

For more than 25 years, coal and biomass fired plants have formed the largest installed user base for Procal CEM systems. Throughout this period, there has been increasing environmental scrutiny and process upgrades, including the near-ubiquitous use of after-treatment systems such as sophisticated FGD and SCR.

Measurement of hydrogen in fuels for oil & gas industry

by Oxford Instruments plc     based in Abingdon, UNITED KINGDOM

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.

Cloud Point of Diesel Fuel #3074

by Guided Wave Inc,     based in Rancho Cordova, CALIFORNIA (USA)

The Cloud Point of a diesel fuel is the temperature below which wax forms giving the fuel a cloudy appearance. This parameter is an important property of the fuel since the presence of solidified waxes can clog filters and negatively impact engine performance. The traditional laboratory methods for the measurement of Cloud Point are optical in nature, but rely on cooling the fuel for the wax formation to occur. Guided Wave’s process analyzers can measure compositional changes in the fuel that will be directly related to the wax formation and hence the Cloud Point. This note will discuss the use of Guided Wave hardware and software tools for the measurement of the Cloud Point of diesel fuel using fiber optic-based, near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy. NIR can be applied in real time directly in process.

Petroleum testing for petrochemical industries

Insitu Flue Gas Desulfurization - DeSOx Analyzer

by Cerex Monitoring Solutions, LLC.     based in Atlanta, GEORGIA (US) (USA)

The Cerex UV3000P in-situ multi-gas analyzer for DeSOx, DeNOx, Ammonia Slip and general CEMs.

Contaminated Soils with Diesel Fuel and Heating Oils

by Sitelab Corporation     based in West Newbury, MASSACHUSETTS (USA)

Sitelab's UVF-3100D is used to test soil to help investigate and clean up sites contaminated by above ground or underground storage tanks (USTs). Soils can be analyzed for extended diesel range organics (EDRO) or extractable petroleum hydrocarbons (EPH). Results correlate well to confirmatory lab methods.

Recycling waste oil into a resuable fuel for waste & recycling industry

by Oxford Instruments plc     based in Abingdon, UNITED KINGDOM

With the increasing requirement to reduce or recycle products, used lubricating oils obtained from automobiles, large plant equipment, generators etc. are collected and sent to a facility to recycle the waste oil product into a reusable fuel. This fuel can be used by power stations and other facilities to reduce their usage of original and more expensive fossil fuel.

NDT Inspections for Petroleum Retail

by Inspectahire Instrument Company Ltd.     based in Aberdeen, UNITED KINGDOM

Safety and cost are two of the biggest concerns in industry today. At Inspectahire we realise this and aim to minimise the effect of them both. We do this by using the latest inspection technology which can either be operated remotely or if the requirements allow, by man.

Haze Monitoring

by Ecotech Pty Ltd     based in Knoxfield, AUSTRALIA

The principle cause of regional and urban haze, or visibility impairment, is light extinction caused by fine particles, sulfates, organic and elemental carbon, nitrates and crustal matter. Particles between 0.1 and one micrometers in size are most effective at scattering light, in addition to being of greatest concern for human health.

Environmental

by Hiden Analytical     based in Warrington, UNITED KINGDOM

The analysis of volatile organic compounds at low concentration levels is fundamental to pollution monitoring and control. Hiden’s Hydramass spectrometer is a multi-stream gas analysis system for analysis of volatile organic compounds to the sub ppm level. In sea water the analysis of volatile organic compounds is used for both pollution monitoring and ecological studies. Hiden’s HPR 40 dissolved species analyser provides ppb sensitivity

Fuel Cells

by Hiden Analytical     based in Warrington, UNITED KINGDOM

Hiden gas/vapour analysers, optimized specifically for fuel cell research, offer a number of key benefits over other analysis techniques: rapid response (critical for temperature programmed studies), wide dynamic range, repeatability and linearity, are all of the up most importance when analyzing processes - particularly those in the presence of hydrogen - with widely varying gas concentrations. These features provide for accurate, stable and reproducible analysis of low molecular weight species, over a wide concentration range, present in a hydrogen rich atmosphere, and are found to be invaluable in applications such as the conversion of hydrocarbons, or alcohols, to hydrogen (reformers) for use in Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) Fuel Cells.

The measurement of the octane number of gasoline using NIR spectroscopy is both fast and reliable utilizing Guided Wave analyzers. Results are available in real-time (seconds) for multiple parameters in complex streams. Request Application Note #3012

Cetane Number of Diesel Fuels #3010

by Guided Wave Inc,     based in Rancho Cordova, CALIFORNIA (USA)

The Cetane number of a diesel fuel is a measure of the ignition properties and is an important specification that must be met during fuel production. The traditional laboratory method for Cetane number determination is the knock engine method in which the fuel is burned and its combustion characteristics compared to known standards. This method is time and labor intensive, and provides no ability for real time control of production. This note discusses the use of Guided Wave hardware and software tools for the measurement of Cetane number in diesel fuel using fiber optic-based, Near-Infrared (NIR) spectroscopy. NIR is applied in real-time directly in process monitoring or as a laboratory procedure. In either case NIR is a time and money saving alternative to traditional methods.
