  • Tips for Refinery Gas Analysis

    Refinery gas analysis (RGA) is an important application in oil and gas which characterizes the gases produced during crude oil refining, including stack emission, flame and reformate streams. The challenge in RGA analysis is the reliable analysis of variable sources and compositions of gases produced via fluid catalytic cracking (FCC). The analysis must be quick and accurate to allow engineers to ...

  • Maximising efficiency of AD plants with gas analysers - Case Study

    As focus around the globe is increasingly shifting towards renewable energy, anaerobic digestion (AD) has become an economically viable energy source that capitalizes on reusing our wasted materials. It is a relatively easy and natural means of turning a broad variety of complex waste into a simple fuel gas. It’s no surprise therefore, that the number of AD plants across the UK has risen in ...

  • How Gas Analyzers Can Benefit the Automotive Industry

    Emissions standards imposed upon auto engineering firms in the US could be set to change, as the Environmental Protection Agency reviews the current standards which have been in place since 2012. The EPA are considering redressing the greenhouse gas emissions standards for light-duty vehicles due for production in the model years 2022—2025, citing changing economic circumstances as the ...

  • Train derailment prompts contaminated land investigation - Case study

    On March 30th 2015 a long freight train, transporting a variety of goods including lumber and chemicals, wound its way through the state of Mississippi. At around 5pm, part of the train failed to negotiate a curved portion of the track in a rural area near Minter City, resulting in the derailment of nine railcars, one of which leaked chemicals onto agricultural farmland and woodlands. Emergency ...

  • How Does a Gas Analyser Work?

    Whatever you want to detect, you need to identify a property of the object that is easy-enough to measure. When it comes to monitoring and analysis of gaseous species (atoms or more commonly molecules), it turns out that it often is possible to utilize the optical properties of the gas. You need a light source, a light detector, and a characteristic behaviour of the gaseous species in question ...

  • Real-time O2 monitoring in VCM plants using the In-situ laser gas analyzer – Case Study

    Vinyl Chloride Monomer (VCM) Vinyl Chloride Monomer is a colorless, flammable gas. It is of very great importance as feedstock in the production of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), one of the world´s most versatile thermoplastics. Originally, acetylene has been used as feedstock for VCM production but was replaced stepwise by the inexpensive ethylene. Complete changeover to almost ...

  • Innovation and efficiency at the forefront of long-standing partnership - Case Study

    Wiltshire-based Malaby Biogas operates one of the few independent anaerobic digestion (AD) plants in the UK, specialising in the diversion of food waste from landfill. Its Bore Hill Farm Biodigester provides a combined waste disposal and energy generation solution in one safe, clean and highly-efficient process and the facility has gained a wide-ranging ...

  • APSI mode simplifies MS spectral analysis

    Analysis of gaseous species by quadrupole mass spectrometry involves ionisation of the molecular species most typically by the electron bombardment technique, the ionisation process creating fragmentation ions additionally to the parent ion. Spectral interpretation can then be compromised by spectral interference in some gaseous mixtures. Hiden Analytical introduce the APSI(Appearance Potential ...
