    Measurement of C1-C5 with carbon dioxide for oil & gas exploration.

    The PetroAlert Model 8900 combines the selectivity of gas chromatography with the sensitivity, broad dynamic range, and hydrocarbon selectivity of a flame ionization detector (FID) providing fast analysis of C1-C5 hydrocarbons and Carbon Dioxide required in Mud Logging for Oil & Gas exploration. The PetroAlert Model 8900 uses a dual column configuration with timed backflush to vent which is used to strip off moisture and C6+ hydrocarbons. A pre-cut column is used in series with the analytical column. At sample injection a fixed sample volume is carried to the pre-cut column. Backflush of the pre-cut column is timed from sample injection so that only C1-C5 hydrocarbons are eluted from the pre-cut column to the analytical column. C6+ hydrocarbons on the pre-cut column are then vented. Then a third column is used in conjunction with a second 10-port valve for individual analysis of methane. C1-C5 hydrocarbons are separated on the analytical column and elute to the flame ionization detector (FID) for analysis.

    Carbon capture and storage (CCS) applications

    Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is an emerging method of reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of power plants. In a process called ‘scrubbing’, the carbon dioxide emissions can be absorbed into chemical solvents consisting of amines or carbonates. Scrubbing is a well-established method of carbon capture, with virtually every commercial CO2 capture plant in operation using this process. In the process, the first step is the removal of impurities from the flue gas, such as hydrocarbons and oxides of both nitrogen and sulfur (NOx and SOx). Next the purified gas is passed through an absorption column filled with the chemical scrubbing solvent. The solvent reacts with the carbon dioxide and selectively absorbs it from the gas stream. When CO2-rich solvent is heated, the carbon dioxide is released as a nearly pure gas.

    Measurement of acetaldehyde, methanol, & benzene in CO2 applications for gas manufacturers & food & beverage industry

    The BevAlert Model 8900 provides direct measurement of Acetaldehyde, Methanol, and Benzene (AMB) in Carbon Dioxide. The instrument is utilized by Specialty Gas Manufacturers and the Food and Beverage Industry to monitor trace impurities in CO2 used in carbonated beverages. The BevAlert Model 8900 employs a photoionization detector (PID). The AMB in the gas sample are physically separated using proprietary GC columns. A dual-column configuration with timed backflush to vent is used to strip off moisture and heavier gases. At sample injection, a fixed volume of sample is carried through the pre-cut column. The backflush is timed so that primarily the AMB and other similar compounds continue on to the analytical column. Contaminants are then backflushed to vent. Acetaldehyde, Methanol, and Benzene are separated from potentially interfering components on the analytical column and elute to the detector for analysis.

    SF6 Leak Detection

    Monitoring Sulfur Hexafluoride (SF6) in the Power Utility Industry. Monitoring Sulfur Hexafluoride in the Power Utility Industry The SF6 Leak Detector 3434i from LumaSense offers an unmatched combination of performance and convenience. Based on the company’s Photoacoustic Spectroscopy (PAS) technology, the system offers highly accurate, reliable and stable quantitative gas analysis and detection. The growing environmental requirements and pressures regarding the use of SF6 make LumaSense’s system a coveted tool designed for everyday use. The system is able to measure the total concentration of the SF6 gas in an enclosed area, where the switchgear (or other SF6 filled equipment) is tested. Although only the total amount leaked is required by today’s standards, it is also advantageous to be able to pin point the leaks. This makes it easier to improve the integrity of the equipment. The SF6 Leak Detector system meets all of requirements for confined area such as substation Monitoring.

    Gas monitoring instruments and systems for phosgene monitoring

    Phosgene COCl2 is a colorless gas. While it has been used as a Chemical Weapon Agent (CWA) in the past, currently this poisonous gas is also an important reagent in synthesis in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries. The plants using phosgene are typically equipped with gas sensors to detect leaks in the indoor ambient air. The critical situations arise when equipment in contact with the gas at the manufacturing facilities are serviced and maintained. As phosgene is very poisonous, even small gas pockets in serviced equipment may be dangerous to maintenance personnel. Gasmet™ FTIR Gas Analyzers are ideal tools to monitor point sources of phosgene. The measurement technology has high specificity, may be operated continuously, and has a fast response time.

    Gas Detection and Analysis Equipment for Chemical and Petrochemical

    In a complex petrochemical facility there may be many thousands of potential leaks paths. Some may be leaking but most will not. Using an infrared Gas Detection camera allows the user to examine many potential leaks sources in a short time and from a distance. The EPA acknowledged gas imaging cameras, such as Opgal’s EyeCGas®, as an approved Leak Detection and Repair (LDAR) Method 21 alternate work practice (AWP).

    Measurement of methane and non-methane hydrocarbons for environmental air quality.

    The Model 8900 Methane/Non-Methane Analyzer provides direct measurement of Methane and Non-Methane Hydrocarbons. This instrument is utilized in ambient air monitoring networks around metropolitan areas, fence-line monitoring at industrial plants and hazardous waste sites, and in the production of high purity industrial gases. Methane is a naturally occurring gas generated from the decomposition of biological materials and industrial activity. Since Methane is not considered a pollutant it is the Non-Methane hydrocarbons that are of primary concern.
