Process Monitoring Applications

  • XRF analysis for positive material identification

    Positive Material Identification, or PMI, is an integral part of process safety management in many industries including the petroleum refining and petrochemical. Whether the need is quality control, sorting of scrap material, or even failure analysis, materials testing to provide verification of metal alloy grade and composition is crucial to the success of many businesses.

  • Measurement solution for acrylates speciation

    A customer had a requirement for continuous Ethyl Acrylate monitoring. The process operations emit multiple Acrylate species, all at low concentrations, but only Ethyl Acrylate being reportable to the EA under the terms of the IPC permit. A 204M FTIR analyser was deployed and a chemometric model was built specifically to target Acrylates, with the purpose of separating and accurately quantify the target Ethyl Acrylate species.

  • Percent Aromatics in Gasoline #3008

    The aromatic content of gasoline determines many of its combustion properties. Since it also impacts the environmental characteristics of the fuel it is desirable to have accurate measurements of this parameter. The traditional analytical method for measuring aromatics is either gas chromatography (GC) or an older method entitled fluorescent indicator adsorption (FIA), both of which are time and labor intensive. This note will discuss the use of Guided Wave hardware and software tools for the measurement of % aromatics in fuel products using fiber optic-based, Near-Infrared (NIR) spectroscopy. NIR can be 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.

    Analytical and measuring instruments of chemical and petrochemical

    In the chemical field, ICP-AES is used for a broad range of analysis in order to manage trace amounts of hazardous metals in the manufacturing process, manage additive elements essential to the functionality of a product, and manage the environment of the entire factory. Therefore, it is desirable to have a robust, highly stable system able to reliably accept the injection of a broad variety of samples, regardless of the type of solvent (aqueous/organic) or the presence of matrices. It is also important to simplify processes and reduce costs, which enhances the productivity of daily quality control work.

    AutoChem - Particle and Droplet Processing

    Optimize Multiphase Processes With In Situ Video and Real-Time Particle and Droplet Measurements. Particles and droplets are everywhere in the chemical, consumer products, pulp and paper, and petroleum industries. Particles grow, agglomerate, break, dissolve, and change shape - all of which can have an impact on process performance and product quality. To be successful, chemists and engineers must understand and optimize particle size distributions to control process efficiency such as stability, separations, or flow properties. In addition, particle and emulsion distributions must be well controlled to ensure repeatable product yield, shelf life, and bulk density.

    AutoChem - Process Analytical Technology (PAT)/Quality by Design (QbD)

    Process Analytical Technology (PAT) has been implemented for years, particularly by the chemical industry for the control of chemical processes. More recently, PAT has become a cornerstone of the US Food and Drug Administration’s (US FDA) Quality by Design (QbD) initiative for both the design and control of quality processes. For this reason, the pharmaceutical industry is also active in utilizing PAT tools. PAT tools can be implemented in both the lab and the plant, with laboratory PAT focused more on the design of a quality process and with plant PAT focused on the monitoring and control of the process.
