  • Analysers and next generation SRU control

    The history of on-line process analytics is a relatively short one. Development was driven by the need for process control of high value hydrocarbonbased products. The first on-line analyser applications came during the second war. Rapid development came in the 1970s with the advent of the microprocessor and resultant chemometric techniques. Led by Phillips Petroleum, Union Carbide and Dupont ...

  • Gold nanoparticles functionalised with Ru–dicarboxybipyridine–trimercaptotriazine: SERS effect and application in plasmonic dye solar cells

    A dicarboxybipyridine–trimercaptotriazine ruthenium complex, primarily designed for dye–sensitised solar cells (DSSC), has been successfully employed in the generation of electrostatically stabilised gold colloids, because of its high negative charge and capability of binding to gold nanoparticles via the sulphur groups. Strong SERS enhancements have been obtained for the isolated gold ...

  • Failure analysis showing the effect of sulphur content in stainless steel on the resistance to stress corrosion cracking in marine environments at ambient temperatures

    The risk of environmentally assisted cracking in downhole components is high due to sour conditions, i.e. the presence of hydrogen sulphide. Therefore a range of materials possessing excellent corrosion resistance are employed. However, corrosion is not only downhole related but is also a common problem on the platform deck itself due to airborne salts from ocean spray. For this reason the ...

  • Focusing on environmental pressures from long‑distance transport

    The European Environment Agency's (EEA's) annual Transport and Environment Reporting Mechanism (TERM) report presents an overview of transport demand and pressures from the sector on the environment, as well as selected related impacts and policy responses. The report makes use of the latest available data in order to assess key trends and overall progress in meeting policy targets. The 2014 TERM ...

  • The Seven Deadly Sins of Sulphur Recovery

    Introduction - The availability of information regarding the operation and optimization of Claus sulphur recovery units has increased significantly over the past years. For individuals involved in the day to day operation of the Claus unit, however, the sheer volume of information can often be overwhelming, and it is difficult to determine what is of direct importance to the plant performance. ...

  • Measurement of Sulfur in Refinery Flare Gas Streams for Compliance with EPA SubpartJ(a) Regulations

    The Challenge Measurement of high range and low range H,S in refinery flare gas streams for compliance with EPA regulation NSPS Subpart J(a). The rule has placed an extra investment and operational burden on petroleum refineries to meet the regulatory requirement. AMETEK offers an economical solution to meet the challenge with an emphasis on lower capital and operating cost along with ...

  • Can slow steaming lower cost impacts of sulphur directive – shippers’ perspective

    The International Maritime Organization (IMO) (2013, 2014) and the European Parliament (EP) (2005, 2012) have addressed the matter that harmful air emissions should be decreased in shipping transportation. The purpose of this empirical case study is to examine and anticipate in detail if slow steaming in freight shipping can bring any economically positive effects to shippers in the new fuel ...
