    Simplifying Continuous Gas Chromatograph Online Analysis Installation

    Gas chromatographs (GCs) are used in natural gas applications to measure the hydrocarbon components. The heavier natural gas liquids beyond butane and pentane are referred to as C6+ hydrocarbons. Gas chromatographs performing C6+ analysis are used by hydrocarbon processing facilities when high-quality product specifications are required or when rigid custody transfer standards are needed in natural gas trading operations...

    Hanwha Total Petrochemicals Reduces Costs and Improves Environmental Compliance with Conductivity

    by Lee Ju Yong, Applications and Customer Service, Emerson Most of us know that conductivity is an excellent way to detect the interface between a non-conductive liquid, such as a hydrocarbon, and a conductive aqueous solution. Even more impressive, however, is hearing how this vital analysis is saving time and money for real companies. Here’s a great example. Hanwha Total Petrochemicals is headquartered in Seoul...

    Improving Burner Control with Gas Chromatographs

    There once was a time for industrial manufacturers when they received fairly homogeneous supplies of natural gas that did not vary much in energy content. Here in the U.S. with the rapid increase in shale gas production as part of the overall energy mix, there is more variance. In a Power magazine article, Gas Chromatographs Offer New Technology for Power Plant Burner Control , Emerson’s Bonnie Crossland describes...

    Calibrating Toroidal Conductivity Sensors

    By Dave Joseph, Emerson Conductivity measurement is one of the most ubiquitous in industry so the issue of how to correctly calibrate a toroidal conductivity sensor comes up for a lot of plant personnel. Because the purpose of the measurement is to get information about the total concentration of ions in solution (i.e., the conductivity), the effect of sensor dimensions and windings must be accounted for. The correction...

    Optimizing Ammonia Usage in NOx Emission Reduction Processes

    Mono-nitrogen oxides (NO x ) including NO and NO 2 are byproducts of combustion where it occurs in the presence of nitrogen. Since the composition of the atmosphere is 78% nitrogen , this would include most places where this combustion occurs. These NOx gases : …react to form smog and acid rain as well as being central to the formation of tropospheric ozone . To control the level of NOx emissions to meet regulatory...

    Fixed Gas and Flame Detection Best Practices

    At the Emerson Exchange conference in Austin, Emerson’s Sean McLeskey presented Fixed Gas and Flame Detection Best Practices. His abstract: Many industrial processes involve dangerous gases and vapors: flammable, toxic, or both. With the different sensing technologies available, and the wide range of industrial applications that exist, selecting the best sensor and locating them properly for the job at hand can...
