A well designed sampling system is key to achieving correct measurement and reliable long-term operation of any moisture or hydrocarbon dew point analyzer. Systems that disregard the requirements for adequate sample conditioning will fail to achieve the levels of accuracy promised in the analyzer data sheet and also may be very costly for the user in the longer term. Our Systems Engineering team can provide custom design and build services to suit your Class I Division 1 or 2 application.
The analyzers and sampling systems in the range are designed to meet world wide safety standards from ATEX, IECEx, Class I Division 1 and GOST-Ex. Full details are on our accreditations page.
With markets shifting towards increased activity in LNG processing and transport, along with the development of unconventional gas sources, the control of moisture and hydrocarbon dew point is critical for the operational safety and efficiency of the plant equipment.
For all natural gas transportation, storage and conditioning plant, a clear view of the process environment is essential. Our broad range of moisture and hydrocarbon dew point analyzers provide that insight.
In isomerisation processes, it is critical to strictly control moisture levels within the feedstock to maximise the lifetime of the catalyst bed. Our products enable continuous on-line monitoring of the moisture content, therefore maintaining efficient plant operation.
In many petrochemical processes the presence of moisture has serious detrimental effects on plant operation and production efficiency. For instance, the presence of moisture in solvents used in polymer production results in adverse changes in fluid viscosity and drying times. Accurate and fast moisture measurements are key to maintaining quality.
For any process application where keeping moisture levels as low as possible is of critical importance, highly reliable, fast and accurate measurement of trace levels of moisture content (ppbV and ppmV) are required. Our advanced quartz crystal microbalance technology can help.
The applications for our process analyzers are not limited to those listed on this page.
We have over 40 years experience measuring humidity & performing calibrations and can help you choose the best product for your application.
