Tackling New VOC Regulations In New Mexico Head On

Posted by TechStar on May 11, 2023 10:23:00 AM
Written By KECO's own, Umberto Cabarrocas
Attention all exploration and production companies operating in New Mexico! A new bill has been introduced that requires you to report the quantities of VOCs in your produced water starting January 2023. This is a significant step forward in protecting the environment and public health, but it also means that companies need to have a reliable and accurate method of measuring VOCs in real-time. KECO offers a cutting-edge VOCs in produced water analyzer that can provide you with accurate measurements in real-time, ensuring compliance with the new regulations while also improving production efficiency and reducing costs.

DO Measurement in Waste Water Treatment

Posted by TechStar on Dec 15, 2022 9:45:00 AM

Controlling the world’s water resources is arguably one of the most critical issues. Water demand from industry and domestic users is set to rise throughout the industrialized world, while water supplies are finite. Legislation constantly demands improvements in potable water quality and reduces the contaminants that may be discharged. Wastewater treatment is one way to get water back. Wastewater is subjected to various treatments in wastewater treatment plants, each intended to remove contaminants and other hazardous substances from the water. The objective is to create water from sewage that is safe to discharge into waterways and won’t endanger the environment or human health. Over the last few years, Yokogawa has been applying minimized maintenance measurement systems to an industry that, more than ever, is concerned with condition-based maintenance and the integrity of the measured variable.

The Three Critical Roles of Flue Gas Analysis

Posted by TechStar on Nov 17, 2022 10:20:00 AM

In any combustion process, it is necessary to monitor the inlet flow rates of fuel and air to the burner. While these flow rates provide baseline parameters to set a flame, they do not provide feedback to reveal or alert any potential concerns with the combustion reaction, such as incomplete combustion from imperfect mixing in the burner or safety risks such as fuel leaks or loss of flame. Flue gas analysis offers one approach to monitor the process and provide feedback. It is especially important to consider when firing both hydrocarbon-based and high hydrogen fuels.

The Demo Unit That Was Not Returned

Posted by TechStar on Mar 2, 2022 10:56:00 AM

If you work in the natural gas industry or are an industrial user of natural gas, water dewpoint is not only a quality measurement but also a big concern. Water condensate presents serious challenges and issues for your process. It is highly corrosive and will form hydrates, which are ice-like solid molecules that can block the flow of gas in pipelines. In cold weather, it will also freeze reducing the pipe pressure.

Solution Breakdown: TDLS8000

Written By TechStar Solutions Specialist, Don Wyatt

Do you have Fired Heaters, High Performance Furnaces, Incinerators, Selective Catalytic Reduction Units (SCRs), Flare Lines, Tanks to blanket, Reactors to monitor, Marine Terminals for loading or unloading ships and barges?  If so, then you probably either have online gas analyzers or need them.  Many people that own these assets really don’t like online process analyzers or don’t like what it take to keep them running.  Traditionally these analyzers have been more complex then most of the instrumentation that is used in our industry.  This leads to performance less than the user would expect.

TDLS8000: Maintenance-Free, SIL2 Certified and Explosion-Proof

Posted by TechStar on Aug 20, 2019 3:00:00 PM

This blog post was originally posted by Yokogawa.

In almost any chemical production facility, various substances frequently have to be stored temporarily in tanks or tank farms. Depending on the chemical substance involved, this circumstance can sometimes entail a risk of explosion. Elementary protection must therefore be provided to rule out the possibility of explosion. Ideally, this protection should prevent an explosive gas mixture from forming in the tank’s gas phase in the first place. This can be achieved by inerting the gas phase by blanketing it with nitrogen.
