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.

Plans are underway to utilize existing natural gas infrastructure for the transportation and storage of hydrogen. Current government environmental initiatives across Europe require 20% of EU energy from renewables. Biomethane injection into natural gas distribution networks is commonplace in Europe and North America. Hydrogen injection is a further phase in reducing the proportion of fossil fuel within natural gas supplies. Progress towards up to 20% H2 injection, produced via electrolysis of water powered from excess solar and wind generated electricity, is envisaged within networks across EU countries.

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.
