Measuring Water Vapor in Hydrocarbon Streams

Extracted from a variety of different sources, natural gas is composed of many different hydrocarbons and includes other, less desirable, impurities. These impurities – such as water, carbon dioxide, and hydrogen sulfide – are removed due to adverse effects, including:

  • Reducing the heating value of the natural gas
  • Damaging piping and other mechanical hardware due to freezing or corrosion
  • Meeting tariff limits associated with transaction contracts

Aluminum Oxide Sensors in Trace Moisture Applications: NINE THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN MAKING MOISTURE MEASUREMENTS IN GASES

Posted by TechStar on Oct 15, 2019 10:56:00 AM

Trace moisture measurements in gas applications often appear to be simple and straight forward because the theory is relatively well understood; however, when the analyzer system is in service and we see unexpected measurement results, the head scratching begins.

Electrically everything appears to be correct so we assume the probe/sensor must be out of specification, right???
