The Best Choice for Measuring Moisture in Petrochemical Plants and Refineries
PhyMetrix Portable Moisture Analyzer
REASONS FOR MEASURING THE MOISTURE CONTENT in PETROCHEMICAL PLANTS
Moisture must be controlled in feedstock to optimize catalyst bed lifetime.
e.g. Naphtha feed for isomerisation, Catalytic Reformer H2 Recycle Gas.
In many petrochemical processes moisture has negative effects on production efficiency, e.g. Butadiene for Synthetic Rubber, Aromatic Hydrocarbons, Ethylene for polymer production.
THE BEST CHOICE FOR MEASURING MOISTURE CONTENT in PETROCHEMICAL PLANTS and REFINERIES
The PhyMetrix Nanotechnology based moisture sensor combined with the unique PhyMetrix instrument design provide a much needed solution for Moisture Measurement in Petrochemical Applications.
The NanoTechnology Sensor: The PhyMetrix moisture analyzers utilize a proprietary Nanotechnology based metal oxide sensor. The NanoPore structure allows for a quick response on wetting-up and drying-down, high accuracy and reproducibility. Nanoscience by its very nature allows us to bring change in the critical properties of materials and thus add a new dimension to their applications. Consequently, our technology allows accurate, reproducible and quick measurements in the range of -110°C dewpoint to +20°C dewpoint.
PORTABLE MOISTURE ANALYZER FOR PETROCHEMICAL PLANTS and REFINERIES
A portable moisture analyzer, such as the handheld model PPMa or PPBa can be used to spot check measurements and determine if the on-line analyzer measurements are in agreement with the portable, which can be periodically sent to a lab for comparison to a NIST traceable chilled mirror standard. The Portable analyzer exposes its sensor to the gas under measurement for a very short time (few minutes) thus contamination is minimal, in addition the sensor is stored in a desiccant chamber where the desiccant absorbs any of the contaminants that were accumulated on the surface of the sensor.
The PhyMetrix product line is ideal for the moisture measurement needs in Petrochemical Plants and Refineries the on-line (ExMa/PLMa) and hand-held (PPMa/PPBa) provide:
● High Accuracy over a wide measuring range -110°C to +20°C dewpoint
● Speed of Response
● Eliminating unpleasant time consuming cleaning procedures
● Saving valuable service technician time
● Low Cost of Ownership
● Extremely Easy to Operate, with intuitive graphical user interface
● Resistant to Contaminants common in field measurements e.g. Cl, HCl and Cl2
● Superior Reliability
● Hazardous area use approvals
● Portable analyzer available for spot checking:
● Expert prompt support from PhyMetrix engineers.
● Training software available for technicians to practice on the use of the analyzer at their convenience.
