Moisture and hydrocarbon dew point are key parameters for determining the quality of natural gas as well as avoiding damage and reducing maintenance on plant equipment from upstream through to downstream processes. Controlling levels of H2S - a major contaminant in natural gas – protects equipment from corrosion damage both saving on maintenance costs and ensuring safety. In storage and transport, oxygen analysis provides an early warning of leaks and also ensures safety by avoiding explosive atmospheres.
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.
Other than the need to meet the regulatory requirements for gas quality; there are many reasons why oxygen is undesirable in natural gas:
