P S ANALYTICAL ONLINE MERCURY IN NATURAL GAS ANALYSER ACHIEVES ATEX CERTIFICATION
As part of its ongoing product development P S Analytical has recently received the ATEX EC-Type certification permitting our online mercury measurement system for natural gas to be installed in Category 2 IIC T4 designated areas. The procedure used for the measurement of mercury by atomic fluorescence basically follow the ASTM 6350-98 procedure and the PSA 10.670 is specifically configured for the petrochemical industry.
The system which has found widespread application is based upon the PSA Sir Galahad instrument and can be readily tailored to individual customer requirements specifically to handle natural gas and liquefied measurements to be made at various stages of the process and also enables the user to control mercury removal techniques to enable to plant to provide products within the low levels of mercury in the material and to achieve a better sales price of that product.
Systems have been installed worldwide since 2001 and these have been operated on a continuous basis using P S Analytical proprietary calibration devices to keep the instrumentation fully calibrated and minimising operator intervention with the system.
Where clients are unsure if they have a requirement for continuous online system the PSA 10.537 PLD's can be used to carry out preliminary tests on the Hg levels. This system in suitable for use in hazardous areas and is the accepted industry standard for this type of measurement.
