Glycol Analysis


Dehydration Experts has world class laboratory analysis and evaluation capabilities to undertake a complete study of glycol samples. This information is required to properly evaluate and troubleshoot the performance of the dehydration or refrigeration system. When these analyses are carried out on a regular basis, a very valuable operating history is established, which significantly aids troubleshooting and measuring unit performance. 

Analyses Include: 

  • Glycol concentration
  • Water content 
  • Alkalinity (% as amine bound in solution)
  • GC analysis of the solvent (to identify degradation products) 
  • Total Suspended Solid content
  • Chloride content
  • Hydrocarbon content
  • pH
  • Visual Appearance
  • Recommended Limits for all components
  • Foam test

Additional analyses available:

  • Metal Scan (Fe, Mn, Cr, Ni, K, Na)
  • Ion chromatographic (IC) analysis of all organic and inorganic acids

Dehydration Experts’ analysis report includes:
  • GC Analysis of all components;
  • Physical observation of sample;
  • Comments on the significance of the results; and
  • Target values for all parameters.
