Reflux Water and LPG Analysis
Amine Experts has developed a proprietary method to quickly and accurately determine the ammonium salt content of reflux water in refineries. This helps optimise the purge rate (if necessary) to the sour water stripper as well as the corrosiveness of the reflux water.
Employing specially developed in-house GC systems, Amine Experts is able to determine the following compounds in LPG samples:
Sulphur components: H2S, SO2, COS, CS2, mercaptans
Hydrocarbon components: CH4, C2H4, C2H6, C3H8, iC4H10, nC4H10, iC5H12, nC5H12, C6H6, C6, C7, C8-C10
Air/inert gas components: H2, Ar/O2, N2, CO, CO2
The normal analytical range for H2 is as low as 0.5 percent. The normal analytical range for the sulphur components is 1 ppm to 100 percent. The normal analytical range for all other components is 25 ppm to 100 percent. The analytical ranges for sulphur and hydrocarbon components can be extended to 0.1 ppm if required.
