Spectroscopy provides a non-destructive method of quality control for oil and gas applications.
Crude oil refinement: The refinement of crude oil, generates a wide variety of petroleum products.
Natural gas refinement: In-line analysis of natural gas consists primarily of methane, but commonly includes varying hydrocarbons such as ethane, propane, butane and pentanes as well as hydrogen sulfide and carbon dioxide. These heavier hydrocarbons are extracted to produce a purer dry methane for consumers. The separated natural gas liquids (NGLs) are useful as a chemical feedstock for petrochemical plants, burned for space heat and cooking and/or blended into vehicle fuel.
Petrochemicals: Petrochemicals or petroleum distillates, are derived from the refinement of crude oil, natural gas, or renewable sources. In-line analysis of petrochemicals, such as olefins and aromatics, incorporated into processing plants will improve quality control and quality assurance measurements. Our solutions are designed for real time analysis with high reproducibility, high efficiency, no movable parts and high dynamic range.
