When things go wrong
Yet analyser installations can sometimes fail to deliver by:
There are many potential causes of these issues. Obviously the installations must be part of a suitable maintenance program. But regardless of maintenance there are fundamental installation factors that must be considered for each installation. Common issues seen with process analyser installations that cause problems are:
The Process Analyser
Process analysers (or analyzers) are these days considered essential for modern plant closed loop control, for fiscal metering and to optimize laboratory sampling frequencies.
Process analysers are expensive, with installed costs ranging from $20,000 for simple pH analysers, up to $10,000,000 for complex NMR analyser systems.
After this making such an investment, you want your analyser to function well over its lifetime, reliably producing the intended data stream for operations, billing, and quality control.
Process Analyser Troubleshooting
Process analyser troubleshooting can be a difficult task.
WAPGC have personnel with successful experience in design, installation and maintenance of process analysers at several Australian/Asian hydrocarbon processing installations. WAPGC personnel have experience with the following process analysers; Gas Chromatograph (GC), Density, IR, Distillation, Viscosity, PH, Flash Point, Cloud Point, Freeze Point, NIR, NMR.
WAPGC can assist you with the identification and rectification of your process analyser issues.
