Refineries process crude oil into usable petroleum-based chemicals. Process analyzers such as ATOM INSTRUMENT’s Flare Gas Analyzer, SOFRASER’s Thermoset Viscosity Analyzer, our Near Infrared Spectrometer/Photometers, and in-situ sample interfaces are all necessary for real-time monitoring in a profitable modern refinery. By installing and calibrating these process analyzers, technicians and plant managers gain access to a wide range of actionable information in seconds. Thus, enabling them to optimize operating conditions.
Near-Infrared (NIR) spectroscopy is used to monitor the hydrocarbon composition of various streams in the petrochemical and refining industries. actionable information. A sample interface can be installed in each processing stage of a refinery to provide real-time data and actionable information. At each stage of the refinery process, NIR spectroscopy is used to monitor specific traits such as the Research Octane Rating, benzene content, and butane content. Our NIR-UV-VIS portfolio delivers measurement for:
- Real-time monitoring of naphtha conversion, catalytic conversion, upgrading units, alkylation, and gasoline and diesel blending
