Meet Subpart W emissions compliance with automated data integration
-Hong Qin, February 01, 2016

On October 30, 2009, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published the Mandatory Reporting of Greenhouse Gases Rule (referred to as 40 CFR Part 98), which requires reporting of greenhouse gas (GHG) data and other relevant information from large sources and suppliers in the US.

Minimize evaporation losses by calculating boiloff gas in LPG storage tanks
-S. Shiva Shamekhi, N. Ashouri, February 01, 2016

Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) is stored and transported in tanks as a cryogenic liquid, at a temperature below its boiling point near atmospheric pressure.

Live Webcast: Automated Moisture Analysis of Liquefied Petroleum Gas and Other Petrochemicals Register Now
Measuring the true water content in liquefied gas is a challenge facing refineries, fracking operations, and natural gas processors. Techniques commonly used today include freeze valve testing and humidity sensors which only provide an overview of the sample’s wetness. Depending on the type of gas, water may have a stronger affinity for either the liquid or the gaseous phase. Since these common methods are limited to measuring only the gaseous phase, it is impossible to get a true, quantitative moisture measurement.
Karl Fisher technology can be used to measure absolute water content in liquefied gas. A KF Gas Analyzer uses mass-flow technology to quantitatively sample liquid or gas phases in compressed LPGs and perform low-level Karl Fischer titration analysis. Accurate and repeatable moisture detection as low as 5ppm in samples like propane, butane, ethylene, and butene ensures a product that is safe for transport or optimal for use in high-quality chemical and polymer production.
