Bonus Report: Gas Processing Developments

In-line laboratory and real-time quality management

An in-depth look at NIR spectroscopy

Valleur, M., Technip

Process plants have traditionally relied on laboratory-quality determinations and a limited number of in-line measurements to control feed qualities, intermediate streams and commercial products. Driven by a very demanding economic environment, this situation has changed dramatically with progress in reliable, accurate and affordable process spectrometers, advances in spectral information processing techniques (chemometrics) and availability of fast real-time computers. Spectroscopic methods have found applications in many sectors, including agricultural and environmental sciences, food and beverage, the pharmaceutical industry, electronics, oil and gas, petrochemicals, etc. Refer to Workm
