Temporary Heat Exchangers Keep Plants Running Profitably
15 October 2020

Given that refineries and petrochemical plants are usually operating beyond their limits, heat exchangers are often a bottleneck to increasing capacity or maintaining product split. This paper demonstrates how temporary heat exchangers can be installed to solve these problems and streamline catalyst cooldowns. A case study shows how this solution not only helped a producer avoid steep fines, but also yielded tens of millions of dollars of profit that would otherwise have been lost.

Reduce CAPEX by 50% and Footprint by 40% in Gas Quality Measurement Applications
10 September 2020

Compliance with gas quality specifications requires the measurement of both sulfur and natural gas energy content. Supporting these measurements often involves multiple gas analyzers or expensive and large conventional air-bath oven gas chromatographs.

 This white paper outlines ways to reduce cost, footprint, and complexity by leveraging the industry’s first explosion-proof gas chromatograph capable of combining the measurement of hydrogen sulfide (H2S), energy content, hydrocarbon dew point, and total sulfur compounds in a single compact, field-mountable gas analyzer solution.
