A representative composite sample of oil for analysis is crucial to meeting your product goals and maintaining a profitable bottom line. This will only become more important as the oil and gas market is expected to grow from $46.60 billion in 2021 to $49.58 billion in 2022. The market is anticipated to reach up to $80.77 billion by 2029.Read More
Modern refinery operations process an incoming crude oil stream into multiple high-value product streams, some needing additional processing. Both high-value and byproduct streams require periodic sampling to ensure that the refinery processes operate within specified parameters. Due to the processes' often high pressure and chemical nature, obtaining a representative sample safely is essential.Read More
Renewable hydrocarbon biofuels are fuels produced from biomass sources, such as vegetable oils, animal fats, or specialized crops. These products are chemically identical to standard petroleum-based products and can be used in existing engines and infrastructure. Because of this, these biofuels require stringent testing similar to petroleum-based products.Read More
With winter quickly approaching, frozen pipelines can have a lasting impact on your oil and gas production operations.Read More
Many industrial plants in the United States were built decades ago and were not expected to still be in operation. Yet many are still running today, well past their expected life span. Within these plants, hydrocarbon sampling systems and equipment are often overlooked, even as new technology and regulations demand more from them.Read More
The specialty chemicals industry produces various substances for many applications, including paints and inks, detergents, pharmaceuticals, and biocides for agricultural use. Skin and respiratory exposure to chemicals used to develop these materials can leave operators at risk for burns, respiratory complications, rashes, and cancer.
Because of these serious risks, the specialty chemicals industry faces some of the most stringent safety standards and governmental regulations. Chemical compliance relies on representative sampling to reduce employees’ exposure to chemicals while maximizing production and minimizing capital costs.
Specialty chemical plants manufacture compounds for many products in various industries, including agricultural fertilizers, electronic circuit boards, construction materials, and consumer goods like detergents and pharmaceuticals. With the growing demand of the specialty chemical market, the industry faces several unique challenges that could affect operations.Read More
In the petrochemical and refinery industries, operations must run safely and efficiently with controlled, real-time data. Plants can eliminate data imprecision by transitioning to a low-emission (Low-E) closed-loop gas and liquid sampling system. Low-e sampling, combined with proper staff training, can help maximize sampling accuracy while minimizing risks to people, equipment, and the environment.Read More
With aging equipment and facilities, operators face increasing challenges in maintaining equipment reliability, integrity, and safety. One of the biggest hidden threats to your plant’s efficient and safe operation is operating sampling systems as separate entities within the plant. This leaves plants open to gaps and potential risks in their sampling program and process.Read More
In the past, sophisticated online analysis for hydrocarbons was used only in laboratories – but now they’re widely used online at many upstream, midstream, and downstream hydrocarbon facilities.Read More
