This process gas chromatograph is fast

By Chemical Engineering |

A relatively small shift in the cut point (the threshold temperature for good product) for any petroleum-refinery product can cost refiners millions of dollars in profits. In the absence of fast, accurate and reproducible boiling point data, refinery product Screen Shot 2017-05-23 at 9.49.46 AMyields are not optimized and profits are lost. The PGC5009 “Fast” process gas chromatograph, which was launched last month, provides process analytics for simulated distillation analysis using fast temperature-programmed process chromatography. With a patented resistively heated column design and rapid cooling system, the PGC5009 provides the retention times and weight percentage measurements required for boiling-point curves, enabling optimized process controls, says the company. — ABB Measurement & Analytics, Lewisburg, W.V.
