The ethylene molecule consists of a double bond between carbon atoms and four hydrogen atoms bonded, two to each carbon atom. Per the Wikipedia Ethylene entry, it: …is widely used in the chemical industry, and its worldwide production (over 150 million tonnes in 2016[5]) exceeds that of any other organic compound.[6][7] Much of this production […]

For process manufacturers, the energy bill can up to 40-60% of the total operating budget. One way to optimize the energy expended is with Continuous Emissions Monitoring Systems (CEMS). Many people think of CEMS as something used for emissions regulatory reporting to help ensure certification and compliance with local and international regulatory agencies. But these […]

The combustion process leads to emissions which must be measured and reported to regulatory authorities in jurisdictions where process manufacturers and producers operate. Technologies such as Quantum Cascade Laser (QCL) and Tunable Diode Laser (TDL) are used to sense and analyze industrial gases and monitor emissions. Continuous gas analyzers that use the combination of these […]

Gas chromatographs (GCs) are used in natural gas custody transfer applications. They provide information on the gas quality and composition—with components such as methane, ethane and heavier hydrocarbons, water vapor, carbon dioxide, nitrogen and hydrogen sulfide. These gas chromatograph are normally located on large gas stations with dedicated buyer use. In a Pipeline & Gas […]

Storage tanks play a pivotal role in the supply chain from upstream oil & gas production through downstream petrochemical-based products. Separation of water from the hydrocarbon liquids during storage create the need for operations to remove and treat this water as it builds up over time. Emerson’s Ryo Hashimoto shared a story of an Asian […]
