Gas chromatographs (GCs) are used in natural gas applications to measure the hydrocarbon components. The heavier natural gas liquids beyond butane and pentane are referred to as C6+ hydrocarbons. Gas chromatographs performing C6+ analysis are used by hydrocarbon processing facilities when high-quality product specifications are required or when rigid custody transfer standards are needed in […]

There once was a time for industrial manufacturers when they received fairly homogeneous supplies of natural gas that did not vary much in energy content. Here in the U.S. with the rapid increase in shale gas production as part of the overall energy mix, there is more variance. In a Power magazine article, Gas Chromatographs […]

Measure tank levels can be challenging based on many factors including liquid composition, tank geometry, fill/empty rates, etc. And, if measuring levels on marine vessel tanks, there is added complexity with this non-stationary environment. I saw a LinkedIn post from Emerson’s Bert Konings about the complexities of level measurements in marine environments. In it, he […]

The cement-making process involves quarrying raw materials such as limestone, sand and clay and then crushing these materials and others into small pieces in a series of stages. Rotary cement kilns heat these materials along other materials such as iron ore or fly ash. The high heat removes elements that are turned into gasses and […]
