ISA Expo 2003: Siemens shows on-line process gas chromatograph

Houston, TX—Siemens Energy & Automation (Alpharetta, GA) is exhibiting its Maxum II on-line process gas chromatographs, which can be used in single- or dual-oven applications, allowing airbath or energy saving airless heating methods; and in parallel chromatography, which simplifies and accelerates a complex application into several simple measurements.

Houston, TX— Siemens Energy & Automation (Alpharetta, GA) is exhibiting its Maxum II on-line process gas chromatographs, which can be used in single- or dual-oven applications, allowing airbath or energy saving airless heating methods; and in parallel chromatography, which simplifies and accelerates a complex application into several simple measurements.Siemens is exhibiting at Booth #1949 at ISA Expo.

Siemens is also showing its Fidamat flame ionization continuous gas analyzer, which measures highly reactive and volatile organic carbons (HR-VOC), and reduce them to achieve levels required by the Texas Commission of Environmental Quality. The commission’s mandate requires reduction of emissions from vents, fugitive emissions and flare and cooling water towers. In particular, flare and cooling water tower emissions call for the on-line measurement of specific HR-VOCs and total VOCs in a continuous manner. Siemens estimates that nearly 140 plants, with an estimated 300 flares and 180 cooling towers, are affected in a 1,000-square-mile area. Because of the many hydrocarbon processing plants in that Houston-Galveston region, Siemens reports that Texas regulations will require validated performance of all analytical instruments by the end of 2004.

Siemens adds that the potential market for HR-VOC measurement systems is approximately $30 million. 'We predict the market may be even bigger in the next few years as the Beaumont-Port Arthur, Dallas-Forth Worth and El Paso areas prepare to meet the requirements,' says Ulrich Gokeler, Siemens’ product manager.
