SPECTRO Pittcon Introduction New On Line Sulfur Analyzer That is Ideal for Viscous Hydrocarbons

Monday, March 1, 2004

Robust turnkey system is designed to meet the demands of pipeliners and blenders.

Austin, TX – March 8, 2004. SPECTRO Analytical Instruments, a leading global supplier of X-ray Fluorescence analyzers, has introduced a new on-line sulfur analyzer designed to measure viscous hydrocarbon in crude lines, pipelines, terminals, and blending operations. The new 682T-HP system is faster, more sensitive and more compact than previous systems and provides continuous, reliable detection of sulfur at pressures up to 800 psig. It can operate either as a stand-alone analyzer or can be tied in to plant-wide automation systems to provide real-time strategic measurements.

Among the key features of the new analyzer are a fully integrated densitometer, automatic density compensation, touch-screen controls, password protected screens, and rapid update rates as frequent as one per second.

Operation of the analyzer is regulated by an integral PLC. The PLC monitors instrument parameters such as process temperature, density, and system diagnostics. It also provides a comprehensive suite of alarms and a standard platform for communicating to a plant-wide DCS. Due to its unique design and robust construction, the system has minimal, if any, sample conditioning and recovery requirements.
