Optical measurement systems typically require that the sample undergo some conditioning to make it fit for the analyzer’s method. Applied Analytics’ systems are built for direct analysis without cooling/drying the sample. This allows us to build far simpler, more elegant sample conditioning systems that retain high sample integrity and optimal response time.
In our experience, applications can be similar but are rarely identical. That is why we always work from the process realities to the drawing board, building custom sample conditioning for each project.
The 'standard' extractive SCS is built for optimal response speed and automated sampling functionality.
Designed to strip out the desired component from opaque liquid streams. N2 or air stripping gas enters from the bottom of an absorption column and carries away the measured component to the flow cell to be measured in the gas phase.
This system is mounted directly onto a short-flanged stem welded to the stack. It uses a sintered metal probe (detailed in a separate line item) to draw the sample.
Multiplexed systems use automated stream switching to alternate which sample stream is entering the flow cell for analysis. This allows you to compound the value of the system by monitoring multiple analysis points with a single unit.
Our systems destined for offshore environments are housed in rugged enclosures to withstand harsh maritime conditions.
The sour gas system is designed to handle ultra-corrosive gas with up to 100% H2S.
The water sampler is customized per the specification of the water, whether pondwater, cooling water, or otherwise.
The Teflon system uses wetted parts suited to demanding applications where steel wetted parts are not suitable.
The total sulfur sample conditioning system is designed to pyrolyze incoming natural gas, converting all sulfur bearing compounds to SO2. To effectively perform this task in a continuous, online manner, the sample conditioning system includes the following functionality; gas filtration, pressure regulation, auto zero gas introduction and manual span introduction. The sample conditioning system is designed with user safety in mind. As such, the control electronics are housed separately and kept way from the high temperature furnace.
The Process Sampler is designed to transport sample from the process to another destination such as a laboratory for further examination. The process sampler is designed with one valve handle to control the filling and venting of the sample cylinder to achieve the correct pressure for the sample. Quick connects on the top and bottom of the sample cylinder allow for easy removal of the cylinder from the panel.
The Natural Gas Sample Conditioning System in conjunction with the OMA analyzer quantifies contaminates and odorants in natural gas at all stages of production and distribution.
This portable sampling system is an example of the customized nature of AAI sampling systems which are built to the needs of the customer. Sample conditioning components were housed in a briefcase enclosure for a rugged and portable solution.
