Fluorinated by-products in alkylate process streams are inevitable because of their use in the processing of C3 – C5 alkylates. They must however be removed before further processing, as elevated levels may result in corrosion and/or catalyst poisoning, leading to – very – expensive repairs and downtime. OI’s Fluorinated By-products Analyzer handles the analysis of these compounds in as little as 2 – 3 minutes, based on OI’s ELCD detector
The analyzer comes in two versions, one for on-line and one for laboratory use.
This version is installed on-line in the process stream and produces automatically results every 2 – 3 minutes. Sampling valve is supplied by the customer. The Class I Division II housing of the analyzer allows for installation close to the process streams.
The off-line version of the FBA is based on a rebuilt Agilent 7890® GC with an integrated liquid sampling valve, again the total analysis time is around 2 – 3 min.
Common to both analyzers are the detection by the OI ELCD detector, which has a Fluorine quantification range from 50ppb to around 100ppm.
We will of course ensure that you at installation will be thoroughly taught in the use of the system. We do also have the possibility to supply extra courses in the use of the system. We also support your organisation with different levels of PM maintenance.
