Raman instrumentation has a long history in downstream oil and gas production (i.e., refining). The HyperFlux™ PRO Plus Raman analyzer is a powerful, robust, and easy to use process with applications throughout the entire oil and gas production sector, be it upstream or downstream. The PRO Plus can help plug the gaps in analysis that a refinery has, bringing in-line and real-time measurement control to those applications that Raman or other techniques cannot effectively analyze.
Start optimizing your Oil & Gas production in real-time
Tornado Spectral Systems offers faster, non-destructive measurements of everything from olefins to aromatics, allowing you to control, predict, and optimize solutions for monitoring in the oil and gas sector. With Tornado’s HTVS™ technology, you can monitor the composition of your process streams to enable rapid, accurate and non-destructive online measurements.
Example applications for the HyperFlux™ PRO Plus in monitoring downstream oil & gas production and refining include:
- Motor Fuel Properties
- Olefins, aromatics, octane number (RON or MON), RVP
- Refinery Applications Distillation columns
- “Downstream”, e.g., xylenes, ammonia production Gas phase measurements
Tornado Raman spectroscopy analyzers facilitate the identification and quantization of compounds and can be very effective in monitoring and quantifying hydrocarbons in gas formations, hydrocarbon conversion processes and natural gas transmission. Raman spectroscopy is a highly selective and non-destructive optical spectroscopy technique that relies on laser light’s inelastic scattering to probe molecular structure. The non-destructive nature of Raman measurements and the spectra’ molecular specificity make it an optimal technique to monitor manufacturing processes in real-time. The use of Raman can facilitate process understanding and allow effective process control, thus helping minimize production errors.
