- Measurement close to the process sample point
- Simplified sample systems
- Custom analyzer shelter / building not required
- Toxic or combustible process fluid not transported back to a space where people are expected to work
The combination of the above benefits can provide better measurement, reduced maintenance (operating costs), reduced capital investment and improved safety for process monitoring in gas plants, refineries and chemical plants. Here's how !
Taking the measurement out to the process point has some great potential advantages. The first is that the cell or measurement point (it could be a fiber coupled probe) will often operate at the same conditions as are in the process pipe. By that, I mean the same temperature, pressure and phase (be it gas or liquid). This is important...
