Easy and reliable salt in crude analysis comparable to ASTM D3230

Aug 06 2018 Read 857 Times

Salt in crude measurements are made to define the level of chloride based salts found in samples in weight per volume. In some parts of the world, salt levels in crude oil are far higher than in others. This crude will still need transportation and refining but high levels of salt will cause problems if left untreated. De-salting technology has been readily available for many years, but to be effective there is a need for quick and reliable measurements of salt concentration. The fast response of an on-line analyser enables the operator to use De-salters as efficiently as possible.

Bartec ORB’s fully automatic, Model P-600 Salt in Crude Analyser is a highly reliable solution to this predicament. This ATEX Zone 1 rated analyser conforms to the ASTM D3230 standard electrometric method for salts in crude oil. This is achieved with the use of a digitally controlled syringe sample handling system, micro-volume solenoid valves and a measurement chamber with a high-resolution conductivity probe, stirrer and precise, bi-directional cell temperature control.

With its analysis cycle of 6 minutes, operators are assured of relevant, reliable and recent measurements. The P-600 performs at variable measurement ranges of up to 400 PTB (0-1,000 mg/L) with a repeatability of 2% of scale. Operators also appreciate the analyser’s ease-of-use and low solvent consumption.
