One analyser for all vapour pressure applications

Aug 06 2018 Read 676 Times

In this competitive world, refiners need to use all the latest optimisation and product control techniques available. Reliable online physical property analysers are a vital component in the effort to reach those objectives because they measure directly vital quality parameters in the process. Vapour pressure is an indicator of a liquid’s evaporation rate and relative to the tendency of volatile components to escape from the liquid. To ensure the safe storage and transportation of petroleum products, whilst minimising the impact on the environment and assuring that combustion engines are functioning properly it is vital to measure the vapour pressure.

The BARTEC BENKE RVP-4 Vapour Pressure Process Analyser measures the vapour pressure of a variety of petroleum products. This unit features an ASTM compliant cylinder piston design with 4:1 expansion, an integral temperature control unit and network and fieldbus communication. Due to its advanced design it can be used for gasoline applications as well as for high pressure applications such as LPG. In addition, it is for applications for viscous samples such as crude oil without the need to implement extra wash cycles. It is also possible to measure vapour pressure at different temperatures for instance; True Vapour Pressure (TVP) for storage tank applications.
