Mercury Determination in the Petroleum Industry

Nov 30 2016 Read 1679 Times

For over 30 years P S Analytical has been at the forefront of trace mercury (Hg) determinations from petrochemical samples. Employing Atomic Fluorescence as a means of detection the PSA analysers provide ultimate detection performance. It has never been more important to understand the fate of Hg in all aspects of oil and gas exploration, refining and production. The corrosive nature of Hg reacting with aluminium; the fate of Hg within a process itself; the concentration of Hg in feedstocks that could destroy expensive catalysts; as well as the OH&S concerns that Hg poses are, of course, well documented and are often a key driver in operational decisions. For these reasons much effort is spent on Hg removal technology and PSA partners with many companies to monitor and help manage this Hg removal process. This partnership happens from the research bench through to production with PSA taking a pivotal role in ensuring successful removal technologies are deployed in the real world. 

PSA have analysers to suit all aspects of the monitoring and analysis of Hg, including laboratory instruments and on-line and off-line analysers for gases and liquids, routinely tailoring systems to customer requirements. PSA also provides solutions for speciation (fractionation) analysis and also waste water systems associated with petrochemical processes.

The systems offer industry leading detection performance, are simple to operate and maintain and are backed by our global commitment to service and support.

PSA offers the ideal package of experience, performance, reliability and support.
