Process analyser technology for the biofuel, oil, gas, petroleum, petrochemical, and refining sectors
Jun 17 2022
BARTEC are globally renowned for providing their customers in the biofuel, oil and gas, petroleum, refining and petrochemical sectors with cutting-edge process technology solutions. BARTEC’s analyser technology ensures that the end-user has vital process parameters immediately on hand to enable them to optimise their processes and achieve the requisite production quality, compliant to the plethora of local and international standards.
BARTEC offer a state-of-the-art range of vertically integrated online analysers, sample systems and enclosures. They also collaborate with their customers when creating new solutions and setting new standards with their existing analysers. The customers’ needs are BARTEC’s primary focus; they configure their analysers to match the individual end-user’s specific process requirements and walk the customer through their project from start to finish.
World class service for process analyser users
After close to half a century of working alongside customers in some of the most demanding process applications on the planet, BARTEC have built a world-class team of specialists who are on hand to ensure that the customers plants are operationally reliable throughout the installation and beyond. They understand that, however complex the project, the show must go on – and the plant needs to continue to operate as seamlessly as possible. BARTEC also organise regular training sessions to ensure that the end-user gets the most from their investment and are regularly updated when new standards or regulations are introduced. BARTEC’s comprehensive documentation and service hotline offers further peace-of-mind.
Process analysers for liquids
BARTEC’s online-analysers provide the relevant process parameters reliably and precisely to enable optimum process management at their customer’s plants. With BARTEC’s analysers end-users are rest-assured that the end-product is compliant with the necessary standards and product-related specifications.
Their process analyser range includes cold filter plugging point process analyser (CFPP-4), distillation process analysers (DPA-4), flash point process analyser (FPA-4), freezing/cloud point process analyser (FRP-4/CPA-4), pour point process analyser (PPA-4), Reid vapour pressure process analyser (RVP-4), viscosity process analyser (VISC-4) and viscosity index process analysers (VI-4). BARTEC is also highly mindful of the need to comply with stringent environmental regulations across the globe and they are also leading developers of process analytical technology for biofuels.
Ensuring safety and security and cyber-protection of process analysers
BARTEC have also made their analysers totally compliant with standards for non-electrical apparatus used in explosive atmospheres. They can fulfil complete process analytical upgrades, replacing instruments and providing highly advanced cyber protection for their devices. When working with BARTEC, customers can look to the future with justified assurance that all eventualities are covered. End users will work with precise and dependable analysers that come with protection from cyber-attacks, a criteria that has become more and more of a necessity in these turbulent times.
Process humidity measurement technology for refineries and plants
For decades, BARTEC have been a leading provider of precision instrumentation for measuring absolute humidity in gas in installations with extremely high temperature or high levels of dust in the atmosphere; their analysers have been built to provide accuracy, reproducibility and long-term stability in the harshest conditions industry has to offer.
The BARTEC Benke HYGROPHIL® HCDT monitors hydrocarbon dew point continuously and is ubiquitous at natural gas installations worldwide. Their Hygrophil® F 5673 offers a well-proven solution for determining trace moisture in gases and in liquids. BARTEC also offer solutions to measure humidity in pure hydrogen or natural gas mixtures with hydrogen.
Maintaining temperature control of process analysis
Keeping constant ambient and production temperatures is very important for maintaining precise process analysis, so a reliable cooling system is a vital component of any process analytical instrument. BARTEC provide highly reliable cooling systems, both customised and standard in a variety of power ratings – these systems consist of chillers for cooling liquids or products, wall-mounted air conditioning and custom-made HVAC units.
A complete process analysis system – all from one source
BARTEC also provide the all-important enclosures to house their Ex-protected analysers, which need protection against changing weather conditions (extreme climates from desert to long periods of frost). They can provide customised solutions for projects of all scales and sizes, from new or integrated into existing processes. The end-user can access everything needed from a single source: BARTEC’s analysers, sample conditioning systems, fast loop systems, cooling systems, recovery tanks and instrument enclosers.
BARTEC will be exhibiting at the Biofuels International Conference in Brussels on July 5-6 at booth 10 and ACHEMA in Frankfurt on 22 – 26 August, in Hall 11.1, booth E76.
