Revolutionary analyser for natural gas quality monitoring

Dec 14 2022

ABB has launched a new solution for natural gas quality monitoring called the Sensi+ analyser. The device simplifies and reduces the cost of pipeline operation and maintenance by enabling safer, easier, and more efficient monitoring and operations through a single device that can analyse up to three contaminants (H2S, H2O, CO2) in any natural gas stream accurately and in real time. Its fast response also enables quick reaction to process upsets, helping to reduce waste and methane emissions.

Mitigating the risk and effects of natural gas contaminants can often present a challenge to natural gas pipeline operators, process industries and natural gas utilities, with companies required to manage numerous technologies and devices to obtain a complete analysis. This legacy approach is complex, failure-prone, and expensive. Traditionally, each contaminant has often required a separate analyser, maintenance schedule, and specific skill set to operate, validate, and service.

The new Sensi+ analyser also helps customers to meet custody transfer requirements, minimize internal corrosion in system infrastructure, and prevent physical damage to mission-critical assets. It requires about six times less sample flowrate for its measurement than other technologies, reducing the total carbon emission of the analyser and natural gas wasting in the atmosphere. This reflects ABB’s commitment towards enabling a low-carbon society by helping to reduce carbon emissions and support sustainable operations in key industries.

The Sensi+ analyser includes ABB’s AnalyzerExpert features that provide experts with actions and insights directly from the device. Capabilities include built-in self-diagnostics, automated laser line-locking, real-time cross-interference compensation, and health monitoring. The hazardous area compliant analyser needs only a simple wall mount installation and process tie-in without complex system purging. Following installation and validation, the analyser will deliver fast and reliable measurements in the field without calibration.
