New gas analyser combines accuracy with field serviceability

SpectraSensors has released its J22 TDLAS gas analyser.
This new product, from the Endress+Hauser company, announces the release addresses multiple issues with traditional technologies used for the measurement of moisture content in natural gas, while providing additional benefits.
Today’s natural gas market is more complex than ever, with an unprecedented range of supply sources and overall gas composition variability.
Gas suppliers, pipeline operators, and industrial users must accommodate unexpected changes in heating value and contaminant levels by using analysers to verify characteristics throughout the supply chain.
One very critical contaminant must be monitored continuously - H2O. The presence of water content in liquid or gas can cause corrosion in a pipeline or other assets. Moisture and other acids can combine to cause severe asset degradation.
The J22 moisture analyser combines Endress+Hauser’s and SpectraSensors’ more than two decades of experience producing tunable diode laser analysers with the latest advancements in data analysis, internal diagnostics, multi-functional enclosures, and web server connectivity.
The analyser can replace traditional electrochemical sensors, such as aluminum oxide, phosphorus pentoxide, quartz crystal microbalance, and chilled mirror.
The analyser has a built-in web server, with connectivity provided to a laptop or other device via an Ethernet cable. This functionality allows operators to find further detail through information screens and verification reports, the latter provided in PDF format.
