AMETEK Process Instruments

Petroleum refiners will need to comply with new Environmental Protection Agency flare stack combustion rules by January 2019, making it necessary for operators to accurately determine the heat values of flare stack gases. The ProMaxion quadrupole process mass spectrometer from AMETEK Process Instruments may offer a solution. During a field demonstration the ProMaxion was set up to monitor and quantify 16 components in the flare gas stream, including H2, N2, methane, ethane, propane, n-butane, i-butane and pentanes, among others. According to the company, the ProMaxion was able to obtain a calculation in less than 10 seconds, which was over 10 times faster than using a chromatograph.
