Recently 360°KAS was awarded for the supply of two UV analyzers, model OMA-300, for a FPSO project within a major oil company. 360°KAS is the exclusive solution partner for the sale and service of Applied Analytics products in Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg (BeNeLux).
The purpose of the analyzers is to measure BTEX (Benzene, Toluene, Ethylbenzene and Xylene) in the gas outlet of the slug catchers of this FPSO. BTEX should be removed as much as possible to prevent freezing in the cryogenic section. The analyzer measures the sum of the hydrocarbons at 254 nm. Fiber optic cables carry the signal to/from opposite ends of the sample flow cell, which is the only wetted part of the analyzer assembly. The system is suitable for gaseous and liquid samples. The housing of the analyzers for this off-shore project will be 316SS.
