ONSITE GAS CONTAMINANT MEASUREMENT ANALYSIS

KINSAJASA has been providing special services for on-line gas contaminant measurement and analysis to clients from Oil and Gas, chemical and petrochemical, power generation and downstream industries. Our services comprise of skilled, fully trained and competent Malaysian engineers that have years of experience in various filtration and separation systems applications in both offshore and onshore environments.

KINSAJASA perform single source on line audits for gas contaminants and on-site analysis for gas streams concerning fuels, natural gas, CO2, H2S, ammonia, compressed air etc. Our services applies field-proven and proprietary methods at clients live gas pipeline to identify, measure and quantify 3 main contaminant categories in gas streams: free liquid droplets carryover (slugs, foams, hydrocarbon), aerosols (fine particulate and liquid / hydrocarbon vapor), and solid particles (iron oxide, iron sulfide, elemental sulfur, sand etc).

THERE ARE BASICALLY 5 BENEFITS TO PROCESS OWNERS IF THEY APPLY ON-LINE AUDITS FOR GAS CONTAMINANTS:

  1. All filtration and separation systems were designed with a purpose: to remove unwanted species which we refer to as "contaminants". We often called to do performance verification, measuring contaminants upstream and downstream of filtration and separation systems such as KO vessels, gas scrubbers, slug catchers, mechanical separators, glycol dehydrators, heaters, gas coalescers, and gas conditioning skids.

  2. We are able to perform process troubleshooting; useful in determining whether a failure of a system was due to contaminants presence in the gas. SPS is frequently asked to determine the gas cleanliness level upstream of critical process systems such as turbo compressors, gas turbines, molecular sieve beds, mercury removal bed, AGRU, catalyst systems, dry gas seals and ultrasonic flow meters (metering station).

  3. Upon completing the field test and analysis of contaminants for a troubleshooting request, We will provide technical recommendations and solutions for client's "way forward".

  4. Normally in vendor-to-client supply process chain, the "design and supply" of filtration and separation systems ends right after the successful commissioning by supplier or vendor. In this situation, we are able to assist client in planning and carrying out a performance audit test for the new installation. This ensures a smoother future operational as the newly installed system performance will be audited within design specifications to verify operating guarantees.

  5. Performing on-line gas contaminants measurement and analysis will provide the best accurate analysis result. This is because the gas evaluation and analysis will be performed under the actual, live, gas process condition. Knowing the contaminants loading in gas stream and the gas properties itself varies at different gas pressure, temperature and flow rate, gas spot sampling suspected to alter all these process conditions, making the analysis result, especially on liquid carryover and aerosols, questionable and leads to assumptions.

KNOW THE CONTAMINANT BEFORE SPENDING VALUABLE CAPITAL FUNDS
The selection of filtration and separation equipment can be a difficult task. Filtration and separation companies offer numerous different technologies to handle different contaminants for different applications. The key word being "different". Contaminants and contaminant mixtures are almost always different. The key to selecting the optimum separation technology for a service is to have real data on the contaminant's volume, size, and physical characteristics. All too often, filtration and separation equipment is selected, purchased, and installed with very little known about the contaminant. The result often produces damaged downstream equipment and/or over budget operational cost due to poor performance. SPS was developed as an entity dedicated to providing the scientific data needed to make sound filtration and separation selection decisions.

GAS CLEANLINESS QUALIFICATION TESTING
Today's gas turbines and other critical gas systems are extremely sensitive to liquid, liquid aerosol, and solids contamination. Most manufacturers have developed gas cleanliness requirement specifications for fuel and feed gas streams. The SPS "Total Contaminant Analysis System", using different testing protocols, provides the scientific data needed to qualify gas streams for use with contaminant sensitive equipment.
