Natural Gas Solutions
Natural gas is an important part of the world’s energy supply. From feedstock for production processes to generating electrical power, the transportation, distribution, storage, and processing of natural gas has a global impact.
Natural gas must meet specific requirements as it relates to heating value, hydrocarbon dew point, and the concentration of various contaminants. The quality of natural gas can be impacted by contaminants, such as water vapor, sulfur-based compounds, heavier hydrocarbons, and carbon dioxide. These contaminants adversely affect the natural gas heating content, promote the formation of acids that damage mechanical infrastructure, and facilitate hydrate formation which limits gas flow in pipelines. All of these can result in damage to key components, increase maintenance costs, and cause unplanned downtime.
With over 50 years of experience in natural gas measurement technology, AMETEK Process Instruments can provide the optimal analyzer solutions for the measurement of moisture, sulfur (as hydrogen sulfide), carbon dioxide, hydrocarbon dew point temperature, oxygen, gas composition, heating value, and specific gravity. Once our analyzers are installed, our global team of field service engineers provides local support for start-up, commissioning, and maintenance.
We serve applications across the natural gas value chain, including:
- Gas dehydration
- Gas sweetening
- Custody transfer
- Transmission pipelines
- Underground storage
- Hydrocarbon processing (LPG & NGL recovery)
- LNG production
Our analyzers are considered the industry-standard, and are known for high reliability. Our technical sales and service teams provide strong applications and
service expertise to ensure the right solution is engineered to meet the needs of
