Heat Exchanger and Cooling Towers

Cooling towers at plant

Since 1984, ASI has worked with refineries, chemical and gas processing plants and other industries world wide. Analytical Systems KECO was established in 1984 employing staff with over 40 years of analytical experience providing field proven liquid and gas phase on-line continuous process analyzers to the gas processing, pipeline, refining, chemical, offshore platforms, shipping vessels, petrochemical and water processing industries worldwide. Many ASTM methods, patents, and exclusive features are utilized with our analyzers.

Water analyzer at industrial facility

Application:
Heat Exchanger and Cooling Towers

Product Type:
Model 204-V-VOC in Water Analyzer

Goal:

This ethylene plant had two goals: to prevent the loss of their product; and to save hundreds of thousands of dollars by early detection of hydrcarbon leaks in the water of heat exchanger / cooling towers.

Results:

1) Saved the client hundreds of thousands of dollars of lost product by early leak detection in heat exchangers.

2) At a level of 2 PPB, the client was able to take corrective action and benzene concentration began to decrease.

3) A typical cooling tower with 10 PPM by weight hydrocarbon content will emit 15,000 lbs/day lost product at 1,500 million lbs/day flow rate.

4) The TCEQ government environmental regulating body determined that this installation conforms to “Best Available vControl Technology” (BACT).
