38 Measurement and Testing The First Gas Purity Analyser Measuring up to 12 Components Simultaneously -
Reduces Costs, Enhances Speed and Accuracy Launched Rosemount™ CT5800 is industry’s first Quantum Cascade Laser with Class I, Division 2 hazardous area certification in a flameproof enclosure
To establish purity and optimise process control in industrial processing applications such as ethylene, natural gas and hydrogen manufacturing, Emerson Automation Solutions today announced the Rosemount™ CT5800 continuous gas analyser. The CT5800 is the first Quantum Cascade Laser (QCL) analyser designed for industrial process applications requiring Class I, Division 2 hazardous area certification built within a flameproof enclosure.
The CT5800 analyser’s unique cell design enables high-accuracy measurement of concentrations of impurities down to low ppm levels in the gas streams with exceptional linearity of response and repeatability, and incorporates up to six laser modules housed inside the same enclosure. The CT5800 analyser can measure up to 12 components simultaneously, greatly reducing the need for multiple analysers. In addition, the CT5800 has no consumables and calibration is seldom required, keeping cost of operation low.
Like all analysers in the CT5000 family, the CT5800 combines tunable diode laser (TDL) and quantum cascade laser technologies within the same analyser. The system uses a patented ‘laser chirp’ to provide near-instant high-resolution spectroscopy to detect and identify a range of molecules in both the near- and mid-infrared range of spectroscopic light with an enhanced dynamic range from sub ppm to percent levels.
“In ethylene manufacturing and natural gas processing for example, establishing the purity of the gas is essential to meeting contractual requirements as well as maintaining process optimisation and safety. Operators need to perform this analysis as accurately as possible – without wasting time or money,” said Amanda Gogates, product manager for Rosemount Quantum Cascade Laser Analyzers, Emerson Automation Solutions. “The CT5800 provides increased levels of measurement accuracy while allowing multiple components to be analysed simultaneously. Fast analysis time, as low as five seconds in some applications, ensures timely delivery of critical information for process monitoring and control. At the same time, the hazardous certification assures the analyser can be used in even the harshest and most threatening environments.”

Aquisition of Norwegian Company with Advanced Chemical Injection Technology Strengthen Yokogawa’s Solutions Targeting the Oil
For More Info, email: email:
and Gas Upstream and Midstream Sectors Yokogawa Electric Corporation announces the acquisition of TechInvent2 AS, a Norwegian enterprise that holds the rights to FluidCom™, a chemical injection metering valve (CIMV). FluidCom prevents blockages and corrosion in oil wells, pipelines, and other facilities and employs a patented technology for thermal control. It incorporates the functions of a mass flowmeter, control valve, and valve controller and has very few moving parts.

FluidCom has already been delivered to several international oil and gas majors. With TechInvent2 joining the Yokogawa Group, Yokogawa will now target delivery of this solution to the oil and gas upstream and midstream sectors, thereby helping to improve operational efficiency, reduce operational costs, and enhance health, safety and the environment (HSE).
Based on its Transformation 2017 mid-term business plan, Yokogawa will continue to focus on the oil and gas industries, and will strive to strengthen its solutions targeting the upstream and midstream sectors, in addition to its forte downstream sector businesses. Following its April 2016 acquisition of KBC Advanced Technologies, a provider of consulting services that are based on its own advanced oil and gas simulation technologies, the company has been striving to work with its customers to create value through the provision of solutions that address every aspect of their business activities.
At oil wells and pipelines, efforts to ensure a secure oil flow path (flow assurance) play an important role in maintaining production efficiency. The adherence of various chemical substances to the inside walls of a pipe can reduces its internal diameter and causes corrosion. To prevent the accumulation of substances and corrosion, certain chemicals must be injected in the pipes. Improving the efficiency of this process is a major challenge in the upstream and midstream sectors.
Chemical injection valves have traditionally been manually operated in the upstream sector, although there are cases where chemical injection has been automated using an actuated solution. In the former case, the valves must be frequently opened, closed, and adjusted by plant personnel. This is costly as it necessitates the hiring of additional staff, and it is work that must be done under very harsh environmental conditions in the field.
It is also a well-known problem that inaccurate and unstable dosing of chemicals leads to additional operational costs and challenges with specific processes. To address and resolve such problems, there is an increasing demand for integrated automatic injection solutions that perform stably and offer a high level of precision in the dosing.
FluidCom’s CIMV has a unique design which is based on a patented technology, providing integrated flow control and metering using a unique combination of material and thermal effects. FluidCom is a fully automated and reliable device with a simple design that performs autonomous valve control and continuous flow metering. The device is able to stably inject chemicals in the required small amounts. It has few moving parts and has proven to be an accurate, reliable solution for the control of chemical injection applications. No regular maintenance is required and remote control features are provided.
The device features a self-cleaning mechanism that reduces maintenance workload, and the automatic injection of chemicals in the correct amounts eliminates the need for manual interventions by plant operators and maintenance workers, thereby enabling personnel to lessen their exposure to harsh environmental conditions in the field. Chemical injection valves have traditionally been operated as manual systems in the upstream sector under harsh conditions. The FluidCom can automate chemical injection operation and reduce times that plant operators and maintenance workers go to field and operate in harsh environments. So using FuidCom improves healthy and safety.
FluidCom is also a valuable solution for downstream operations, where corrosion prevention is always a pressing concern. An ISA100 Wireless™ version is planned. The ISA100 Wireless™ technology is based on the ISA100.11a standard. It includes ISA100.11a-2011 communications, an application layer with process control industry standard objects, device descriptions and capabilities, a gateway interface, infrared provisioning, and a backbone router.
Commenting on the acquisition of this company, Shigeyoshi Uehara, head of Yokogawa’s IA Products and Service Business Headquarters, says:
