Wet stack gas analysis is a little known speciality of Process Instruments and this led to a remarkable second installation in Texas in July 2015.
Jonathan Cook travelled to San Antonio in Texas to commission a Pi GS1 Wet Stack Gas Analyser on a scrubber system installed at Capitol SkyMine.
The remarkable journey started two years ago when Contrologic from Thailand won a contract to supply to the Texan company. Having heard of Pi’s little known expertise in this area, Contrologic installed and Pi commissioned 2 Chlorine Wet Stack Gas Analysers on the plant in July of 2015.
Chlorine, Hydrogen Chloride, Hydrogen Fluoride and other acidic gases pose particular problems when being measured after a wet stack scrubber as they are extremely ‘sticky’ and corrosive.
Pi has developed expertise in this very specific method over 15 years and is occasionally called upon to solve particular problems as in this case.
