While Laser Induced Fluorescence works brilliantly for crude oils, condensates require excitation wavelengths of lower wavelengths. For these applications the Advanced Sensors Deep UV Fluorescence technology as used in the EX and SA 500 series excels in condensate measurement.
Oil platforms generate produced water and this must be managed. For every country there are regulations setting limits on the amount of hydrocarbons than can be disposed of overboard and a range of different lab techniques that can be used for reporting this amount. An on-line fluorescence analyser can provide continuous measurement of the oil concentrations in the discharge water.
The EX-1000 from Advanced Sensors is a side stream analyser which not only can provide you with extremely accurate results, but can cater for changes in the size of oil droplets using the homogenisation effect of its ultrasonics. Using the built in spectrometer, the EX-1000 can detect changes in the oil type and the presence of chemicals that also fluoresce, ensuring that you have as complete a picture as possible.
As the volume of your discharge water increases, you need a system that will meet your changing demands, work reliably and with minimal operator input required. Having provided hundreds of low maintenance systems worldwide, Advanced Sensors is well placed to help you.
