Petrochemical Industry

Safely storing liquids and chemicals is a continuous and ongoing effort in the Petrochemical Industry. Companies operating in this industry must deal with some of the unwanted effects that oxygen creates when present inside storage containers. Through a process called nitrogen blanketing, they inject this inert gas into the vapor space and effectively lower the concentration of oxygen. This in turns decreases the risk of fire, explosion, evaporation and structural corrosion.

Nitrogen blanketing is also widely used in:

  • Petroleum industry
  • Food and beverage industry
  • Pharmaceutical industry

To know how much nitrogen to continue adding to their containers and for how long, companies need a way to measure the concentration of oxygen in the vapor space while the process is taking place. Oxygen analyzers can serve as the ideal monitor for this application and help workers make the necessary adjustments to meet their concentration endpoint.

To be an effective monitor for this application, an oxygen analyzer must deliver quick and reliable measurements. This means that the analyzer needs to have an innovative design, contain breakthrough technology and utilize the best performing oxygen sensors on the market. AMI offers a complete line of high-performance oxygen analyzers that are built around our IP-protected Eliminator Cell Block™ and utilize oxygen sensors manufactured with Bullet Sensor Technology™ for superior performance and unmatched reliability. Our units are compact and extremely rugged for use in some of the harshest environments and available in both permanent mount and portable configurations. Several of our models have CSA approvals meeting: Class 1, Div. 1 Groups B,C,D requirements in a flammable gas stream.

If you are using nitrogen blanketing in your operations, an AMI oxygen analyzer can serve as your indispensable monitor to help you exert precise control over the composition of the vapor space inside your containers.
