Michell Instruments supplied three OptiPEAK TDL600 moisture analysers to
a natural gas processing plant in the USA. The UK-based instrumentation and
sensing manufacturer had won a bid to customise and supply the sampling systems
to the plant.
Working closely with the plant operator, Michell’s systems engineering
department designed a customised sampling system to meet the specific
requirements of the application. The sampling system needed to have extra
filtration to avoid dust carryover from the molecular sieve beds as well as
additional safety features to protect the analysers in the event of high
Utilising the latest developments in laser spectroscopy, the OptiPEAK
TDL600 offers market-leading of ±1% of the reading or 1ppmV verified by
calibration traceable to NPL (UK) and NIST (US).
Key features of Michell’s OptiPEAK TDL600 moisture analysers include lower
detection limit of 1ppmV making it one of the most sensitive and reliable instruments
in its class on the market; and unique laser lock system ensuring the laser
remains locked to the correct water absorption signal, maintaining a high
integrity measurement at all times.
