Michell’s new moisture analyser for catalytic reforming processes

AMS Instrumentation and Calibration announces a new version of Michell Instruments’ QMA601 process
moisture analyser featuring a novel option that makes it suitable for
continuous catalyst regeneration (CCR) reforming processes.

Michell’s updated QMA601
moisture analyser delivers fast response and stable measurements, providing
operators with reliable moisture control over longer periods without the need
for frequent maintenance despite the aggressive application.

A moisture analyser
is a necessary part of CCR reforming processes to ensure that the desired
moisture levels remain constant; however, the presence of hydrochloric acid compromises
sensors, increasing the maintenance cost for the operator. To prevent this, Michell
engineers developed an updated version of the QMA601, which further extends the
life of the QCM moisture sensor, helping increase the cost-efficiency of the moisture
analyser in the CCR application.

Additionally, a new
sample system option includes a valve isolating the sample to the sensor while
allowing a filter drain/ bypass flow to continue to purge through the sample
line.

A well-established
technology, QCM is often specified for gas and petrochemical processing
applications. Michell’s QMA601 process moisture analyser uses the latest
generation of this technology, which gives it a lower detection limit of
0.1ppmV and an upper range of 2000ppmV.

Michell’s process
moisture instruments are designed for simple installation, use and maintenance.
Key advantages of the QMA601 process moisture analysers include a full-colour
touch-screen interface allowing in situ interrogation and operation with no
need for a hot works permit; all data logging and readings easily visible; main
display also incorporating real-time trend graphing and alarm indicators; and fully
certified for use in hazardous areas around the world, with accreditations from
ATEX, IECEx and cCSAus.
