Model 20 Hydrocarbon Analyzer -
FID Single Channel, Oven Heated Total Hydrocarbon Analyzer

Model 20 Hydrocarbon Analyzer

The VIG Industries, Inc. Model 20 is a microprocessor based, oven heated total hydrocarbon analyzer designed for high accuracy, sensitivity and stability. The Model 20 is designed to continuously measure one point.

The Model 20 utilizes a flame ionization detector (FID). The FID, sample filter, all sample lines, solenoid valves, pump head, capillaries, and other components that come in contact with the sample are maintained in a temperature-controlled heated oven to prevent condensation, and to provide repeatable, reliable performance in the analysis of a wide varieties of hydrocarbon concentrations in gaseous mixtures or in ambient air.

Applications

  • Compliance Monitoring - US EPA Method 25A
  • Process Monitoring - Continuous monitoring and alarm or control of:
    • Process gas streams utilizing organic solvents
    • Crude oil
    • Other chemicals containing hydrocarbons
  • Efficiency Monitoring - Monitoring effluent of volatile organic compound (VOC) reduction equipment for:
    • Environmental compliance
    • Efficiency control of incinerators (Thermal or catalytic)
    • Scrubbers
    • Carbon absorbers
    • Other abatement equipment
  • Safety Monitoring - Lower explosive limit (LEL) monitoring and/or control of:
    • Ovens/dryers
    • Fugitive emissions monitoring
    • Personnel work area monitoring
    • Leak detection of process equipment or solvent storage areas.
  • Stack Monitoring
