The moisture analyser is suitable for installation in hazardous areas and operates over a wide range of environmental conditions.
Aurora emits fast response alerts and documents when moisture concentrations are out of compliance. Once process upsets are corrected and the gas dries out, the fast response enables natural gas to be cleared for entry into the energy grid.
GE’s experience in moisture measurement includes aluminium oxide, polymer capacitance and chilled mirror sensors. The company’s heritage also includes the development of the first injection diode laser in 1962 by Dr Robert Hall in Schenectady, New York in the United States. The compact and inexpensive diode laser led to the development of compact discs, laser printers and fibre optic telecommunications.
The new Aurora TDLAS hygrometer enables natural gas processing and transportation facilities to monitor moisture content in real time with high precision and reliability.Article continues below…
The analyser is designed to continuously monitor the moisture content in natural gas. It measures the partial pressure of water vapour and, with the simultaneous measurement of pressure and temperature, the Aurora provides all of the commonly used moisture units, including:
- Volume ratio in parts per million by volume
- Absolute humidity in pounds per million standard cubic feet or milligrams per cubic metre
- Dew point temperature in °C or °F
- Pressure dew point in °C or °F.
