In becoming the exclusive sales & service source for SpectraSensors gas analyzing technology in Canada, Endress+Hauser is filling a need for solutions-based approaches tailored to each application measuring contaminant levels in natural gas and gas processing operations, refineries and chemical plants.

As the customers’ single accountable point of contact, Endress+Hauser Canada will assist them in choosing the right SpectraSensors analyzer and choosing the proper sensitivity level to generate consistently accurate readings of analyte, such as moisture (H2O), hydrogen sulfide (H2S), carbon dioxide (CO2), oxygen (O2), acetylene (C2H2), ammonia (NH3) and gas composition. Customers will benefit from the factory-trained local resources of Endress+Hauser, training in state of the art Process Training Units, bilingual telephone support and onsite services (commissioning, maintenance and repair). Endress+Hauser can help customers incorporate the data stream from their analyzers into their IT infrastructure, including IIoT systems.

“The solutions-based approach pays off for our customers in both the short and long term,” says Jason Riegert, Analyzer Program Development Manager, Strategic Solutions & Services, at Endress+Hauser Canada. “Selecting, locating and installing the right analyzer, combined with providing know-how and support, assures that each customer can expect high accuracy in contaminant measurement over the lifespan of the equipment with the lowest cost of ownership of any possible solution.”

SpectraSensors analyzers employ three main optical technologies – TDLAS (tunable diode laser absorption spectroscopy), Quench Fluorescence and Raman Spectroscopy – to measure H2O, C2H2, NH3, H2S, CO2, O2, gas concentrations* in hydrocarbon gas applications. TDLAS was introduced to the natural gas industry by SpectraSensors more than a decade ago and has proven to be the most effective analytical technology for measuring contaminants, with the fastest response rate, and great durability. Unlike other measurement techniques, the analysis component of these three optical technologies – a beam of light – isn’t in direct contact with the gas and therefore doesn’t degrade. The rugged nature of these optical gas analyzers has allowed them to be used in natural gas pipelines with very little maintenance, no cross-interference, and with no detrimental effects from glycol, methanol, amine, H2S and more in the gas stream. They require no field recalibration, ever. Since its inception, this technology has demonstrated its reliability in thousands of installations worldwide. In addition, there is an expanding market for optical gas analyzers in crude refining, LNG liquefaction and petrochemical and fertilizer production.

Trace levels of H2O, H2S, CO2, and O2 in natural gas can corrode pipelines. Identifying levels of contaminants establishes how much processing is required to make it safe enough for pipeline transmission. For example, H2S levels at the wellhead may be over 100 parts per million (ppm), but that must be brought down below 4 ppm for delivery to a mainline pipeline. In Canada, most of the demand for gas analyzers is on an upstream gathering network at the entry point to an intermediate gas processing plant, then on the other side of the plant to measure the effectiveness of contaminant removal. The gas is analyzed again when it reaches the custody point of a mainline gas pipeline system to ensure it meets the regulatory standard for onward transmission.

One of Canada’s largest wastewater treatment plants at Annacis Island provides secondary treatment to approximately 175 billion litres of wastewater every year for over 1 million residents in 14 municipalities. After almost 20 years in operation, the variable frequency drives supporting the critical pumping systems for the primary treatment and secondary treatment facilities had to be replaced to ensure that the plant’s high operational availability and reliability will not be compromised in serving the plant, the surrounding municipalities and the environment. Metro Vancouver Regional District chose to deploy Rittal’s enclosure and power distribution solutions with E-plan software to efficiently support vital infrastructure improvements by reducing equipment replacement times and thereby minimizing risk to plant operations.


Emerson’s New Easy-to-deploy Monitoring Accelerates Asset Digitalization

Emerson MonitoringEmerson recently introduced the AMS Asset Monitor edge analytics device, which digitalizes essential asset data and analytics for better operations performance and improved decision making. AMS Asset Monitor provides actionable insights into essential assets that were previously monitored only with infrequent assessments. The new edge analytics device will connect with Emerson’s Plantweb Optics asset performance platform to provide key operations personnel with instant asset health details for operations and maintenance decision making.

Printing With Precision – Improving Existing High-Speed Equipment

JAE LogoThe Scenario

A high-speed printing company had partially completed an upgrade to their equipment. The printing machine used two alternating print heads to produce units at a rate of more than 11/s. Due to the nature of the product, speed, accuracy, and repeatability were extremely important. The process needed to be consistent as any defect would impact production further down the line.

To ensure there were no errors, the units would pass through a vision system designed to detect defects and other irregularities. A mechanical reject system would then remove any defected units from the line.

Important safety considerations for machine shop equipment

OmronIf not properly safeguarded, machine shop equipment is capable of seriously injuring an operator. Lathes, band saws and other simple machines can cut or even sever a finger or a limb. Due to the major potential for harm, it’s essential for manufacturers to comply with all mandated safety standards for the types of machines they employ.

What are the standards?

To get started with machine shop equipment safety compliance, manufacturers can look up the safety standards applicable to their region. In the United States, relevant standards are sorted into the following three categories:
