Total Hydrocarbon Analyser

Total Hydrocarbon Analyzer

Designed to continuously and accurately monitor Total hydrocarbon concentration during well logging and carbon bed detection.

About

The Measuresoft Total Hydrocarbon Analyzer (THA) is the candidate of choice whenever accurate, reliable total hydrocarbon analysis is required. The THA has a range from 10 ppm to 100% methane. The analyzer has a generous complement of analog and logic output capabilities.

The analyzer is based on a flame ionization detector (FID). During the combustion process, organic or hydrocarbon-based gases in the sample are ionized, then detected by the instrument and reported as a concentration in units.

The instrument is calibrated to ensure accuracy of +/- 5%, and is stable to within +/- 1% of full scale.

Applications

Designed to continuously monitor the total hydrocarbon content of non-condensing gases in a variety of applications, such as:

- Carbon bed breakthrough detection
- Well logging
