Syngas-related industries

Optical-based gas composition measurements for enhanced simplicity and safety.

The Optograf Raman based analyser, developed and manufactured by Kaiser Optical Systems, Inc, measures gas composition to optimize process unit efficiencies during the production of industrial chemicals for industries that make or use syngas as a process intermediate.

The Optograf analyzer monitors industrial gases to allow control and optimization of process units used in the Industrial gases, Specialty Chemical, Refining, and Oil & Gas industries. These include gasifiers, reformers, hydrocrackers, hydrotreaters, shift converters, methanators, ammonia and methanol converters, CCS units, and pressure swing adsorbers (PSA). Results improve efficiency, adjust key gas ratios, and enhance worker safety since no gases need to be transported to the analyzer.

Ammonia production

Gas composition analysis of CH3OH, H2, N2, CO, and CO2 at the inlets and outlets of critical process units, such as air separation units, gasifiers, reformers, shift converters, methanators, CO2 absorbers and strippers, and ammonia converters is used to control the production and proper composition of syngas to ensure that the required H2/N2 ratio is maintained for the efficient production of ammonia.

Methanol production

Gas composition analysis of NH4, H2, N2, CO, and CO2 at the inlets and outlets of critical process units, such as air separation units, gasifiers, reformers, shift converters, methanators, CO2 absorbers and strippers, and ammonia converters is used to control the production and proper composition of syngas to ensure that the required stoichiometric number [H2-CO2]/[CO+CO2]is maintained for the efficient production of methanol.

Captive Hydrogen and Merchant Hydrogen production

Gas composition analysis of H2, CO, and CO2 at the inlets and outlets of critical process units, such as air separation units, gasifiers, reformers, shift converters, methanators, CO2 absorbers and strippers, and pressure swing adsorbers (PSA) is used to control production and proper composition of syngas to ensure efficient production of H2 and CO at refineries (captive) or commercial HyCO (merchant) production facilities.

Synthetic Natural Gas (SNG) production

Gas composition analysis of CH4, H2, CO, and CO2 at the inlets and outlets of critical process units, such as air separation units, gasifiers, reformers, shift converters, methanators, CO2 absorbers and strippers, and pressure swing adsorbers (PSA) is used to control the production and proper composition of syngas depending on whether it will be used as fuel for a gas turbine, or it will be converted to synthetic natural gas using a methanotor, which requires an H2/CO ratio of 3.
