A revolutionary solution for natural gas quality monitoring

Sep 04 2023

The Sensi+ analyser, from ABB, simplifies pipeline operation and maintenance in the natural gas sector, whilst cutting costs. Operators enjoy far easier monitoring and operation of pipelines, with enhanced safety and efficiency,  via a single instrument that can analyse H2S, H2O and CO2 in all natural gas streams precisely and in real time. Thanks to the Sensi+’s rapid response, operators can react quickly to process problems to facilitate waste reduction and methane emissions.

Reducing the risk and effects of natural gas contamination is often a major challenge for pipeline operators, process industries and natural gas utilities; it is often necessary to oversee several technologies and instruments to achieve a complete analysis. This established approach to pipeline monitoring is complex, susceptible to failure and costly. The conventional approach often involves, each contaminant needing a separate analyser and maintenance schedule, while operators need an extremely high level of training and experience to operate, validate, and service the devices.

ABB’s Sensi+ needs approximately six times less sample flowrate to take precise measurements in comparison to conventional technologies, thus lowering the analyser’s total carbon emissions and wastage of natural gas in the atmosphere. This strengthens ABB’s commitment of helping to create a low-carbon society by reducing carbon emissions and supporting sustainable operations in industries traditionally associated with high emission levels.

Operators of natural gas pipelines face the crucial and difficult job of managing their installed analysers to ensure their reliability, system integrity and performance for custody transfer operations, while reducing emissions and overseeing process control applications. The Sensi+ is a hazardous area compliant analyser that requires just a simple wall mount installation and process tie-in without tricky and complicated system purging. After installation and validation, the device will provide quick and precise measurements in the field without the need for calibration.

The Sensi+ analyser features ABB’s AnalyzerExpert™ which provides technicians with actions and insights directly from the device; this provides users with integrated self-diagnostics, automated laser line-locking, real-time cross-interference compensation, and health monitoring, directly on the instrument.
