ABB PGC5000 Series Technology Review

Solutions from the process sample tap to measurement delivery.

The Hydrocarbon Processing Industry (HPI) converts gas, coal, and petroleum feedstocks into energy, petrochemicals, and a broad array of chemical products for industry, agriculture, and consumers. Processing of naturally occurring materials into manmade products is a multi-step continuous process designed to produce a consistent manufactured result. Safety, quality, and profitability require that the products are produced in a reliable and repeatable fashion. Producing the product Right the First Time is a continual challenge due to the variation in naturally occurring raw materials.

Process analytics provides a window into the chemical production process and the results are a direct measurement of the chemical parameters to optimize and enhance the standard physical data of pressure, temperature, flow, and viscosity for the process unit. Process analysis starts with the requirement to consistently present the sample to the analyzer for analysis and ends with the successful delivery of valid analysis data to the Distributed Control System (DCS) or other monitoring systems. The technologies used for Sample Handling, Conditioning, Analysis, and Reporting continue to evolve and improve in reliability. Reliability is a key feature for process analytics and it is directly related to the robustness of the Sample Handling Systems (SHS), Process Analyzers, and Communication Links.
