Analyzer performance monitoring – The gas chromatograph maintenance is scheduled using time-based intervals. These intervals are mostly determined based on the standard requirements of the analyzer supplier, the experience of the local team and/or the planning of operations.

- Delivered: March 2019
- Supplier: Analytical Solutions and Products BV
- Initial goal: Connect 10 gas chromatographs for reporting to operations.
What is the case?
Because maintenance is scheduled using time-based intervals, the actual situation may differ.
When on-line measurement results deviate from laboratory or plant operation parameters, in most cases the on-line analyzer result will be doubted. Maintenance at on-line units is then scheduled while the operation of the unit is still within performance limits.
ASaP provided a solution that solves all mentioned requirements.
The result of analyzer performance monitoring
By proving the performance of the on-line units, discussions or doubting the measurement results of the on-line analyzer will be minimized. Graphics and performance results prove the correct outcome of the on-line analyzer results. This will result in preventing and reducing downtime of the unit by unnecessary maintenance for the unit and will support optimizing plant performance by creating belief in on-line analysis.
