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.
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 & reducing downtime of the unit by unnecessary maintenance for the unit and will support optimizing plant performance by creating belief in on-line analysis.
