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.
The integrated mercury sampling extension for the ASaP intermittent LNG Sampler system is designed as an add-on. On June 2021 Analytical Solutions and Products had a very successful Factory Acceptance Test (FAT). The LNG Sampler for an off-shore location in Mozambique, passed the FAT with flying colors.
So much has happened over the last few months. At ASaP our development team has been working hard on new AIM features to make our predictive maintenance and analyzer data collection software (AIM) even better and more user friendly. First we added full LNG Sampler support within AIM. Following up this February 2021 these cool[…]
The patented ASaP Phazer LNG probe-vaporizer is now well-established as the new market leader. But being the best is not enough, staying the best is what matters! That is why at ASaP we spent the last 12 months solving an issue which is paramount for our customers: shortening the LNG probe-vaporizer cooldown time. One of[…]
LNG Sampler predictive maintenance is now integrated with ASaP’s proprietary Analyzer Information Module.

ASaP has been awarded to deliver the analytical instrumentation for this project and is supplying its full package for LNG[…]
Following the recent start-up and commissioning of ASaP’s revolutionary, patented Phazer LNG probe-vaporizer at an FLNG vessel with 2.4 million tonnes liquefaction capacity, we plotted the results of our latest Phazer model and the previously installed probe-vaporizer. Even with the current low prices of LNG, in this example we are looking at a difference in[…]
In September, ASaP finalized the start-up and commissioning of the most recent Phazer probe-vaporizer at the FLNG Hilli Episeyo, the world’s first converted FLNG vessel designed for a liquefaction capacity of about 2.4 million tonnes of LNG per annum. With the latest ASaP Phazer probe-vaporizer technology, the analytical results on this vessel are now unmatched.[…]
An accurate undertaking – By Hans-Peter Visser – LNG Industry September 2020 Nearly all LNG deliveries are subject to custody transfer where the LNG cargo is traded from one operator to another operator. Once custody transfer comes into place, contracts are involved. In sales and purchase agreements (SPA’s), the determination of the cargo value will[…]
Early this year ASaP was asked to present a new CEMS system solution for a well-known gas-supplier in the Rotterdam Botlek Area. Their CEMS system needed an upgrade as it had to measure additional components on top of their current CEMS measurement. As the official Channel Partner of ABB, ASaP discussed the possibilities for replacing[…]
The cycle time of traditional GC analyzers that are used for LNG analysis and energy determination is several minutes. This can be an issue if gas is being exported out of specification and needs to be diverted rapidly for further process treatment. Furthermore, for accurate accounting when metering the LNG during transfer, the LNG flow[…]
Refinery hydrogen recycle stream optimization The hydrogen process analyzer HY-OPTIMA 2700 can save you more than $200,000 on a yearly basis in a typical refinery process unit. As hydrogen is an extremely important, valuable, and limited resource within a modern complex refinery. The profitable operation of a refinery is increasingly dependent on effective fuel upgrading[…]
The Phazer conforms to ISO 8943:2007 and surpasses NEN-EN 12838:2000. Your LNG measurement is only as accurate as your provided sample… The Phazer is the only cryogenic LNG probe-vaporizer that provides verifiably accurate and representative LNG samples at 0,5 barg.
One of the successful developments of ASaP’s R&D department is the ASaP Inclined Fall-back Stokes’ Law Flare Gas Probe. This Flare Gas Probe solves the ‘old’ problem of plugging and fouling the probe and the sample conditioning system and the gas analyzers downstream. It ensures that the analyzer system remains protected from unexpected fouling ensuring uninterrupted[…]
The 2nd half of 2019 saw the breakthrough of ASaP LNG technology in the US market. Three American end-users, including the numbers 1 and 2 in the Texas-Louisiana area, selected our LNG sampler and Phazer probe-vaporizer as their standard solution. With many others to follow, we created PET64 based in Houston as our sister company[…]
Are you looking for a H2 measurement? We can provide you a free of charge trial demo unit. H2 measurement December update We are happy to announce that after a successful first trial period, our H2 measurement demo unit is free for measurement again. The unit ran parallel with a CGA-analyzer and the results were[…]
Together with our Belgian partner GGS Oil & Gas Systems (GGS) ASaP executed an order for two Phazers (LNG probe-vaporizers) and one common intermittent LNG sampler. The Phazer is developed for direct insertion into the LNG transfer line. The Phazers and LNG sampler will be installed on the world’s largest FSRU which will be moored in Turkey.

Depending on the feedstock used, gasification can produce significant amounts of the higher hydrocarbons. Knowing what they are and how much is there can lead to tighter process control and provide an early warning system for potentially damaging process upsets.
Ethanol is often referred to as a bio fuel since it can be manufactured by fermenting grains, plant biomass and other organic materials using microorganisms such as yeast cells.
Oxygen level monitoring is another important analysis in bio fuel production. Bio fuel energy, power made from organic materials such as plants and animal waste, represents the classic win-win for farmers, electricity producers and the public.
Combustion processes play a major role in the bio fuels industries, and fuel costs associated with boilers, furnaces, kilns, and process heaters, often account for the majority of the cost of running a plant.
As a result there is a requirement to monitor the environment in and around the plant to ensure that the concentrations of known pollutants remain below the exposure limits.
