In an analyzer shelter, different types of analyzers and sample systems are in operation. Because the analyzer performance is also depending on the performance of the sampling system, these parameters will also be acquired. There is a need for analyzer shelter performance monitoring and prediction of fouling of the sample system to prevent breakdown of the analyzers. Improvement of sample conditioning maintenance is necessary to increase uptime of the analyzers.
Integrated system of analysis and sampling for multiple LNG vaporizers, samplers, and analyzers – Using several software systems for monitoring and operating the LNG sampling process, makes operations more complex and operators need to be trained regularly on different systems to stay up to date.
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.
