Why is it important to measure and control mercury in natural gas streams?
Measuring mercury content is important for natural gas producers. Mercury, even in trace amounts, can damage gas processing equipment, various metal parts, and gas pipelines due to steady mercury amalgamation over time.
Solutions for Mercury
in Natural Gas

Dedicated connection tubing
UT-3000 analyzer unit
Automatic calibration device
Samples are collected in the plant
in special plastic bags (Tedlar Bags).
The Sampling System
Max. input pressure rating is 240 bar (3600 psig).
Safe removal of moisture by a special coalescing filter.
Heated to avoid mercury trapping by Joule-Thomson cooling effect.
Connection tubing made of specially coated stainless steel.
