Clora® Online Analyzer

On-Line Chlorine Analysis in Hydrocarbon or Water

 

Chlorine is often present in crude oils and the concentration can vary greatly depending on the origin. If not removed, Chlorine can react to form highly corrosive hydrochloric acid in areas such as crude tower overheads, leading to serious operational issues, economic loss and safety concerns. The need for a reliable online chlorine analyzer for refining process control is more important than ever. Clora Online complies with ASTM D7536 method, and delivers continuous chlorine analysis to monitor plant equipment corrosion. By monitoring desalted crude, a plant can optimize performance and immediately see impacts of crude changes (including organic chloride). Additionally, monitoring overhead water can provide the necessary feedback for chemical feed.

Chlorine contributes significantly to the corrosion of plant equipment and must be treated accordingly. With ever-changing crude quality and blends, chlorine levels can shift quickly; therefore, real-time analytical results are invaluable. The Clora On-Line analyzer presents a breakthrough analytical solution for quantification of total chlorine from 0.2 ppm up to 3000 ppm. By monitoring desalted crude, a plant can optimize performance and immediately see impacts of crude changes (including organic chloride). Additionally, monitoring overhead water can provide the needed feedback for chemical feed.

Application Areas:

Total chlorine analysis in:

  • raw and desalted crudes
  • water and effluent streams
  • refinery process st
  • LOD: 0.2 ppm in hydrocarbon matrices. (at 300 s)
  • 0.5 ppm in aqueous streams (at 300 s)
  • Dynamic range: 0.2ppm – 3000 ppm wt.
  • No consumable liquids or gasses required
  • No combustion or sample conversion: ensures safe and low maintenance operation
  • Calibration is linear up to 3000 ppm and one calibration curve runs all hydrocarbon matrices Not sensitive to sample temperature changes
  • Direct measurement in ppm wt.
  • Continuous and real time analysis
  • Uses ASTM D7536 technology
