Abstract Information :

H2S measurements have been a requirement in water/waste water and the petroleum industry for quite some time. UOP163 is a popular method within petroleum testing but potentiometric titration does have many issues and requires a lot of solvent for each titration/test.

What the industry needs is a reliable and user friendly method that can accurately detect 0.01 ppm levels of H2S in all known sample types with high sensitivity.

It is ECH Elektrochemie Halle GmbH who have developed a H2S-analyser that can be used for all liquid, solid and gas samples whilst also being offered for use in the laboratory with automation, as an on-site/portable analyser and most recently, as a fully automated on-line system that works within your companies process.

The H2S technique developed by ECH does not require any sample preparation, involves a simple gas extraction and a unique H2S electrochemical sensor.

During the presentation, new ideas and principles of the H2S-analyser and our application to different kinds of petrochemical products are described. Most analysis times are performed in 1-10 minutes with high accuracy and use of different sample sizes from 0.01 ml to 20ml.

We will be discussing our latest developments within the new DIN standard for H2S in waste water and how we are assisting the petroleum industry realize this very important measurement in all sample types.

ECH Elektrochemie Halle GmbH have been established since 1992 developing many techniques we now take for granted in petroleum and water/waste water testing.
