Abstract Information :

Safe LPG sample handling is an important issue in every laboratory. Due to the high pressure nature of this sample type, special precautions have to be taken to guarantee high laboratory safety. This poster describes the exercises followed on risk analysis for the Sample Securitiser from Global Analyser Solutions, using HAZOP study methodology, verifying PED (Pressure Equipment Directive) and ATEX Directives. Apart from safety, the accurate analysis of LPG is of great importance as well. Besides hydrocarbon composition, also trace amounts of other present species need to be known for the various usage of the LPG. This poster focusses on the analysis of Sulfur compounds and permanent gases at ppb/ppm level, using customised analysers with (Pulsed) Flame Photometer Detector and Pulsed Discharge Detector.
