Gas Chromatograph Analyzer Buildings

Owners and operators understand how critical it is to minimize downtime, streamline operations and maximize operational efficiency to drive profits. Since the volume, BTU rating and purity of natural gas determine the price at which it is sold, investing in accurate measurement of gas composition enables owners and operators to actively manage their supply lines to ensure their natural gas is sold at the best possible price. By using an online gas chromatograph, rather than spot sampling, operators are able to price the natural gas they receive more accurately through real-time composition assessments.

SKW Enterprise Solution’s gas chromatograph analyzer buildings consist of two independent sections, a hazardous side where the gas is sampled and analyzed, and a nonhazardous side where the control system and power supply is housed. With the ability to measure multiple streams, these analyzer buildings are well suited to areas with multiple pipelines and large interconnects.

The fully climate controlled building is designed with operators in mind to make field work safe, comfortable and more efficient.
