Gas chromatographs (GCs) are used in the oil & gas industry where critical measurement of the components in gas are required. GCs are used in custody transfer applications to more complex hydrocarbon C9+ analysis with dew point calculations, trace contaminant monitoring, and product quality verification. A GC consists of a probe, sample system, chromatographic oven […]

Gas chromatographs (GCs) are used in natural gas custody transfer applications. They provide information on the gas quality and composition—with components such as methane, ethane and heavier hydrocarbons, water vapor, carbon dioxide, nitrogen and hydrogen sulfide. These gas chromatograph are normally located on large gas stations with dedicated buyer use. In a Pipeline & Gas […]
