Implementing a Successful Oil & Gas Sampling Program

July 15, 2021

With aging equipment and facilities, operators face increasing challenges in maintaining equipment reliability, integrity and safety. One of the biggest hidden threats to efficient and safe operation is deteriorating sampling equipment. However, oil and gas companies often operate sampling systems as separate entities within their systems. This leaves operations open to gaps and potential risks in their sampling system.

Analysis of Hand Sanitizers to Support Label Claims

whitePaper | April 30, 2021

At the height of the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, consumers around the world experienced a supply shortage related to alcohol-based hand sanitizer. As new producers entered the market, and existing manufacturers sought to ramp-up production to meet the growing demand, lower grades of ethanol and isopropanol (IPA) started to appear on the market. To ensure the safety and efficacy of hand sanitizer products, it is recommended that manufacturers test their products to ensure appropriate levels of active ingredients, as well as a means of ensuring label-claim accuracy. In this application note, an efficient and simple, “dilute and shoot” method for the analysis of IPA and ethanol in hand sanitizer products is detailed. With a run-time of only 5.36 minutes per sample, this method is ideal for operations requiring fast turnaround times that won’t disrupt the production of their products.

Boosting the performance of natural gas sweetening membrane plants

whitePaper | May 1, 2021

The performance of membrane separation processes is mainly driven by the specific separation performance of the membrane modules in addition to smart integration of this separation unit in the overall process design. The setup of membrane modules for polymeric membranes is often based on either flat sheets or hollow fibers. Given the one or the other concept, the implemented membrane material and separation layer thickness defines the maximum performance of the module with a supportive housing design. Thus, the ability to modify intrinsic properties of the polymer and the control of the membrane formation process are key factors to produce a superior membrane product. This is where competencies of a specialty chemicals company, i.e. Evonik, can contribute to unique membrane solutions for the market.
