Natural Gas Analysis & Testing

Tailored analyzers for natural gas, natural gas liquids and sulfur by-product analysis

The production, transport and utilization of natural gas NG, natural gas liquids, NGL, liquefied petroleum gas LPG, and refinery gas RG, requires critical analysis to ensure, quality, safety, and efficiency. Variations in BTU content can greatly affect performance and cost, impurities like sulfur and other metals can impact downstream processes and quality of processing chemicals like amine salts are key to stripping sulfur the source. Thermo Fisher Scientific can provide solutions for these and many other key analyses vital to your operation.
