ABB Totalflow 8000/8100 Btu/CV Transmitter
This "transmitter - like" natural gas analyzer provides for on-site gas analysis and heating value where conventional chromatograph technology is not practical. Fast analysis cycle and automatic setup features make installation and maintenance easy. Modular design makes mean-time-to-repair as short as a couple of hours. State-of-the-art digital pressure regulator and other electronics allow months between calibrations. Multiple protocols, including several versions of Modbus, are supported.
Modular Design - Sampling System, Stream Selector Module, Analysis Section contains a dual-train chromatograph in a single replaceable module, Controlling Electronics, Electronic Carrier Pressure Regulation; Microsoft? Windows? 95, 98, 2000, XP or NT based man-machine interface software; Lithium battery-backed RAM; Three remote serial digital comm ports (one local port); Comprehensive diagnostics; Three-level security code for access control; Audit-quality historical data, date and time stamped; Auto-start cycle automatically: 1) stabilizes oven temperature, 2) confirms modules' functions, 3) sets valve operation times, 4) locates natural gas components, 5) sets carrier gas pressure, 6) gates natural gas components, 7) validates/calibrates, 8) returns to pipeline streams; Operational alarms available with each analysis cycle; Detectors - glass encapsulated thermistor beads for rugged service and long life. Will not burn out on loss of carrier gas; Four and six port valves with no moving metal parts.
