TRACErase Zero Emission Analyzer Waste Vents Solutions

The Problem

Operation of chemical and gas processing plants and transportation pipelines often requires the use of chemical analysis instrumentation. These instruments frequently require a pressure reference to atmospheric pressure for proper operation. This reference can be achieved by venting the sample to the atmosphere. These vented samples, generally called fugitive emissions, are air pollutants and contribute to worldwide pollution problems.

The Focus

The focus of TRACErase technology is the use of a catalytic combustion process to oxidize the vented sample while maintaining the atmospheric pressure reference. The TRACErase utilizes a continuous heat source to allow the oxidation process to be effective on intermittent fugitive emission streams.

The Packaging

The packaging of the system is designed to provide explosion proof protection, thus allowing the application of this technology in hazardous locations.
