The production of this versatile chemical building block requires precise gas analysis measurements to ensure process safety and a highly productive process.
Find out more about our solutions for ethylene oxide production and related processes. Download the information you need to stay up to date.
Ethylene oxide is formed in a reaction between oxygen and ethylene, and requires highly accurate monitoring of oxygen levels to ensure safety and protect the process against a risk of explosion. Quality and process control measurements may also be made to support efficiency.
The exothermic nature of the ethylene oxide process means safety is an essential concern, especially around the process reactors where hazardous flammable samples containing ethylene, oxygen, ethylene oxide and methane may be present. Failure to control oxygen levels at this point can create highly hazardous conditions.
To provide safety-critical oxygen analysis for the reactor inlet and outlet, Servomex provides a dual or triple-redundancy gas analysis system using SERVOTOUGH OxyExact 2200 analyzers. Specifically designed for hazardous area operation, these Paramagnetic analyzers deliver the accurate, reliable measurements needed as part of a Safety Integrated System (SIS).
We’re the global experts in gas analysis, with extensive experience in supplying solutions to the ethylene oxide process. We’ve provided SIS installations to more than 40 plants worldwide, and have deep applications across the process.
With SIL 2 hardware compliance and intrinsically safe analyzer design, our systems are ready to meet the challenges of hazardous process conditions, delivering the accurate measurements required.
Our variety of gas analysis sensing technologies ensures we’re able to provide the best solution for each measurement point in ethylene oxide, whatever the process conditions.
All our high-performance analyzers are backed by a worldwide network of service and support personnel, to ensure reliable performance at optimum levels.
