Oxygen analysis is critical to maintaining safety in the PTA process, and to supporting productivity. In addition, some operators use an oxygen enrichment process on their PTA plants, which requires a specialist oxygen (O2) monitoring solution for both safety and efficiency.
The enriched oxygen process involves adding O2 to the air being fed to the reactors, bringing the O2 level up to 25%. This ensures a more efficient reaction, reducing catalyst consumption, and improving reactor performance. A reliable and accurate monitoring solution was required to maintain the O2 concentration at the most efficient level while ensuring it did not exceed safe levels.
Servomex’s O2 monitoring solution for this application is built around the SERVOTOUGH OxyExact 2200 high-specification Paramagnetic oxygen analyzer. This analyzer is able to operate effectively and reliably in hazardous environments, with a resilient enclosure for the transmitter unit.
