Hydrocarbon Processing


Hydrocarbon Processing is one of the most demanding industries in the world.  High levels of productivity must be achieved while constantly maintaining the very highest safety standards. Effective gas analysis is a critical component of all HP processes, typically requiring a wide range of measurements to ensure the safe, optimized running of the process.

As the world leader in gas analysis, Servomex analyzers and systems are used extensively in midstream and downstream HP processes covering refining and the production of chemicals, petrochemicals, natural gas and fuels. Our rugged, resilient analyzers are custom designed to perform in the most extreme process conditions; our expertise, combined with a detailed applications knowledge, ensures the best gas analysis solution is delivered to your plant.

Supported by a global network of Service and Support, Servomex guarantees operational safety, product quality and process efficiency. That’s why we’re chosen with confidence by HP operators worldwide.

Whatever your HP process, we have the gas analysis solution to support you. Talk to Servomex today.

Application types
Application types

Reliable measurements are needed to manage many process requirements. These range from optimizing the safety and effectiveness of a process, to controlling combustion or reducing emissions. Servomex provides HP operators measurements that meet the five different types of applications customers require:

  • Combustion Control
  • Emissions Monitoring
  • Process Control 
  • Process Safety
  • Quality Control

Support for each application type ranges from single-analyzer, single-point solutions, to complex multi-analyzer systems, that deliver multiple measurements throughout a process.

Control and safety measurements for process oxygen are delivered through the SERVOTOUGH Oxy 1900 and OxyExact 2200 analyzers, while the abilities of the SERVOTOUGH SpectraExact 2500, to measure corrosive, toxic and flammable samples streams, makes it ideal for a range of process and combustion applications. Efficient combustion control for boilers, crackers and furnace is critical: Through the SERVOTOUGH FluegasExact 2700 combustion analyzer and SERVOTOUGH LaserSP 2900 TDL monitor, Servomex offers the industry-leading solution for safe, efficient combustion control.  

Rapidly changing environmental legislation means Continuous Emissions Monitoring Systems (CEMS) are mandatory in most Power Generations processes. We offer simultaneous monitoring for a range of flue gases through the SERVOPRO 4900 CEMS analyzer, our proven multi-gas emissions analyzer. 

Finally, the effective measurement of hydrocarbons C1-C5+ are now covered through the revolutionary real-time measurements provided by the SERVOTOUGH SpectraScan 5400 light hydrocarbon analyzer.
