Monitoring the chloride in crude oil after desalting is crucial to check the desalting process efficiency and to prevent corrosion problems in downstream processes.

Metrohm Applikon presents a total solution based on the ADI 2045TI Ex proof Process Analyzer using conductivity detection as per ASTM D3230 (AN-PAN-1014).
The ADI 2045TI Ex proof Process Analyzer is a highly versatile system suitable for multi-parameter analysis depending on the requirements.

In this particular application, determination of the salt content is implemented as per ASTM D3230. Since the sampling point is typically in a hazardous environment, the ADI 2045TI Ex proof Process Analyzer is designed and equipped to meet directives 94/9/EC (ATEX95). No "hot work permits" are needed for maintenance and the analyzer can be remotely controlled.

More information on the ADI 2045TI Ex proof Process Analyzer and this application is available from Metrohm Applikon.
