Use TDLAS Moisture Analyzers to Monitor Moisture in Stored Natural Gas


The OptiPEAK TDL600 moisture in natural gas analyzer from Michell Instruments uses tuneable diode laser spectroscopy for fast, accurate measurements of moisture in stored natural gas.

When natural gas has been stored underground, it becomes saturated with moisture, and needs additional drying to ensure compliance with the pipeline operators’ specifications. Stored gas is usually required quickly to meet a sudden shortage and energy companies require a fast, accurate and reliable means of measuring moisture which is made when gas is exported from storage. This is exactly what the OptiPEAK TDL600 provides.

Tuneable diode laser absorption spectrometers (TDLAS) are especially suited to measuring moisture content in natural gas. Michell’s OptiPEAK TDL600 is a next-generation analyzer that automates online measurement of moisture in variable compositions of natural gas and biomethane.

It offers class-leading accuracy, with an operating range down to 1ppmV and fast response time. Its low maintenance, simple installation and setup and built-in self-verification ensures its low overall cost of ownership.
