Trace S-1000

Trace S- 1000 Analyzer for Total Sulfur in Gas Application

The ATOM TraceS-1000 is an online process analyzer utilizing patented Excimer UV Fluorescence (EUVF) Technology to measure Total Sulfur in a variety of refinery process applications.

The Model TraceS-1000 with EUVF is a field proven technology that utilizes an excitation wavelength that achieves high detection sensitivity and detector stability. The TraceS-1000 is an excellent fit for applications in the 0-1ppm range and is exceptionally stable, even at concentrations less than 1 ppm. The TraceS-1000 is designed for outdoor installation and use in harsh environments as may be required by the refining (LPG), gas processing (NGL) and natural gas industries.

The TraceS-1000 total sulfur measurement provides complete analysis of all sulfur compounds potentially present in process gas streams and not just a few selected sulfur compounds as with some GC/TDL applications. Calibration and validation is seamlessly incorporated with an optional calibration switching configuration and associated software for easy compliance or verification testing.

Simplified Design Improves Certification and Process Monitoring

The TraceS-1000 total sulfur measurement provides a complete analysis of all sulfur compounds potentially present in process gas streams and not just a few selected sulfur compounds as with some GC/TDL applications. Calibration and validation is seamlessly incorporated with an optional calibration switching configuration and associated software for easy compliance or verification testing.

Graphical User Interface (GUI)

The SGA software incorporates a user-friendly Graphical User Interface (GUI) designed to be both intuitive and easy to use. All aspects of analyzer operation are accessible from the Main toolbar utilizing drop down menu screens.

The home screen displays 3 user selectable digital readout and analog bar graphs updated in real-time from the analysis. Run Cycle Status and current timed events are refreshed moment by moment. Major system control elements are also incorporated in this home screen.

The calibrate menu allows complete control of the calibration and validation processes, including manual or auto calibration and validation sequencing. Analytical results acquired during calibration events may be inspected at any time prior to any subsequent calibration.

All other menu screens such as Timed Events, Detector, Analog Output, Digital I/O and System Alarm Settings, allow the user to easily monitor or make changes to all aspects of analyzer control and operation.

The GUI software also includes user setup and password security, as well as plotting of real-time analysis data and historical settings.

Remote ATOM ACCESS

The Analyzer Central Communication Ethernet Server Software allows an authorized user to access any ATOM analyzer on the facility network from an internal office or work station. After a successful security login, the network will initiate communication to the selected instrument of choice. Once connected, the instrument can be operated and interfaced with just as if the user was standing directly in front of the instrument. Instead of utilizing the analyzer touch screen, the remote connection keyboard and mouse are used for all interface requirements.

Speed of Analysis and Response Time

The TraceS-1000 is specifically designed for high-speed analysis and fast response time. This feature enables more rapid, real-time measurements to be performed allowing process events and changes to be more timely monitored and quantified. Process variations and detail potentially obscured with slower responding analyzers, may be revealed or become more apparent. Although the cycle time is completely user selectable, a 100-second cycle time is standard. However, the TraceS-1000 can be easily reconfigured for a cycle time as fast as 60-seconds, should the need for higher speed analysis be necessary or desired.

Low Concentration Total Sulfur Analysis

The TraceS-1000 allows stable and accurate analysis at both high and low sulfur concentrations below 1 PPM. Taking advantage of the standard 100 second analysis cycle time, any number of standard analysis up to 10 sequential results can be seamlessly averaged to provide a more consistent and reliable concentration measurement, allowing optimization of low range detection performance and analyzer response time depending on application requirements.
