Tank Headspace Monitoring Systems – THMS

Applications

in the Oil and Gas industry.

Water treatment plant in refineries and other oil and gas processes requires the use of tank for storage purposes and as part of the wastewater management plan. The composition of the air confined in the tank headspace provides a good indication of the level of contamination in the wastewater influents. Monitoring gas in tank headspaces also becomes mandatory when it comes to managing oils contaminated water. Explosion risks but also the corrosion and degradation factor are controlled with the blanketing whose automation can largely be optimised by the online measurement of gas concentrations in the headspace. Moreover there is a large number of compounds that will  adduce plant operators detailed information with regards to filtration and decantation processes.

Tank Blanketing Automation

Tank blanketing is the process of filling the headspace in storage vessels and reactors with an inert gas, usually to protect its contents from exploding, degrade but also to protect equipment from corrosion. As oxygen and moisture in the air can be undesired in numerous processes and applications, blanketing is done in a wide range of industries, varying from petrochemicals to food and beverage, pharmaceutical to pure water. Inerting is done for similar reasons but is not limited to storage tanks and reactors only. Any confined space can be sparged with an inert gas to create the desired atmosphere. This ranges from packing food under protective atmosphere to increase shelf life to lowering the oxygen concentration in rooms where welding takes place to reduce risk of fire.

Risks Management

Wrongly engineered or poorly maintained blanketing systems may lead to serious incidents, degraded plant operations and pollution events. A malfunctioning may cause the tank to implode or causes the leaking of air into the tank, which, as mentioned, can have consequences with regard to product quality and, depending on the stored product, can seriously increase risk of explosion.

One way to increase safety and reduce the use of blanketing gas (nitrogen, air…) simultaneously is to control inertisation as a function of gas concentration in the headspace. Depending on the product and the reason for blanketing and inerting, there are tolerances when it comes down to the maximum allowable oxygen, VOCs or other combustibles concentration. Certain monomers require zero percent oxygen to prevent polymerization. Others require a small amount of oxygen for the same reason. In the case of explosion protection, the oxygen concentration does not necessarily need to be zero. In fact for all solvents a so called limiting oxygen concentration exists. Below this concentration there is no risk of explosion. It is obvious that controlling the tank headspace purge based on the concentration will seriously cut nitrogen or other blanketing gas costs. Furthermore the measurement of gas concentrations in the tank headspace provides an important safety parameter.   Thresholds such as Limiting Oxygen Concentration (LOC), Maximum Oxygen Concentration (MOC), Lower Explosive Limit (LEL) indicate application and gas specific limits in terms of concentration.

For example, two threshold values are established for the oxygen concentration in the tank headspace, well below the Limiting Oxygen Concentration; the Lower Intervention Level and the Upper Intervention Level. These two threshold values are the set-points that control the purging sequences. The moment the oxygen concentration reaches the Lower Intervention Limit, the nitrogen flow is intermittent. Purging of the vessel is resumed when the upper intervention limit is exceeded. This means that the inerting system keeps the consumption of nitrogen minimal while safe operation is ensured.

Analyser solutions

Depending on individual process conditions and solvent; O2, H2O and LEL are usually the main parameters of interest. However when odour control is implemented NH3, H2S and VOCs can be added to the monitored parameters.

To meet the needs of the waste recycling facilities, AquaGas offers a unique fully automatic solution for realtime measurement of gas concentrations in Tank Headspaces. AquaGas THMS features the association of a MAMOS multigas analyser fitted with a combination of 9 gas proprietary measuring cells with a field proven, robust and dedicated Exproof sampling train. The system can be multiplexed for controlling up to 4 tank headspaces. Both the gas sampling probe located at the top of the tank and the sample line are temperature controlled above the gas dew point. Depending on the application, the gas can also be fitted with the optional backflush, temperature sensor, insitu filter… The onboard PLC offers a large panel of IOs as required to handle blanketing regulator, breathing valve, safety relief valve…

The THMS is integrated in Australia by AquaGas for continuous and simultaneous measurement of VOC, NH3, CO, CO2, LEL, CxHy, H2S and O2 inside tank headspaces.

Advantages of AquaGas THMS

The AquaGas THMS is a cost efficient and safe solution available in a compact wall mount IP56 enclosure that totally eliminates the need for multiple sensors and probes. The sampling probe can be mounted directly into the vessel or blanketing gas discharge piping and is rated for high dust, moisture or solvents loads. A retractable filter assembly allows cleaning of the sampling probe without the need for dismounting the probe from its matching flange. Zero calibration is performed automatically on a daily basis while span gas calibration is only required quarterly. In very critical applications, the system can be equipped with redundant probes and or sensors for additional safety and self check purposes. Compared to traditional analyser technology, the AquaGas THMS is available at only a fraction of the costs. The most valued perceived benefit however is the significant increase of safety, enormous savings on tank maintenance as well as the optimised process operations.

The entire system is mounted on a wall mount plate and designed for installation in industrial settings and rough environment. It has a modular construction, and offer a large panel of add-ons to match site specific application requirements. The Mamos minimises the installation and ongoing operation cost until now required to fulfil your monitoring needs.

MAMOS-Multigas-analyser-CEMS-features

Multigas

Depending of the gas matrix and components to be analysed, the Mamos can be fitted with up to 6 different sensors. The combination of technologies (NDIR, TCD, PID, Electrochemical) and the addition of separate gas channels into the same instrument empower flexibility in multigas applications. A unique feature is to allocate a gas channel to sensible sensors. Its design ensures the cells have a limited exposure to gases and therefore extends considerably their respective life-time.

Process gas and emissions monitoring in combustion plants, boilers, syngas, biogas, waste recycling facilities and associated filtration systems are typical applications for multiple gas channels configuration.

In Biogas, the primary gas channel holds the CO2, CH4, Osensors while an additional separate gas channel is allocated to sensible Electrochemical sensors, H2S for example. The two NDIR gas channels can then be used for CO and VOCs.

Versatile in use

The sampling system configuration can be adapted to specific monitoring needs such as multipoint monitoring, redundancy, continuous or time set measuring cycles… When sampling from wet and hot gas, moisture content, condensates and salts are continuously removed by the use of one or several gas dryer(s) (Peltier or Nafion) equipped with built-in safety filter, condensate trap and safety inline particulate filters.

Wether it uses the built-in sampling pump or the pressure from the source, the analyser is designed to work with overpressure. Single gas channel configuration can handle overpressure up 1.8 bar.
