Safe and reliable – On-line monitoring of salt content in crude oil as per ASTM D3230
25-8-2014

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 Process Analytics 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.
