Types of Monitoring in Oil & Gas

Since the oil & gas industry encompasses many different operations across its three major components (upstream, midstream and downstream), it requires various hazardous gas monitoring systems to protect personnel, product and facilities from accidental releases or leakage. 

Here are some examples of the types of monitoring necessary in the applications found in those components:

Application Spotlight: Oil & Gas Industry

The oil & gas industry is composed of three major components:

  1. upstream
  2. midstream
  3. downstream

The upstream industry finds and produces crude oil and natural gas. The midstream industry processes, stores, markets and transports commodities such as crude oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids. The downstream industry includes the oil refineries, petrochemical plants, petroleum product distributors and natural gas distribution companies.

Solvent Based Printing in Real Life

For the past couple weeks we shined the spotlight on the Solvent Based Printing application; WHAT goes on and WHICH hazards they face. This week let's discuss HOW you can save on costs through monitoring, by looking at real life applications:

Solvent Based Printing 101 Case History

Key Hazards in Solvent Based Printing

Solvent-based inks are essential for usage on packages of many types due to its usage on an extensive variety of exteriors and its properties of resistance to weather.These industries employ ovens or dryers to remove the solvents from the finished product.

Application Spotlight: Solvent Based Printing

Solvent based inks in different colors and patterns are applied to paper, plastic, film and foil substrates. Finished products include all sorts of wrapping paper, wall covering, candy wrappers, flexible food packages, shrink labels, high quality magazines and many, many more.

Solving Coil Coating Problems

There are 3 problems that constantly arise in coil coating applications that the installation of a solvent vapor monitoring system can solve:

Application Spotlight: Coil Coating

Coil Coating is a high-temperature solvent vapor monitoring application in which rolls of aluminum or steel are coated with a color finish, oven cured to desired specs and sold to makers of cans, rain gutters, home appliances, building & automotive products and other fabrications. Coil coating ovens typically operate at high temperatures, with some zones at over 800°F. This temperature range is needed to cure organic polymer coatings to their substrate materials.
