Organic amines are corrosion control agents that increase pH and scavenge corrosive contaminants. Methylamine (MMA), for example, is a widely-used building block used in a variety of industries. Methylamine analysis is an essential tool for process control, monitoring, and optimization.
Gas Sweetening in the Oil and Gas Industry
MMA is used in natural gas processing facilities to remove acidic gases, such as hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and carbon dioxide (CO2), from natural gas streams. This process is known as gas sweetening, and it ensures the quality of the natural gas for transportation and consumption. The most frequent use is as a component of MMA-triazine in triazine-based scavenging systems.
In all applications, on-site monitoring for amines can help maintain appropriate corrosion protection, extending system lifetime and avoiding costly corrosion-induced shutdowns and failures. The OndaVia Analysis System with the Methylamine Analysis Cartridge provides a fast, easy measurement. The bench-top instrument consumes single-use, disposable analysis cartridges (OndaVia Analysis System) or tubes (OPAL-104) that provide a fast, easy-to-understand measurement of MMA levels in water. The method is easily adaptable to monitoring amines in air or on surfaces. Whether used to control amine dosing or as a wastewater monitoring system, an OndaVia system provides fast, easy-to-understand data. In contrast to the alternative of laboratory analysis, an OndaVia system gives you the on-site results needed for an immediate response. We offer two cartridge styles for methylamine analysis: one for high-ppm analysis and one for low-ppm analysis.
Tests are provided ten (10) per box.
All OndaVia kits require an instrument to read the results.
