Petrochemical

Petrochemicals are chemicals originating from natural gas or petroleum. These chemicals are used for a wide variety of applications and are a significant source of anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) impact. For example, the GHG methane (CH4) is a primary component of natural gas. Natural gas is used in the production processes of petrochemicals such as ethylene, a fruit ripening agent and plastic component, as well as ammonia (NH3), used primarily in fertilizers. The GHG carbon dioxide (CO2) is a byproduct of petrochemical manufacturing and a significant source of climate change. Monitoring activities may help to identify gas sources, ensure safety, or confirm compliance.

Ambient Air Monitoring System for Ethylene Oxide

The ability to monitor and quantify ethylene oxide (EtO or EO) is central to eliminating sources and reducing long-term exposure to this hazardous air pollutant. The Picarro Ambient Air Monitoring System for Ethylene Oxide continuously and automatically monitors and quantifies low, ambient levels of EtO. It is ideal for use in community monitoring stations and at industrial fencelines. 

Leveraging Picarro’s advanced Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy (CRDS), this system offers several unique advantages over canister-based methods and legacy technologies, including: 

Combustion Module

The Combustion Module, designed for Picarro by Costech (a leader in combustion systems), combusts solid samples as small as 250mg C to release CO2 gas. The Combustion Module is connected to a Picarro isotopic analyzer via the Picarro Caddy (A2100) or the Picarro Liaison™ Universal Interface (A0301) for high-precision carbon isotope (13C) measurements from carbon dioxide.

AutoMate Prep Device

When a Picarro δ13C-CO2 analyzer is coupled with an Automate FX sample preparation device, the system provides δ13C measurements of the dissolved inorganic carbon in water samples or δ13C in solid carbonate samples. The AutoMate Prep Device adds phosphoric acid to the samples to liberate CO2, which flows to the Picarro for δ13C-CO2 analysis.
