Have you seen our latest project highlight featuring a gas chromatograph portable enclosure skid? SIT was approached by a valued client with a unique application involving the dual fuel system on their 2500HP Tier 4 diesel engines. In this system, the diesel fuel can be substituted with natural gas coming directly from a variety of onsite sources. This practice significantly reduces operating expenses by lowering the overall fuel costs via the ability to replace between 65% to 85% of the diesel with natural gas.

This was a challenging project because we had to generate a standalone gas analyzation package that could sample the natural gas source from up to 100 ft away, feed that sample through a compact gas chromatograph (GC) and then communicate the results wirelessly to a centralized control network.

Specifications provided by SIT included:

  • Rosemount™ 370XA Gas Chromatograph
  • Custom process gas sampling reel assembly with associated carrier, actuation, and calibration gas bottles
  • Nitrogen purged electrical enclosure
  • Custom power supply system integrating 120VAC input power and solar charged backup batteries

SIT designed and developed a complete package for this solution, alongside our client partner, in only six (6) weeks’ time, with the unit fully operational and in the field after only nine (9) weeks. The customer was extremely pleased with SIT’s ability to comprehensively develop such a unique package tailored to their specific application, in such a short window.
