PETRA

PETRochemical Analyzer

We will develop a prototype instrument for optical on-line analysis in petrochemical process streams. It will quantify percent-level composition of hydrocarbon mixtures and detect trace-level (parts-per-million) contaminants in an ethylene matrix. Such a product will replace high-maintenance chromatographs. The consortium will exploit disruptive broadband laser technology in the mid infrared spectral region to develop such an optical analytical tool.
