RVP in process: ensure safety, comply with specifications, optimize profits

Pipeline operators, offshore platforms, terminals, fuel depots or oil tankers detect the vapor pressure, before transporting crude oil or other petrochemical products such as Gasoline or LPG for subsequent processing. It is absolutely necessary to know the vapor pressure of the transported substance to prevent costly damage done to the transportation or storage system.
 
Apart from the costs a failure might cause, environmental regulations limit maximum vapor pressure in floating roof tankers, to prevent air pollution control by outgassing of petroleum products.
 
The MINIVAP-On-Line from AMETEK Grabner Instruments is the only process analyzer that directly measures Reid Vapor Pressure (RVPE), True Vapor Pressure (TVP) and vapor/liquid ratio according to all major industry standards.  The highly versatile instrument can be used to determine the vapor pressure of gasoline, crude oil, LPG and NPG.
 
Based on extensive ASTM inter-laboratory measurements, the MINIVAP On-Line analyzer outperforms other vapor pressure process analyzers in terms of precision. That precision allows fuel blending as close as 0.3kPa (0.05psi) to vapor pressure, helping to reduce costs and optimize operating profits. It is a unique RVP process analyzer able to perform a triple expansion, offering refiners considerably improved reliability and Round Robin-proven precision.
