Protecting process analyzer applications

GRP enclosures simplify protection and maintain proper function of measuring equipment

Protective enclosures and shades are key for many process analyzers. Current trends make their design even more critical. More analyzers are being installed and space must be found in crowded environments where operator access can be difficult, and the instruments can be very sensitive. An associated trend is to fit more and smaller analyzers into conventional shelters.

Maintaining stable sample temperatures and operating environments is critical for measurement quality. Achieving proper temperature control with metal enclosures and metal shades can be difficult; even if good insulation is applied. Entry points in enclosures are often not sufficiently covered. Glass-fiber reinforced plastic on the other hand has a thermal performance that is about three orders of magnitude lower, which means that our enclosures and shades do not conduct heat as well as steel would. The exceptional insulation of INTERTEC's composite GRP delivers stable internal environments and thus low energy consumption for cooling or heating units. And minimal interference with neighboring equipment, which is useful for tightly packed analyzer shelters.

GRP does not rust or degrade in any significant way, allowing maintenance-free lifecycles of up to 30 years.

GRP is also around 25% of the weight of steel, making it easier to mount analyzers directly onto piping or process columns. INTERTEC’s construction techniques even make it possible to create custom shapes for your application.

Offshore applications can be especially difficult. The 'floating LNG plant' Prelude offers an interesting example - read about it here.
