    Laser-based moisture analyzer SpectraSensors, Inc., has introduced a new moisture analyzer technology that outperforms traditional gas sensors. The laser-based analyzer can obtain consistently accurate readings on wet gas. Unaffected by the contaminants in natural gas streams, especially wet ones, the natural gas analyzer offers a precision alternative to the problems of inaccurate and slow measurements that can result in excessive treatment costs or shut-ins. Using a “tunable-diode” laser-based technology, the analyzer accurately monitors moisture content by precisely measuring the absorbance of light by moisture molecules, thereby measuring the exact amount of water (or carbon dioxide). There are no chemical conversions involved, and no natural gas sensor contact with the sample gas. This eliminates “coating” problems, erratic measurements, and exceeded tariffs. Erosion-resistant control valves Metso Automation’s Neles E Series ceramic-lined ball valve, using a new generation of ceramic material, provides the most erosion-resistant control valve currently available.
