The Process Diagnostic Division of the company evaluates the online performance of distillation columns, heat exchangers, reactors, and other process equipment. They provide an array of many different services based upon different process investigation technologies. Two commonly known services are gamma scanning and radioactive tracing. Gamma scans are used to evaluate the performance of distillation columns, strippers, absorbers, reactors and other process equipment. Problems such as tray damage, foaming, or packed bed maldistribution can be readily identified by using this service. Radioactive tracing is used to identify leaks in exchangers, perform residence time distribution studies on vessels and reactors, and to perform flow rate measurements. Virtually all services are performed while the equipment is on-line. Significant savings are possible by avoiding unnecessary shut downs, or by increasing production.
