On-line measurement of the salt concentration in crude oil plays an important role in the crude oil chain, from the well head until entering the crude distillation unit. The new MOD-4100 S is an on-line salt in crude oil analyzer, which is designed to provide real time analytical data of the salt content in crude oils. Its technology is based on ASTM D 3230, an electrometric method.
This method determines the salt concentration in crude oil by measuring its conductivity, when dissolved in a mixture of an aromatic and an alcoholic solvent.
The MOD 4100 S enables to check the salt in crude quality before and after loading and unloading, during transportation from the oil-well to the terminals, during shipment and during transportation from the terminals and tank-farms to the refineries.
