Rosemount™ 770XA Natural Gas Chromatograph
The Rosemount 770XA GC provides accurate analysis of natural gas in an explosion-proof, transmitter-style design.
With its parallel chromatography and ATEX/IECEX safety rating, the Rosemount 700XA is ideal for natural gas custody transfer and applications requiring advanced gas composition analysis such as C9+ with hydrocarbon dew point (HCDP) calculations, C6+ and Total Sulfur measurement. The field-mountable design of the Rosemount 770XA GC reduces the need for elaborate analyzer shelters or temperature control requirements.

Features

  • Industry's first transmitter-style chromatograph capable of combining the measurement of natural gas energy content, hydrogen sulfide, speciation of total sulfur compounds to trace levels, and hydrocarbon dew point (HCDP) calculations in a single-analyzer solution
  • Explosion-proof and ATEX/IECEX safety rating enables field installation without enclosure even in Class 1, Division 1 areas
  • No instrument air for purge or oven required, reducing power consumption over traditional air purged GC units
  • Secure, remote operation capabilities enable audit checks and reduce the need to attend remote locations
  • Wide dynamic measurement ranges from percent to trace-level components
  • Micro flame photometric detector (µFPD) and micro flame ionization detector (µFID) sensitive to parts-per-billion levels
  • Thermal conductivity detector (TCD) sensitive down to low parts-per-million levels
  • Reliable performance over broad ambient temperatures -20 °C to 60 °C / -4 °F to 140 °F (application-dependent)
  • Fully compatible with modern Ethernet networks and DCS communication
  • Storage of up to 2,500 chromatograms, including sample calibration and validation streams
