Analyzers for Oil, Gas, and Power Generation Markets
Block Engineering's infrared laser-based analyzers offer fast, safe, affordable analysis of hydrocarbons and related gases. Unlike traditional gas chromatographs (GCs), our QCL instruments require no consumables or carrier gases, require no calibration, and afford significant cost savings with no maintenance and calibration labor. In contrast to GCs, analysis time is extremely rapid (less than 10 seconds) and readings are highly sensitive.

Gas Analysis for Gas Turbines: The LaserSense-CV is used in gas-fired power plants to monitor incoming feed gas in real time. BTU, Specific Gravity, and Wobbe Index values are generated by the analyzer. Learn more
NGL Pipeline Mixing Quality Control: The LaserSense-NGL is an online analyzer for quality control in NGL pipeline applications. The analyzer is faster and lower maintenance than a GC, and can assist in the rapid detection of off-specification product during change-overs. Learn more
Mudlogging: Block's LaserSense-ML is a compact system designed for mudlogging applications. With the ability to detect C1-C5 gases plus isomers in ppm to percent ranges, the LaserSense-ML enables geoscientists to more precisely map the drilling geology and avoid missed shows. Learn more
BTU/Wobbe Analysis: LaserSense-CV is a calorific value analyzer that measures the BTU and Wobbe Index of natural gas streams. Based around a widely tunable mid-infrared laser, the LaserSense-CV is far more sensitive and accurate than near-IR analyzers, lower maintenance and faster than a GC, and provides for speciation in contrast to residual O2 measurement analyzers and inferential/physical properties analyzers.
