Servomex’s technical expertise recognised with ISA annual award
7 January 2010
Crowborough, UK, 05 January 2010 – Servomex’s world-leading expertise in gas analysis has been recognised by the International Society of Automation’s Analytical Division (ISA-AD), following the presentation of a technical paper to the 53rd Analysis Division Symposium in 2009.
Servomex was awarded Second Place for Best Technical Paper and given the 2009 Gilmer/Thomason/Fowler/Konrad award for “A Comparative Analysis Of The Errors In The Measurement Of Oxygen Between In-situ And Extractive Methods”, presented to the symposium in Houston by David Fahle, VP Hydrocarbon Processing - Americas.
Following the presentation to a peer group of more than 200 professionals working in multiple industries including hydrocarbon processing, pharmaceuticals, chemicals and power generation, the paper was voted second out of 32 submissions and was invited by ISA-AD to be presented again at the ISA EXPO conference in Houston in October.
Co-authored by Servomex technical experts James Hobby, Ian Gaskin, Richard Kovacich, Martin Lopez and Bahram Alizadeh, the paper reviews the emergence of new techniques for in-situ oxygen measurement that increases the range of methods available to the user, but for which there has previously been limited analysis of the actual errors present for both in-situ and traditional extractive methods.
By exploring the major contributory errors present in both cases, Servomex offers professionals interested in the selection of oxygen analysers a valuable increased understanding of the capabilities of the available techniques – enabling them to make more informed decisions about which methods would be most suitable for their process requirements.
“Congratulations to our technical team, who worked hard to create this authoritative paper that offers real benefit to anyone evaluating the wide range of oxygen analyser techniques now available,” said Chris Cottrell, Managing Director, Servomex.
“The bedrock of our expertise is the high level of dedicated technical and scientific research we undertake, so to have our leading position recognised by an organisation as respected as ISA is an honour.”
The award rounded off a successful year for Servomex which also saw the new SERVOTOUGH Oxy analyser awarded the Gold award in the 2009 Golden Gas awards.
