Each Servomex gas analyser will be installed in its own cubicle with an appropriate sampling system and all necessary pipework, ready for connection in the appropriate area of the plant.

In addition to Servomex’s world-leading experience in offer reliable and accurate process analysers suitable for different and tough applications, Chematur selected Servomex on proven experience in the design and build of TDI analyser systems, as well as the ability to provide industry-best levels of service and support to the project.

“We have been chosen not simply on the acknowledged quality of our instruments, but in our ability to deliver a complete gas analysis solution that ranges from the design and build of the system to providing ‘local-for-local’ service and support in India.”
