Servomex has successfully completed the first manufacture and supply of a bespoke gas analyser shelter for Reliance Industries’ Pure Terephthalic Acid (PTA) plant in Patalganga.

One of the world’s top petrochemical product manufacturers and the leading manufacture of polyester yarn and fibre, Reliance required a cutting edge solution to ensure the highest product quality while maintaining impeccable process safety in line with the company’s industry-leading standards.

Servomex delivered a turnkey solution for Reliance, which encompassed the commissioning, planning and build of the analyser house, as well as the installation of its equipment.

Servomex also supplied SERVOTOUGH OxyExact (2200) and SERVOTOUGH SpectraExact (2500) process analyser systems as part of a $3bn project to upgrade Reliance’s manufacturing sites at Patalganga and Dahej in Gujurat.

Housed within Servomex’s custom-designed analyser shelter, the OxyExact uses Servomex’s high specification paramagnetic oxygen transducer for optimum process and safety control in general and high temperature applications, while the SpectraExact photometric process analyser offers single or dual component gas analysis designed to measure corrosive, toxic and flammable sample streams.

“Not only does it demonstrate the company’s ability to build and supply a total gas analysis solution, but also to greatly exceed the solutions being proposed by our competitors”
