The 961-AG analyzer system measures the broadband absorption of H2S in the
ultraviolet (UV) region of the electromagnetic spectrum. The UV radiation is supplied
from a highly stable deuterium broadband source and is transmitted to and from the
measurement cell via UV fibre optic cables. The measurement cell is a specific optical
path length through which a sample of the acid gas flows. Light from the source is
transmitted to the measurement cell via a fibre optic cable. After passing through the
gas space in the measurement cell, it is transmitted to the spectrometer by a second
fibre optic cable. The CCD array coverts the light into electrical signals. These signals
represent the intensity of the spectral distribution within the band of interest. The spectral
data is acquired from the spectrometer by the system computer which calculates the
concentration of the H2S.
Galvanic Applied Sciences, Inc. uses a spectrometer with a grating efficiency
optimized in the spectral region where the species of interest absorb 200-400nm.
Coupled to the grating is a detection system best suited for the desired analysis in
terms of sensitivity and resolution while minimizing dark current and stray light noise.
To achieve this, a 2048 element CCD detector is employed.
output SignalS
The H2S concentration is output as a 4 to 20 mA analog signal. The analog signal is
isolated and may be self powered or loop powered. Remote indication of an alarm
condition is provided for by dry (potential free) form C (normally open, common,
normally closed) relay contacts.
SyStem computeR
The system computer controls the operation of the analyzer, performs the data processing
and calculation and provides the graphical user interface for the analyzer system.
The computer is mounted to the door of the analyzer enclosure. All pertinent analyzer
information and user controlled functions are presented on this display. This allows the
user to monitor the analyzer functions without opening the cabinet door.

The preferred location for the analyzer is as near as practical to the sample point on
the acid gas line. A support structure to which the framework supplied with the ana-
lyzer system is mounted must be provided by the user. The analyzer system should be
protected from direct exposure to the weather.
