On-line, at-line, in-line and other near-real time monitoring systems that measure fuel gas characteristics such as the heating value are prevalent in the natural gas and fuel gas industries. The installation and operation of particular systems vary on the specific objectives, process type, regulatory requirements, and internal performance requirements needed by the user. This protocol is intended to provide guidelines for standardized start-up procedures, operating procedures, and quality assurance practices for on-line, at-line, in-line and other near-real time heating value monitoring systems.View Less
1.1 This practice is for the determination of heating value in high methane content gaseous fuels such as natural gas using an on-line/at-line gas chromatograph.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
