RTS Africa Technologies principal H2Scan opens new Environmental Conditioning Laboratory to further ‘refine’ hydrogen detection in gas process streams

Hydrocarbon fuels are essential for our daily existence. However, extracting usable fuels from crude oil is a complex process in which hydrogen plays a cardinal role, as the correct levels of hydrogen in a refinery process stream largely determine the quality of the final product. “At RTS Africa Technologies, we have been distributing H2Scan hydrogen detection and analysis products for the past decade. In particular, H2Scan’s Hy-Optima range of products have numerous applications in South Africa’s oil refineries,” says Ian Fraser, MD of RTS Africa Group, a Tshwane-based company specialising…

Extracting dust – and great value – RTS Africa’s spin filters provide mines with a cost-effective dust extraction solution

Often the simplest solutions are the best, and leading engineering solutions provider RTS Africa’s inertial spin filters are a very good example of this universal truth in action. They employ a basic principle of physics very effectively, using a vortex to remove 98% of all dust particles down to 15 microns, 93 % of particulate matter above 10 microns and for that which is above 5 microns, a spin filter will remove 80% of all airborne particles. “This makes RTS spin filters eminently suitable for filtering air supplied into MCC…

RTS Africa’s Hy-Optima hydrogen analysers: optimised refinery operations, product and quality

The basic process of refining crude oil – fractional distillation – into useable product is reasonably simple. Crude oil contains various hydrocarbon compounds all of which condense at varying temperatures. The crude oil is heated in a column and the condensates are drawn off at different levels to produce – amongst others – raw petroleum, diesel and jet fuel products. However, it is after these fuels in their basic or ‘raw’ form have been produced, that the complexity and challenge arises. Each of these fuels or fractions has to be…
