June 5, 2015 -  ABB opened a new facility that will build fully integrated analyzer shelters for downstream oil and gas industry customers. The 40,000 sq. ft. Analytical Systems Integration Facility will manufacture integrated shelters containing analyzer systems that are designed to help oil refineries and petrochemical plants maximize product quality. 

“This new facility is part of ABB’s continued expansion to serve our customers in this region and in the oil, gas and chemical industries, to provide them with the local resources, proven technology and access to global expertise they need to help achieve their production and system performance goals,” commented John Quirke, Analytical Systems Integration site manager.

The facility will provide complete analytical solutions, from initial engineering through system manufacturing, testing, field start-up and support. ABB combines best systems practices with stringent conformance to government environmental requirements, to produce Continuous Emissions Monitoring Systems that pass certification and meet plant analyzer and electrical requirements. The team at this facility will have access to ABB’s complete line of more than 50 different analyzer products, including gas chromatographs, continuous liquid and gas analyzers, as well as Reid Vapor Pressure, TDL and FTIR analyzers for integration into larger systems as specified by their customers.
