Examples of applications

  • Creating fuel mixtures for testing calorific values
  • Odorisation of natural gas
  • Mixing gases for filling cylinders with specialty gases
  • Calibration of domestic gas meters
  • Off-shore, e.g. applications within exploration rig laboratories and for measuring gas permeation across marine riser systems

Application notes

Controlled supply of odorant to natural gas

Natural gas is virtually odourless. The typical smell originates from THT, which is a compound that has been added artificially to commercial natural gas. Its aim is to act as a ‘warning agent’ in case of a leakage.

Oil Additives for Ship Engines

Additives play an important role to optimize the efficiency of the fuel oil and also to prevent engine damage. In close cooperation with a manuafcturer of petroleum additives and several ship-companies Bronkhorst developed the ideal dosing unit for these kind of additives for heavy fuel oil ship-engines.

Other markets

Bronkhorst instruments are used for numerous applications in many different markets. They can be found in laboratories, universities, industry, production and pilot plants and even in areas or installations with risk of explosion. A substantial part of the produced instruments is integrated in manufacturing machines or equipment of so called OEM-customers (Original Equipment Manufacturers).
