Determination of Hydrogen Sulfide Content in Natural Gas, Evaluation of Containers for Preparation of Calibration Standards, and Sample Collection Procedure.
NTIS: PB 80-137854 :12 pages
The Bureau of Mines has developed a method for determining the h2s content in natural gas samples. A gas chromatograph with a flame photometric detector was used to analyze samples with h2s concentrations ranging from 5,000 ppm to a minimum detectable limit of 0.01 Ppm. A mass spectrometer was used to analyze samples containing h2s in amounts greater than 5,000 ppm. Methods are presented for preparing containers for h2s samples and for preparing standards using partial pressure and weighed standard methods. Sample collection techniques are discussed, as are analytical results which illustrate the loss of h2s while in the sample container and provide a basis for evaluating containers used for sampling and standard preparation.
