World’s first traceable cryogenic LNG reference liquids developed at EffecTech.

LNG has its own unique measurement issues related to vapourisation and enrichment. In response to this, EffecTech has developed a bespoke cryostat facility for the production of cryogenic LNG reference liquids.

Case study: Ensuring confidence in liquid natural gas composition

Read the Euramet case study about EffecTech’s ISO 17025 accredited liquefier for the calibration of spectroscopic instruments, such as Raman, for measuring liquefied natural gas (LNG).

   How the Cryostat works

Direct measuring devices are less labour intensive than gas chromatographs and are often preferred for bunkering ships, floating production storage and offloading units (FPSOs), and small-scale terminals.

However, as daily calibrations cannot be carried out, initial and regular validations of direct measuring devices are vital to ensure no mismeasurements are made.

EffecTech can carry out ISO 17025 accredited calibrations and validations of your instruments using our bespoke facility by producing cryogenic reference liquids.
