The Mustang Intelligent Vaporizer Sample Conditioning System– Model 3 (MIV3®) provides a fresh spot gas sample from a Liquefied Natural Gas stream for non-custody transfer applications. The MIV3 operates manually and delivers an Analytically Accurate® sample through controlled vaporization, accumulation, and homogenization of a multiple stage system.
VAPORIZATION & REMIXING STAGES
VAPORIZING: Available in a single-path design. The MIV3 flash vaporizes liquid samples for introduction into gas analysis systems. Liquid samples are maintained near line conditions until reaching a flash chamber within the vaporizer, preventing pre-vaporization. The energy for vaporization is provided by an electric cartridge heater with sufficiently large surface area to maintain a stable gas temperature throughout the process and send the sample to the Mustang® Accumulator for restructuring.
ACCUMULATING: The Mustang® Accumulator Cylinder is designed with a special impingement tube to aid in the absorption of pressure pulsations and homogenization of gasified LNG.
A vapor return bypass flow control system is controlled by an armored flowmeter with a valve.The vapor is sent to the vapor return or flare.
PRESSURE REGULATING: This system uses a non-heated regulator to reduce the pressure to the sample cylinders.
