- Fuel gas
The various qualities, hazards and applications of gaseous fuels, such as oxy-acetylene, oxy-gasoline, oxy-hydrogen and others.
- Gas contaminant removal processes
The processes used to remove contaminants such as mercury, nitrogen and helium from natural gas; the techniques such as activated carbon and molecular sieves and the recovery of the removed material if it is commercially viable.
- Test gas purity
Test the purity of the gas using specific testing equipment.
- Test chemical samples
Perform the testing procedures on the already prepared chemical samples, by using the necessary equipment and materials. Chemical sample testing involves operations such as pipetting or diluting schemes.
- Operate gas extraction equipment
Operate the equipment used for oxygen and nitrogen extraction equipment such as compressors, fractionating columns, heat exchangers and purifying towers.
- Ensure equipment maintenance
Ensure that the equipment required for operations is regularly checked for faults, that routine maintenance tasks are performed, and that repairs are scheduled and performed in the case of damage or flaws.
- Handle gas cylinders
Grip gas cylinders in a safe manner and ensure they are compliant with safety and health regulations.
- Document analysis results
Document on paper or on electronic devices the process and the results of the samples analysis performed.
- Schedule production
Schedule the production aiming maximum profitability while still maintaining the company KPIs in cost, quality, service and innovation.
- Use chemical analysis equipment
Use the laboratory equipment such as Atomic Absorption equimpent, PH and conductivity meters or salt spray chambre.
- Tend compressor engine
Tend the gas compression engines by starting them, monitoring the process of gas compression and performing small maintenance tasks.
- Monitor valves
Monitor and accordingly adjust the valves in order to allow a specific amount of liquids (such as ammonia sulfuric acid or viscous soap) or steam into the mixer or machine.
- Optimise production processes parameters
Optimise and maintain the parameters of the production process such as flow, temperature or pressure.
- Ensure correct gas pressure
Ensure the necessary, usually constant, pressure of gas which is part of a machine or tool, such as torching equipment, used to process metal workpieces during metal fabrication processes.
