In a pulverized coal-fired boiler of a large power plant, an oxygen analyzer is essential for combustion control. Exhaust gases from the pulverized coal boiler contain a large quantity of dust and flow very fast. Oxygen analyzers that employ a sampling method may be subject to wear or clogging, resulting in increased maintenance workload and cost.
A solution to this problem is the ZR22G/ZR802G Zirconia Oxygen Analyzer that has no sampling system and utilizes a long-life sensor. A probe protector is attached to protection it against wear.
- Improves combustion efficiency for pulverized coal-fired boilers
- Ensures stable, continuous oxygen measurement
- Reduces operating cost
- Minimizes the need for equipment replacement
While heavy oil, light oil , kerosene commonly used as a boiler fuel, coal is also used because it is inexpensive and readily available. Unlike oil, coal and gas produce a large quantity of ashes when it is burned, necessitating pulverized coal-fired boilers to be equipped with an ash removal system such as a cyclone. Exhaust gases from these boilers contain a large quantity of dust (10 to 30 g/Nm3) and flow very fast as the result of the large volume of air being blown into the boiler. For oxygen measurement in large ducts, a probe with a long insertion length is used.

- A probe protector should be attached to the probe for protection against wear or damage. The probe protector should be mounted with the notch of the probe head pointing downstream in the gas flow.
- It is recommended that the detector be installed with the probe tip pointing downward. As shown in the figure, it may be installed horizontally, too. The probe head tip should not point upstream in the gas flow.

Zirconia Oxygen/Humidity Analyzer ZR22G, ZR802G
This Oxygen concentration and humidity at high temperatures consists of a ZR22G detector equipped with a long-life and highly reliable zirconia sensor, and a converter ZR802G equipped with digital communication and data log functions.
ZR22G and ZR802G can be measured directly and continuously without a sampling device. It is easy to maintain and reduce operating costs by self-diagnosis of sensor deterioration (without using calibration gas )and replacing the heater assembly on site.
Oxygen analyzers provide valuable measurements in combustion control, process quality, safety and environmental applications.
