Customer Challenge

Improving combustion efficiency and reducing/eliminating harmful stack emissions

Solution

Yokogawa oxygen analyzers measure the oxygen (O2) concentration in flue gas. With this information, the air-fuel ratio can be adjusted to optimize combustion. Likewise, our stack gas analyzers can be used to reduce harmful emissions by measuring the concentrations of nitrogen oxide (NOX) and sulfur oxide (SOX) in stack gas.

Enabling Technologies

SG750 Stack Gas Analyzer

The SG750 stack gas analyzer consists of an infrared gas analyzer unit, a zirconia oxygen analyzer unit, and a sampling unit, and can simultaneously measure up to five components: NOX, SO2, CO2, CO, and O2.

 

Customer Challenge

Reducing the emission of CO, NOX, dioxins, and other substances into the atmosphere by burning off residual gas components in the stack gas

Solution

Yokogawa gas analyzers measure the oxygen concentration in the stack gas so that adjustments can be made in the O2 supply that will improve combustion efficiency and burn off more residual gas components.

Customer Challenge

Minimizing the difference between the planned load and the actual amount of waste loaded into an incinerator. The actual amount depends on the waste type and condition.

Solution

The human interface station (HIS) for the Yokogawa CENTUM distributed control system (DCS) displays a trend graph in which curves are plotted indicating the planned and actual (cumulative weight) incinerator load. If there is any divergence from the planned load, the operator can adjust the stoker speed accordingly.

Overview:

Seawater leak detection is the post-condensation water quality management processes. Damage to the ion exchange resin, which deionizes the supplied water, is also monitored during this process, and both of these applications are executed by a conductivity analyzer.

Overview:

Cogeneration systems that improve overall energy utilization by simultaneously generating electricity and heat from a single fuel source have been in the news a lot recently. Distributed generation equipment, a type of cogeneration system, is driven by a gas or diesel engine. Advantages of the gas engine, which is widely used, include high thermal efficiency and secure fuel supply.
