O2 measurement is used to safely recover flue gas containing a high concentration of CO from a converter furnace. With conventional paramagnetic oxygen analyzers, O2 concentrations are obtained through a sampling system to recovery flue gas. Therefore, there are problems with the maintenance and running costs of the sampling system, and time delays in measurement. The TDLS Laser Analyzer is the solution to all these problems.
- Eliminates the need for sampling and reduces the maintenance and running costs of the sampling system
- High-speed response, ability to apply measurement results to control the O2 concentrations, improves gas recovery rate, and reduces fuel costs through the reuse of the recovered gas
- Continuous monitoring and highly accurate O2 concentration monitoring
An oxygen converter gas recovery (OG) system is a treatment system to safely recover flue gas containing a high concentration of CO from a converter furnace. Since the recovered flue gas is reused as fuel, a slow response time results in a waste of fuel resources. That is why high-speed response and high reliability are required for O2 measurements.

The point is to use the TDLS capable of directly measuring the O2 concentrations after IDF, instead of conventional paramagnetic oxygen analyzers that perform measurements through a sampling system. The high-speed response and high accuracy of the TDLS for the converter furnace process enable high purity gas to be recovered with higher efficiency.

In the iron and steel industry, it is crucial to improve the quality of not only products but also manufacturing and operation technologies, as well as to address environmental and energy-efficiency issues. Yokogawa helps customers to create the ideal plant and evolves with them for mutual growth.
Yokogawa’s new TDLS™8000 houses all of the industry’s leading features in one robust device. The platform design is for in situ measurements which negate the need for sample extraction and conditioning.
Sampling unnecessary, installation flange is only on one side, installation cost is reduced by half while keeping high speed measurement / high speed response. It can be easily exchanged from existing equipment.
