Real-time gas analysis enhances efficiency, safety, throughput, product quality, and ensures environmental compliance. Gas analysis can utilize various technologies such as tunable diode laser spectroscopy, zirconia oxygen analysis, infrared gas analysis, stack gas analysis, dust monitoring, process gas chromatography, continuous emissions monitoring systems (CEMS), hydrogen purity analysis and gas density systems. Selecting the correct technology is critical to measurement accuracy, reliability, and durability.
Yokogawa's years of application expertise enables you to save time, money, and resources by collaboratively selecting the optimal gas analyzer solution.
Tunable Diode Laser Spectrometer (TDLS) is a laser-based gas analyzer with fast-update optical analysis.
Process gas chromatographs are used for separating and analyzing chemical compounds in the gas phase of on-line industrial processes.
Oxygen analyzers provide valuable measurements in combustion control, process quality, safety and environmental applications.
Gas density analyzers and detectors provide continuous measurement of gas density as well as several other valuable parameters, including specific gravity and percent concentration.
NDIR analyzers allow for high sensitivity measurement of a variety of gas components including CO2, CO, CH4, NO, and SO2. Additionally an O2 measurement can be made with a built-in paramagnetic analyzer or external zirconia analyzer.
The U.S. refineries represent approximately 23 percent of the world's petroleum production, and the United States has the largest refining capacity in the world. Petroleum refining is an industry, which is undergoing intense amounts of scrutiny in the United States from regulatory agencies and environmental groups.
High volumes of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), typified by trichloroethylene and tetrachloroethylene, have long been used in various industrial fields for their high degrees of industrial usefulness. On the other hand, there is a growing awareness of environment preservation today, and of the fact that we face serious environmental pollution due to such harmful VOCs.
The EPA rule, 40 CFR 63 Subparts CC and UUU, is forcing refineries to monitor flares. Fortunately, modern analyzer technology makes it possible to meet the requirements, generate the necessary reports, and stay in compliance.
Here’s how to select the right analyzer to meet these demands.
