The FLXA402 offers multiple connection possibilities, eliminating the need for multiple analyzers and providing greater flexibility. This four-wire analyzer includes a color HMI and an easy touchscreen operation with a simple menu structure in 9 languages for simple and efficient setup and configuration.
With its modular design, the FLXA402 analyzer offers a range of measurement choices with the respective sensor module, including pH/ORP, resistivity/conductivity (SC), inductive conductivity (ISC), percent concentration, dissolved oxygen (DO), and 4-20mA input. Dual sensor measurements offer additional functionalities, such as a calculated data function that can be customized.
The FLXA402 can connect up to five sensors, realizing interruption-free measurement even during maintenance. Multiple sensor measurement offers additional functionalities including a variety of calculated data as well as the option to program the analyzer as a redundant system.
With the FLXA402, one analyzer can accept: pH/ORP, Contacting Conductivity (SC), Inductive Conductivity (ISC), Dissolved Oxygen (DO), and Optical Dissolved Oxygen Sensors with self-diagnostic capabilities. Additional functions include:
The FLEXA™ series analyzer provides improved operability with intuitive touchscreen operation, featuring a clear display and user-friendly indication with 9 languages. The display of sensor status and estimated maintenance time improve efficiency. The interactive screen is housed in a robust aluminum die-cast housing.
The FLEXA™ series analyzer features a modular design with replaceable sensor modules, enabling the construction of a variety of systems. FLXA402 allows for the connection of up to five possible sensors resulting in a reduction in CAPEX and OPEX.
Preparing for the Future
Industrial automation is moving toward SMART products, with sensors changing from analog to digital SMART. This transition can affect plant operations and take time to fully implement.
In addition to being a high performance standalone analyzer, the FLXA402 is also a component of the new Yokogawa SENCOM 4.0 Platform, a SMART sensor system that simplifies in field maintenance and calibration. With the SENCOM 4.0 Platform, upgrading to the next generation SMART product is easy, and an upgrade transfer can be done at any time with little impact on operations.
SD card or Ethernet for easy data transfer and remote service, allowing for more in-depth process analysis.
The treatment of wastewater from pulp and paper plants is a serious environmental concern. Yokogawa's submersion holder with an ultrasonic+air-jet cleaner (customized product) can reduce the manual cleaning frequency to just once every one or two months.
Industry:Pulp & Paper
Wastewater from electroplating facilities and certain types of chemical plants contains toxic forms of hexavalent chromium such as chromate and dichromate. The hexavalent chromium in this wastewater must be reduced before the water can be discharged. This requires a two-step process: hexavalent chromium (CR6) is reduced to trivalent chromium (CR3); and CR3 is precipitated as chromium hydroxide.
Industry:Electrical and Electronics
Continuous technology improvement is ongoing in the pulp & paper industry to obtain the best possible performance. The improved plant performance translates to the higher quality improvement and lower cost, and simultaneously environmental friendly plant operation.
Power plant boiler houses designed to burn coal or high sulfur oil are required by Federal and State pollution regulations to "scrub" (remove) sulfur dioxide from flue gasses to meet emission limits. SO2 in flue gasses is known to be harmful to the environment, as it is one contributor to the formation of acid rain. pH control is critical for the proper functioning of the scrubber system.
In the past, the boiler feed tank systems in sugar factories had to be checked several times a day to make sure there were no sugar solution leaks. This was a very laborious process and, as continuous monitoring was not possible, monitoring results were not reliable. When a leak occurred, recovery operations were very costly and time-consuming.

In flue gas desulfurization systems that use magnesium hydroxide (Mg(OH)2) slurry, the consumption of the desulfurization agent (Mg(OH)2) is controlled by using online pH analyzers. A great concern in the pH measurement is heavy staining of the pH electrodes by the Mg(OH)2 slurry. To ensure accurate measurement, frequent cleaning of the electrodes with an acid is required, adding to both maintenance workload and cost.
Most of the Yokogawa sensors come labeled with the corresponding terminals to connect them to. In this video we show you how to connect a SENCOM pH sensor to the FLXA402 liquid analyzer.
