Oxygen analyzers provide valuable measurements in combustion control, process quality, safety and environmental applications. These are used in a variety of measurement scenarios including, but not limited to, boiler trimming in power plants, furnace optimization in refinery and petrochemical applications, process safety in vent headers, and product quality in ethylene production.
Yokogawa offers a full range of product solutions including an industry leading zirconia oxygen probe series, as well as a line of cutting edge tunable diode laser spectrometers.
Yokogawa’s new TDLS8000 houses all of the industry’s leading features in one robust device. The platform design is for in situ measurements which negates the need for sample extraction and conditioning.
The ZR probe's in-situ measurement method does not require any process conditioning or extractive sampling. This reduces maintenance costs and allows faster measurement response to changes in the process.
The AV550G Multi Channel Oxygen Analyzer System allows for measurements on up to eight ZR22 probes simultaneously. The ZR probe's in-situ measurement method does not require any process conditioning or extractive sampling, reducing maintenance costs and resulting in faster measurement response to changes in the process.
The ZR202 transmitter/detector combines benefits of the ZR402 remote analyzer and the ZR22 detector into an intelligent, rebuildable, low-cost measurement device for in-situ humidity measurement.
The OX400 is a low level zirconia oxygen analyzer that is capable of measuring a wide range of concentrations, from 0-10 ppm up to 0-100 vol%O2.
The TDLS220 is specifically designed for accurate, reliable and low maintenance measurement of volume percent (vol%) oxygen (O2) for safety and process applications. It is a viable alternative to paramagnetic O2 analyzers.
Yokogawa's Zirconia oxygen detector systems offer a variety of calibration units for quick, easy control of calibration gases giving the user simple, accurate calibration.
WZ-H cables are compatible with all ZR22, ZR402, and AV550G model Oxygen Analyzer Systems. The purpose of these cables is to transmit the signal from the sensor/detector to the analyzer. Additionally, the cabling provides for electrical input to the heater assembly within the detector for cell temperature control.
The accumulation of fly ash on the zirconia cell affects its ability to measure oxygen concentration. Fly ash and its constituents can reduce the life of the zirconia cell and affect the cells response time to changes in gas concentration. Yokogawa's large surface area sintered metal filters are designed to keep particulate and ash off the measurement cell.
Yokogawa’s new TDLS8100 continues to house all of the industry’s leading features from the TDLS8000, but now only requiring a single-flange installation. An in-situ measurement with a probe removes the requirement for sample extraction and conditioning and can be used in a variety of aggressive process conditions.
Ingress of oxygen into a finished beverage container can affect the taste and shelf life of the product. The greater the concentration of oxygen in the container's headspace or dissolved in the solution itself, the greater the flavor degradation. The presence of oxygen causes negative quality characteristics in beverages such as beer and wine.
Humidity is a good indicator of drying progress as it expresses the amount of vapor in the carrier gas stream. Humidity affects the dryness of the solids with which it comes into contact. Therefore, humidity control is crucial for final product quality in drying processes such as in food manufacturing, tobacco production, and malt drying. Challenges vary from too much drying, which can cause cracking, to too little drying, which results in poor taste and texture quality.
Package boilers require less fuel and electric power to operate and are widely used in the pharmaceutical, food, ceramic, and other industries. A package boiler operates more efficiently if the oxygen concentration in the flue gas is reduced.
A furnace for heating slabs needs to be operated under low oxygen conditions at high temperatures of 1000°C and above to prevent oxidation of the steel. The measurement of oxygen concentrations in the furnace is essential in this process. (AN 10M01F01-03E)
The ammonia (NH3) gas is injected to remove the NOx and thus reduce the NOx concentration in the stack flue gas. With conventional NH3 analyzers that perform measurements indirectly, NH3 concentrations are obtained through a sampling system. Therefore, there are problems with the maintenance and running costs of the sampling system, and time delays in measurement. The TDLS8000 Laser Analyzer is the solution to all these problems.
In a hot blast stove, the by-product gas produced in a coke oven is burned to preheat the air blast for the blast furnace. To improve the combustion efficiency and conserve energy in a hot blast stove, it is essential to be able to control combustion by measuring and adjusting the oxygen concentration in the exhaust gases.
Combustion furnaces such as heating furnaces and boilers in plants include various sizes and types, and serve as energy sources, that is, they are cores in all production activities. Because a large amount of fuel such as gas or fuel oil is consumed in plants, their combustion efficiency directly affects the performance and running cost of the plants.
Yokogawa’s new TDLS8000 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. The non-contacting sensor allows for a variety of process types including corrosive, abrasive and condensing. The first generation platform has been proven in many others for the measurements of O2, CO, CH4, NH3, H2O and many more NIR absorbing gases. This second generation platform has improved reliability and ease of installation and maintenance while still meeting or exceeding designed application demands.
