No More Purge Gas Required for New Tunable Diode Lasers for Combustion Processes
A new generation of TDLs not only offers exceptional fuel costs savings, but eliminates the need for process side purge gas.
Refineries, petrochemical, fertilizer and power plants worldwide have large numbers of combustion processes in operation, from process heaters and fired heaters to package boilers and large steam turbines. Whenever a process fluid needs to be heated as part of a chemical reaction, or there is a requirement for steam generation, there will be a combustion process at its heart.
This paper presents a review of the general anatomy of a typical combustion process; describing each zone and its function, before discussing some of the challenges of combustion measurement and how modern TDL analyzers such as METTLER TOLEDO’s GPro 500 and its range of process adaptions offer many advantages over typical combustion analysis technologies.
