Oxygen analyzers help improve combustion efficiency and reduce greenhouse gases

April 6, 2009
Enhanced flue gas analyzers certified for hazardous area, now offer the capability to refining and petrochemical facilities that require Class I Zone I and ATEX Exd IIB approvals. Better analysis of flue gases exiting the combustion process permits plant operators to improve the efficiencies of large boilers and process heater furnaces, and also provides immediate reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions with minimal investment. These analyzers provide information to control the fuel-to-air ratio in furnace burners, much in the same way it’s done on today’s automobiles. The X-STREAM O2 probe offers improved accuracy specifications, extended temperature capability, and now offers FM, CSA, and ATEX approvals for hazardous areas.
