LDS 6 DIODE LASER CONTINOUS GAS ANALYZER
The basic design of the diode laser gas analyzer LDS 6 enables further opportunities
in process gas analytics and continuous emission monitoring. The major part of the
benefits the in-situ approach is introducing belongs to the simple fact that the
measurement is performed non-intrusively and in real-time – without any disturbance
or delay due to gas sampling or gas conditioning.
The total benefit depends on the individual process. In almost any case, the elegant
method leads to a higher efficiency and less efforts for installation and maintenance.
As a consequence of the fast in-situ measuring the profitability and the
environmental compatibility of most processes can be increased.
Besides emission monitoring there is a set of industrial applications where diode laser
is already established as a standard tool for process optimisation. Among the most
important market segments in the process industries one will find, today:
-Power generation / combustion industry
Surveillance and optimisation of DeNOx plants by measuring the ammonia slip behind
SCR and SNCR DeNOx installations
-Thermal waste treatment:
Primary combustion control by fast measurements of the oxygen concentration and
the gas temperature in furnaces and boilers.
Surveillance and optimisation of flue gas cleaning systems by measuring the waste
gas concentrations before and after gas cleaning steps.
-Internal combustion engines:
Measuring the ammonia slip behind DeNOx catalysts in the waste gas system of
engine test beds
Immediate and intrinsic save (Ex i) concentration measurement in combustible gases
like CO and CH4 or surveillance of the oxygen level in process streams, tanks or
Fast and non-intrusive surveillance of moisture in corrosive gas mixtures.
