Typically CO, CO2 and O2 measurements – or a combination – allow operators to search for the sweet spot of best achievable combustion conditions.
The starting point is often deployment of In-situ ZrO2 oxygen probes – these are the traditional, robust tools measuring directly in combustion process providing rapid measurements to be used in manual and automated combustion control.
Being able to measure CO and O2 together allows a further degree of fine tuning for maximum fuel and cost savings. CO, O2 and calculated CO2 and efficiency calculations can be provided in a single extractive compact CEMS
Measuring as close to the combustion source as possible improves the speed of response, but can mean mounting in ever increasingly aggressive conditions. In-situ or extractive TDLAS analysers
