Photoionisation detectors for VOCs

22 August, 2007

Third-generation photoionisation detector (PID)-based instruments, the MiniRAE 3000 and ppbRAE 3000 are suitable for applications in industrial settings, environmental monitoring, indoor air quality and hazardous materials response applications. The products are intended for use where hydrocarbon-based chemicals pose a toxic threat. They can be used for both leak detection and industrial safety. The instruments both have intrinsic safety certifications for use in hazardous environments in the US and Canada.

Gas analysis in combustion processes

21 July, 2006

The Rosemount Analytical OxyBalance oxygen display and averaging system is used for improving gas analysis in large combustion applications. It provides vital oxygen (O2) data that helps operators set ideal fuel-to-air ratios and effectively balance individual burners or sets of burners. The system provides both the averaging and burner variability information that is critical to operators - ultimately minimising wasted resources and optimising plant efficiency.


Portable aerosol particle counter
