  PROCEAS® H2 for direct measurements of Hydrogen and LASERCEM ®n for CEM's analysis - introduced at   ACHEMA 2015

 

 

AP2E INTRODUCES “PROCEAS® H2” FOR DIRECT CONTINUOUS MEASUREMENTS OF HYDROGEN

The first device in the world able to measure hydrogen in infrared by resonant cavity laser spectroscopy.
The “ProCeas® H2 Trace analyzer” enables direct continuous measurements of low level of hydrogen in chlorine matrix or other gas for real-time monitoring and control of industrial processes. This instrumentation enables a quantitative monitoring with LOD up to 3ppm.

In Achema AP2E will also present the “LASERCEM®” an easy-to-use solution for CEM’S on-line gaz analysis.
The LaserCEM is a complete pre-calibrated multi-component (NO, SO2, CO, HCl, CO2, H2O, H2S, NH3, N2O, COS, SO3, CH4, HF) laser infrared spectrometer for CEM’s analysis: waste incinerators plants, refineries, cement plants.

  A Certified Automated Measuring System for Continuous Stack and Process   Monitoring
  - combustion plants within the European Union must be continuously monitored


The automatic emission monitoring systems required must comply with EN 14181 which comprises three quality classes (QAL1 to QAL3) and an annual function check (AST).
The idea behind this regulation is to standardize methods and equipment in order to obtain comparable results all across the European Union, which normally may differ because of the type of analysis system related reasons.

Consequently, only analysis systems approved and certified according to EN 15267 are accepted by the supervising bodies.

The flexible, scalable controllers are certified up to SIL 4, in accordance with CENELEC, and are characterized by their openness and easy programming. The safety systems also make an important contribution to a new development from Westfälische Lokomotivfabrik Reuschling: the modular concept locomotive R500C.

Walter Schreiber (Reuschling) explains:

"The controllers offer a flexibility that is significantly higher than that of other devices,
and they are a mature system. And above all, at HIMA we have contact persons – people with whom we can work. For our custom concepts we must develop solutions together, and that can only happen in a partnership-based dialogue."

  JUMO digiLine opens the door to sensortechnology 4.0 - Intelligent, bus-capable connection system   for digital sensors - October 2015


With digiLine, JUMO presents a new bus-capable connection system
for digital sensors. The system enables the creation of intelligent sensor networks. All important measurement parameters of liquid analysis can be measured with a single system. A new pH probe and a redox probe were developed for the market launch. In addition, proven JUMO products can be integrated for turbidity and oxygen measurements.
JUMO digiLine pH and redox sensors are delivered as a unit consisting of the sensor with reusable electronics. Once the pH or redox component has become completely worn, the connection is separated and the electronics can continue to be used with a new sensor.
The JUMO digiLine sensor network increases the number of sensors that can be connected to the JUMO AQUIS touch multiparameter measuring and control devices. Furthermore, JUMO digiLine sensors can be integrated directly in the JUMO mTRON T automation system without an additional transmitter. At present, no comparable solution is being offered by any other manufacturer.The system DSM software (Digital Sensor Management) is also completely new.
The necessary parameterization and calibration of the pH or redox probe can be carried out conveniently in the laboratory using a PC or laptop, a USB interface converter, and the JUMO digiLine software. Calibration data and the evaluation of the sensor status are stored directly in the sensor and enable seamless documentation over the entire life cycle.

  Utilize process gases instead of flaring them - The CWD 2005 series calorimeters determine    the heating    value and the Wobbe index of various gas types

 


Many process-related operations in the industry produce process gases
that in the past have often been regarded as by-products and have been flared at the expense of the environment.
This practice is changing in light of growing energy awareness.

A redundant analysis system
consisting of CWD 2005 calorimeters with fully-integrated gas analysis
for CO, CH4, C2+ ensures efficient, environmentally sound combustion of process gases
in hot-rolling furnaces.
