A vital process for generating high temperatures

Process heaters and furnaces are integral to many hydrocarbon processing and power generation applications. They are designed to allow fuel and air to react together, producing extremely high gas temperatures. In doing so, they use large quantities of fuel, generate emissions and can create a safety hazard for plant and personnel alike.

Optimization is vital for efficiency and safety

The key to combustion control in process heaters and furnaces is to optimize the air-to-fuel ratio. Using excess oxygen (air) leads to cooler burning, significantly reducing efficiency and increasing emissions. However, a low-oxygen, fuel-rich situation is potential source of explosions. Keeping the combustion reaction at the optimum point ensures safe operation while reducing both fuel costs and emissions.

We have a choice of technologies to fit your application

Servomex provides a choice of analyzer technologies to support effective combustion control. Using a close-coupled extractive sampling principle, the SERVOTOUGH FluegasExact 2700 combines proven Zirconia sensing for oxygen and Thick Film Catalytic sensing for combustibles. This delivers an effective solution in a single analyzer. The SERVOTOUGH Laser 3 Plus Combustion uses Tunable Diode Laser (TDL) technology for in-situ measurements of oxygen, carbon monoxide, or both carbon monoxide and methane. This provides an average measurement across the flue, and is especially effective in supporting safety.
