NEO Monitors unveils the industry’s most compact CO combustion analyzer
suitable for the most demanding environments. LaserGas™ III CO includes
measurement of CH4, H2O and temperature in one single unit designed to
Based on decades of experience and customer feedback, NEO Monitors has
designed an Ex-d certified tunable diode laser (TDLS) analyzer. The
instrument is based on the proven LaserGas™ III platform, and is for those
that need CO-monitoring in combustion processes. In combination with
LaserGas™ III SP O2, the analyzer is the answer to any combustion process
where increased explosion safety is a requirement. This is especially
valid for installations in oil & gas- and chemical industries.
– The new analyzer ensures that our customers need less investments in
costly systems for purging and safety of the traditional Ex-p type of
instruments. This also reduce operating and maintenance cost
significantly, says Ketil Gorm Paulsen, CEO at NEO Monitors.
The LaserGas™ III CO combustion analyzer is also capable of measuring CH4,
H2O and temperature. Designed according to IEC61508 and Ex-d makes it
suitable for safety critical applications in any environment from
unclassified to zone 1-installatations.
– We hope that this new analyzer makes it easier for the industries to
adopt to TDLS as the preferred technology for combustion control. Our
customers will now have one compact solution that they can use at any
location of a plant. The solution is suitable from short measuring paths
up to measuring paths of 25 meters and above, says Paulsen.
The LaserGas™ III SP family of analyzers are now adapted to combustion
applications. With two compact analyzers, it offers the possibility to
monitor all main components in a combustion process, which is O2, CO, CH4,
H2O and temperature. Typical applications that will benefit from the new
solution are FCC units, package boilers, process heaters, electrostatic
precipitators, VCM waste gas recovery, reformer gas, incineration, etc.
