A high-efficiency combustion furnace, improved IR cell design and a robust, rugged design make the analyzer a resource for any laboratory needing fast and accurate analysis of sulfur and/or carbon in organic materials.
Over time and after many sample analyses, byproducts such as metal oxide dust accumulate in the combustion furnace area of the analyzer, resulting in erratic results or even component failure.
Measurements of fly ash concentrations in flue gas indicate effective removal of solid emissions by precipitators and especially the efficiency of purification systems of circulating fluidized bed combustion furnace. The chemical analyses of ash samples show a rather uniform composition, except the sample of 27.11.2002 from the Eesti PP after electrostatic precipitators (see Table 1).
Another solution is to install a "closed" or "sealed" combustion furnace or water heater, which draws its combustion air directly from outside through a pipe and expels the fumes outside as well.
An improvement in energy efficiency, such as that provided by the residential pulse combustion furnace, can be expected to reduce both costs to the consumer and emissions into the environment.
Combustion Orientation--A notable design difference between the three types of systems is the orientation of the combustion furnace. While the static design has a horizontal combustion furnace, the others operate with a vertical arrangement.
The Thermtronix exhibit featured several furnace designs as well as information on its new twin high-bay combustion furnace, which was first introduced in 1997.
Combining a high-temperature combustion furnace, a self-contained acidification module and a highly sensitive C[O.sub.2] detector, the CM150 can be used to analyze virtually any sample type and concentration with a precision unmatched by other analytical techniques.
