According to the US Department of Energy, industry accounts for about a third of all energy used in the US. Despite the recent drop in energy prices, energy remains the second leading cost pressure (behind only raw materials) affecting manufacturers. Some of the biggest culprits are incinerators, crackers, process heaters and other energy-intensive combustion-based equipment. The harsh operating conditions associated with combustion analysis applications can eat up a sensor in no time, resulting in inaccurate and unreliable sensor measurements. This can make it nearly impossible to control these processes adequately. However, new analysis techniques, such as tuneable diode laser spectrosco
