Advantages of using TDL analyzers for safety monitoring in combustion within HPI applications

From refining to chemical production processes, heaters play an essential role in hydrocarbon processing applications.

Jenkins, R., Servomex

From refining to chemical production processes, heaters play an essential role in hydrocarbon processing applications. They produce very high temperatures through the reaction of fuel with oxygen (O2) from air, then transfer this energy to process fluids via heat exchangers. This process has a high level of fuel consumption; it produces significant amounts of emissions and creates a potential safety hazard for personnel and equipment. Controlling the combustion process delivers considerable benefits, including lower fuel costs, reduced emissions and decreased risk of explosion. This control is based on an optimized air-to-fuel ratio, which, in turn, leads to efficient fuel consumption. Befo
