The measurement of carbon monoxide (CO) is an important safety requirement in many non-combustion processes. In some cases extractive technologies for measuring CO are being replaced by tunable diode laser (TDL) analyzers. In a new white paper, Mettler Toledo outlines the advantages of employing TDL CO analyzers in two, non-combustion safety processes.
Over the past 10 years, one of the most significant developments in analytical measurements for the chemical and petrochemical industries has been the replacement of gas sensors that require extractive systems using TDL analyzers.
The appeal of TDLs relates to their ease of use, low maintenance and in situ measurement, according to Mettler Toledo.
TDLs for measuring various gases can improve safety and efficiency in diverse applications across the process industries. As an example, carbon monoxide TDLs are being increasingly adopted in non-combustion processes where the measurement of CO is an important safety requirement.
In a new white paper, "Safety? Think Lasers!", Mettler Toledo explains the benefits of CO TDLs and describes their application in electrostatic precipitators and in fire prevention during the production of carbon black.
