Secondary Air Flow Overview: The need for accurate, repeatable & reliable combustion air measurements in power generation plants is critical to efficient operation and safety throughout the entire facility and processes. Accurate secondary air flow measurement to the burners is critical for maintaining the proper air to fuel ratio, resulting in more complete and stable combustion, better performance and lower emissions. Coal-fired power plant applications pose a number of challenges to obtaining these critical flow measurements including large ducts, limited metering runs, poor velocity and temperature profiles, vibration and high temperatures.

Many large combustion plants are now required to monitor mass emissions of major pollutants and to do so requires an accurate measurement of stack gas velocity. The VCEM 5100 is certified to EN 15267 part 3 QAL 1 for all industrial processes including waste incineration. It has several key advantages, firstly the sensors optics are not in contact with the hot and dusty environment, the VCEM 5100 can monitor gases at temperatures exceeding 10000C and the analyser requires minimal maintenance. The VCEM 5100 can be used in extremely dust environments such as SCR’s when dust loadings exceed 10g/m3. The VCEM 5100 is in full compliance with EN/ISO 16911 part 2.
