    Measurement solution for to multi-stream by-pass system

    A large pharmaceutical plant runs a Thermal Oxidiser on plant to incinerate their solvent-containing gas streams before emission. When the oxidiser is offline, then the plant must monitor the release of solvent to the atmosphere. A ProtIR 204C fixed monitoring system was installed that continually measures 24 plant solvents, including Acetone, Cyclohexane, DCM, DMF, IPA, MIBK, Toluene and THF. Given the high levels that are possible, the system has an active dilution system, reducing the concentration of the measured gas in the analyser to levels that can be analysed simply. Chemometric modelling enables interferences from the overlapping absorption spectra to be accounted for, ensuring accurate analysis of all 24 gases.

    Gas monitoring instruments and systems for fumigation

    Sea cargo containers and wooden packing materials are fumigated to control the spreading of pest animals and micro-organisms. Fumigant gases are toxic and measurements are carried out as a health and safety precaution. Measurements are required by e.g. customs inspectors prior to opening containers, making the shipping companies responsible for carrying out measurements. Products shipped in containers may release VOCs from e.g. solvents and glues used in manufacturing process. The concentrations of vapors may be significant in the confined space of the container. While most containers originate in China and Southeast Asia, cargo container measurements are done in ports across the world, as the same gases are encountered in all ports.

    Industrial air pollution control for the electronics and electrical industry

    The world`s appetite for electronic devices - from simple household appliances to sophisticated computers - has led to rapid growth of both these industries. Typically for the electronics industry, there are large waste gas streams (up to 400,000 Nm³/h) with relatively low concentrations of different solvents. The waste gases mainly occur in coating, cleaning and etching processes during the production of semiconductors, CDs/DVDs, Blue-ray discs, DVTs, TFT-LCD and plasma displays. The electronics industry has important standards to meet regarding environmental protection. CTP complies with these requirements: From zero emission goals, to installations on the roofs of production facilities.

    pH/ORP Sensors for Metallurigical Applications

    Importance of pH Measurement - Hydrometallurgical concentrating and refining applications require pH/ORP sensors to withstand aggressive environments while maintaining accurate measurement. Processes such as cyanide leaching (e.g gold) and solvent extraction (e.g. copper, nickel, zinc) require pH and ORP to be at very specific values to yield the desired chemical species. pH may need to be controlled as precisely as ±0.05 for some processes. Even where this level of precision is needed, process environments are typically extremely aggressive to the sensor.

  • Gas detection analyzers for processing ovens & dryers

    Many industries are involved in coating products with solvent-borne materials and then employing ovens or dryers to remove the solvents from the finished product. The key hazard is an explosion from the build up of solvent vapors in the oven or dryer atmosphere. This buildup could occur by a malfunction in the production process such as: a sudden or improper amount of coating, a change in ventilation controls or excessive speed. In any of these cases, the concentration of flammable vapor has an opportunity to rise above safe levels, creating a potentially explosive mixture of vapor in air.
