Gasifier

Hydrocarbons contained in the slurry suspension react with oxygen in the high-temperature conditions of the gasifier to form syngas, a mixture of hydrogen and carbon monoxide. To ensure maximum conversion of the slurry, the temperature within the gasifier needs to be kept at an optimum level.

By monitoring the temperature throughout the gasifier, plant operators can control the process to obtain full conversion of the hydrocarbons in the slurry. It also means overheating is avoided, producing significant savings from energy efficiency.

Control of the gasifier temperature depends on real-time, precision measurements. This data supports process efficiency, reducing the cost of energy required, and ensuring optimum conversion of the slurry to syngas.
