Application Notes

Application Note - Acid Dewpoint Temperature MeasurementMEASURING ACID DEWPOINT TEMPERATURE TO IMPROVE EMISSIONS AND EFFICIENCY  

Measurements of the Acid Dewpoint Temperature (ADT) are important for combustion efficiency, environmental compliance and process optimisation on a variety of coal and oil-fired processes. The Lancom 200 portable analyser provides valuable tools for ADT measurement.

Application Note - Coal Handling SafetySTRENGTHENING PLANT SAFETY IN COAL GRINDING MILLS AND STORAGE SILOS WITH CARBON MONOXIDE MONITORING

Risks of unwanted combustion – potentially causing injury, damage and downtime – occur everywhere that coal is handled, processed or stored. Safe coal handling practices are designed to ensure that the fuel remains intact throughout its journey from the mine until the point at which it is ignited in the boiler.

Application Note - Flare Stack MonitoringADVANTAGES OF THERMAL IMAGING FOR EFFECTIVE FLARE STACK MONITORING

Flare stacks are used in the chemical and petrochemical industries to safely dispose of excess gases through combustion. These may be unwanted waste gases, or flammable gases released to prevent unplanned over-pressurising of plant equipment. Simply venting these untreated hydrocarbons into the air creates an environmental hazard.

Application Note - Temperature Measurements in Reheat FurnacesTEMPERATURE MEASUREMENT IN METAL REHEAT FURNACES

Reheat furnaces bring cold metal to the correct temperature for rolling, extruding or forging. For optimum quality, and to reduce wastage, the temperature should be uniform throughout the product, which requires accurate temperature monitoring.

Application Note - COKE OVEN TEMPERATURE MEASUREMENTCOKE OVEN TEMPERATURE MEASUREMENT

High-quality metallurgical coke is a vital raw material for iron and steel production, affecting the furnace operation and standard of the hot metal. It is produced by heating coal in a coke oven in the absence of oxygen. Both the quality and quantity of coke, as well as the lifespan of the oven, depend upon uniform temperature levels, so these require close monitoring.

Application Note - TEMPERATURE MEASUREMENTS IN CEMENT MANUFACTURETEMPERATURE MEASUREMENTS IN CEMENT MANUFACTURE

Temperature monitoring in and around the kiln is essential to an efficient process, and to produce cement of consistent quality. It also enables early detection of kiln refractory issues or insufficiently quenched clinker, which could lead to production stoppages if left unchecked.

Application Note - GLASS TEMPERINGGLASS TEMPERING

Tempered glass – sometimes called toughened or safety glass – is glass which has been heat-treated and then rapidly cooled, in a controlled manner, in an air quench section. This process makes the glass much more resilient than plain flat glass.

Application Note - Blast FurnaceBLAST FURNACE, STOVE DOME AND HOT BLAST MAIN

The quality and composition of iron produced in the blast furnace is directly related to the hearth temperature. This, in turn, is dependent on the temperature of the hot blast delivered from the blast furnace stoves. To maximise the efficiency of the stoves, they are operated at high temperatures, close to the safe working limit of the refractories. This makes it critical to carefully monitor the stove temperature.
