Lancom 200 (Sulphuric Acid Dewpoint)

AMETEK Land Combustion Efficiency Monitors - Lancom 200 Sulphuric Acid Dewpoint Temperature Monitor
A portable monitoring device using conductive cell technology for accurate, periodic measurements of the Acid Dewpoint Temperature (ADT) in combustion processes. 
  • Overview +

    Designed specifically to provide the unique but vital measurement of sulphuric acid dewpoint temperature, the portable Lancom 200 supports boiler efficiency checks, corrosion protection and the management of high-cost fuel additives.

    Easy-to-use ADT monitoring lets boiler operators balance acid emissions with efficiency, reducing the risk of corrosion in the boiler and wasted heat/fuel. This lowers operational costs and reduces harmful sulphate aerosol emissions.

    Incorporating 40 years of AMETEK Land’s application expertise, Lancom 200 obtains an accurate reading in minutes. By generating a measurable current when sulphuric acid forms on the conductive cell, it makes a direct measurement for ADT. 

    Specially developed for plants requiring only periodic monitoring of sulphuric acid dewpoint temperature for boiler efficiency, the Lancom 200 is suitable for applications in the hydrocarbon processing and power generation industries.

    Using a conductive cell technique to measure the sulphuric acid dewpoint temperature, the Lancom 200 is accurate to within ±0.5°C, allowing a precise calculation of both sulphuric acid and sulphur trioxide concentrations, vital for optimum combustion efficiency and emissions compliance.

    Weighing just 10kg (22lb), the device is easily carried around the plant. It operates from mains supplies or for up to eight hours using internal battery power. All that’s needed is a local compressed air supply and a suitable sampling point for probe access. 

    Just one person is required to set up and operate the Lancom 200, obtaining complete measurement data in just a few minutes. The built-in screen makes it easy for operators to maintain the required steady current flow.

    The portable Lancom 200 is AMETEK Land’s dedicated solution for sulphuric acid dewpoint monitoring.

    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. Read More > Watch the Video >
