Siemens Boosts Safety through Gas Analyser Technology

17.03.2015
  • New product launch and industry certifications across existing analyser ranges optimises safety for end users
  • Operators equipped to meet stringent industry regulations through Siemens’ gas analyser technology

Siemens UK & Ireland has announced a series of product developments across its gas and oxygen analyser portfolio designed to optimise safety and efficiency, whilst enabling customers to meet stringent industry regulations.

First comes the launch of the Siprocess UV600, a gas analyser which uses ultraviolet technology for the measurement of low concentrations of notoriously difficult to measure components, such as NO, NO2, SO2 and H2S.

Suitable for a range of applications in chemical and industrial processes, the Siprocess UV600 is an ideal tool for monitoring gas turbine emissions and forms part of Siemens’ emissions monitoring package, which is designed to help end users meet strict regulations, such as Annex V of the Industrial Emissions Directive. The Siprocess UV600, which is MCERTS approved, uses ultraviolet absorption techniques to ensure high speciation of measured components free from cross interferences.

The compact solution occupies a 4U panel height enclosure, so plants can enhance efficiency by avoiding the use of maintenance-heavy catalytic converters or ozone generators for total NOx measurements.

Meanwhile, Siemens’ Ultramat 6 multi-gas analyser has gained German Lloyd certification, meeting the requirements of MPEC 184(59) and MARPOL Annex VI for the ship board emissions monitoring duty.

As a quality tested and approved solution for the continuous monitoring of SO2 and CO2 emissions, Ultramat 6 offers greater assurance to end users when it comes to meeting stringent requirements - such as the introduction of Emission Control Areas - to reduce emissions of sulphur dioxide from marine fuel combustion.

The Ultramat 6 can be supplied directly to end-users or made available to systems integrators for inclusion in complete gas cleaning, monitoring and reporting packages.

Finally, Siemens’ Oxymat 6/61 series has now been released with a Safety Integrity Level (SIL) 2 rating. The oxygen analyser solution for standard applications incorporates a paramagnetic alternating pressure method and microflow sensor technology to provide a high degree of reliability and accuracy when measuring oxygen in gases.

The Oxymat series can be used in applications with up to 100% oxygen with a suppressed zero and Siemens is able to offer customers an additional ‘cleaned for oxygen service’, ensuring total process safety.

The solution’s SIL 2 classification makes it easier for plant operators to comply with statutory requirements regarding the verification of risk reduction.

Shawn Pullman, Product Manager – CGA & Laser, at Siemens UK & Ireland comments: “The developments and new certifications across our key gas and oxygen analyser ranges means we’re able to offer customers greater assurance that by using our products and services, they are equipped to meet industry regulations and challenges now, and in the future. We’re committed to building on our solutions and product certifications to continue to deliver the very best in process safety and efficiency for customers.”

Im Focus: LZH showcases laser material processing of tomorrow at the LASYS 2018

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.

At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...

Im Focus: Self-illuminating pixels for a new display generation

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?

At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
