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.”

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
