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: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

Im Focus: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.

The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
