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.”

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.
Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.
"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
