Household waste, industrial emissions, and automobile exhaust are some of the pollutants that can contribute to climate change. They can also make you feel under the weather. In addition, these emissions contribute to the depletion of the Earth’s ozone layer.
Due to the threat of these environmental issues, countries around the world have enacted strict legislation aimed at reducing emissions. In the U.S., the EPA has proposed regulations that would establish the country’s first ultra-low emission standards for various industries. These standards would require companies to either comply with or face costly shutdowns.
Companies must have the necessary equipment to measure and analyze their emissions to comply with the regulations. One of the most important factors that a company should consider when implementing emission monitoring is the ability to perform multiple gas analyses simultaneously.
The increasing number of monitoring equipment and the technological advancements that are expected to drive the market for gas analyzers are some of the factors that are expected to drive the growth of the market in the next few years.
In order to meet the various industry standards, such as energy efficiency and performance, you need to make sure that you have a reliable product that meets the durability and reliability requirements of these applications.
In this article, Gas Analyzer Designers Face New Growth, New Challenges by Silvia Shen, tackles the things to consider in order to meet the quality standards for your gas analyzers equipment.
She started off with the definition of gas analyzers as…
“usually modular in configuration and expandable to accommodate multicomponent gas measurement. These compact machines can be portable or designed for fixed tabletop use. Portable analyzers are most often used in to detect gas components in a particular environment over at a specific time. Continuous analyzers, as their name implies, are used at a site, such as a steam or electricity generation facility, to constantly monitor compliance with environmental regulations and/or to fine-tune processes for greater efficiency and increased profitability”
When it comes to analyzers design, she quoted:
Designers should look for compact, lightweight architecture and low power consumption. Other features that make valves appropriate for applications in industrial gas analyzers include:
- Larger orifice sizes and vacuum capability enhanced versatility across multiple applications
- Inert material constructions for corrosion protection
- Availability in different porting configurations for manifold and in-line mounting
- Compliance with relevant CE directives and RoHS compliance for lead-free environments
Having a reliable partner to help you choose the right design and equipment is also important to meet the desired needs in manufacturing these devices. She said:
Launching new designs ahead of the competition is essential to successfully capitalizing on the growing gas-analyzer market. However, due to the critical nature of fluid control in these systems, a lack of in-house fluid-control-design knowledge can make it hard to understand what is possible. This, in turn, can lead to delays that make it difficult to meet aggressive time-to-market goals.
