Many applications including emissions monitoring, ethylene purity, ammonia slip, hydrocarbon gas composition, and more require the measurement of the concentration of various components in a gas mixture. One technology used to perform this measurement is tunable diode lasers and laser absorption spectrometry (TDLAS). This fast, high resolution detects and identifies a range of molecules in […]

Process manufacturers with hazardous areas in their process are responsible for the safety of the process through the IEC 61511 safety lifecycle—from initial design through decommissioning. Flame monitoring is often an important component in risk mitigation. Emerson’s Jonathan Saint wrote a Petroleum Review article, Minimising false alarms, to address this major challenge with flame detection […]

Back in January, I shared some thoughts from Emerson’s Doug Simmers on improving combustion in a post, Optimum Combustion for Reduced Greenhouse Emissions. He’ll be presenting later this year on flue gas analysis and I was able to get my hands on a rough draft. I’ll highlight a few of his early ideas and hope […]
