The direct mounting of the analyzer to a process duct has two main benefits:
- eliminates the time delay associated with a long sample line
- makes it easier to keep the sample heated sufficiently to prevent condensation
Even a very short section of relatively cold sample line can have a very serious effect on the analyzer accuracy and reliability.
By mounting the sensor directly on the process duct without heat trace sample lines, pumps, or blowers, you eliminate the unpredictability of moving parts and shorten the sample path significantly. This radically reduces sample delivery time, while ultimately accelerating response time.
