It is important when selecting an analyzer to find the right fit for your application. In some cases that might mean finding one that can withstand the vigors of a tough, industrial environment. In this case you would want it to:
- Give consistent and reliable readings with multiple solvents
- Run at a temperature high enough to keep all the dryer atmosphere elements in the vapor state, eliminating clogging & sample condensation
- NOT be susceptible to coating or poisoning by resins or any other plasticizers or silicones
A manufacturer of advanced specialty materials for filtration, battery & industrial applications, we recently worked with had this type of environment. However, they were using Infrared Analyzers to monitor the %LFL and found the constituents of the process fouled the IR lens causing inaccurate readings and they had an explosion.
They made the decision to look for a different technology to monitor their process. Read the case history to find out more about the analyzer they chose; it has a fast response, is failsafe, with low maintenance and easy servicing.
