The number of applications for painted steel is growing and while using analyzers to stay safe is the primary concern, you might find that in doing so you can also optimize your process.
Safety and fire codes outline the design specification for the safe operation of solvent ovens. The codes limit the maximum solvent concentration allowable to 25% LFL under worst case conditions. If the LFL exceeds 25% continuous monitors must be used. The challenge with this particular application is that can be that there is a possibility of sudden increase in %LFL.
Finding an analyzer that can handle this challenging environment is crucial. It should have the ability to accurately measure the total flammability of all the constituents in the process and is not susceptible to coating or poisoning by resins or any other plasticizers or silicones. Fast response and failsafe operation are also a must.
