FTA vs FID: 7 reasons a FID can have a large reading error

Our next topic in the comparison of the Flammability (FTA) Analyzer and Flame Ionization (FID) Detector for use in process applications, is reading error.

FTA vs FID: The Basics

Why have so many fires and explosions occurred in industrial processes that were believed to have adequate protection against such hazards? In many cases, the wrong analyzer was used, or the sampling method was incorrect. Selecting the correct analyzer - and obtaining an accurate sample - is essential to maintaining a safe process. 

Ideally, the analyzer will have an accurate response to a broad range of flammables, will be able to operate in high temperature process environments, and will have a fail-safe design:

Combatting the Hazards in Solvent Based Printing

Solvent based inks in different colors and patterns are applied to paper, plastic, film and foil substrates. Finished products include all sorts of wrapping paper, wall covering, candy wrappers, flexible food packages, shrink labels, high quality magazines and many, many more. These industries employ ovens or dryers to remove the solvents from the finished product.

How to Safely Expand in Rotogravure Printing

Rotogravure printing is a competitive marketplace. According to the GAA, “gravure has strengthened its position of dominance in both the publishing & packaging segments”. They are a part of an evolving industry, trying to keep up with consumer, geographical & environmental trends, which often comes down to whoever can print the fastest, at the lowest cost, wins. But how can you safely expand your plant to keep up with these demands? Automating Damper Control.

Lowering Fuel Costs in your Oxidizer

Being safe. Check. Saving Energy. Check. Lowering Fuels Costs? Let's discuss how this too can be checked off our list of achievements that come from adding an LFL Analyzer to your oxidizer.

Save Energy, Reduce Emissions and Maximize your Oxidizer’s Efficiency

Increase energy efficiencies and optimize productivity, ALL while reducing emissions? Sounds like some lofty goals. They can however be realized when the appropriate analyzer is installed on your oxidizer. 

The EPA Pollution Prevention (P2) Program wants you to “reduce or eliminate waste at the source by modifying production processes”, this can be achieved when you install a continuous Total Hydrocarbon (THC) monitor on your catalytic oxidizer.
