Using an analyzer with high sampling speed dramatically improves response time - an important factor in pulp mill applications.
The environment of the vent pipe that carries the Total Reduced Sulfur compounds (TRS) is dirty and humid. Most gas sensors are quickly impaired by these conditions, leading to unreliable readings.
Because most sensors can only operate at ambient, as opposed to process temperatures, they are positioned far away from incinerators, using a snaking pipe arrangement and pumps to cool samples.
This convoluted network can lead to many sample delivery problems, particularly when TRS is in a mist state, lengthening the repsonse time.
An ultra-fast response, like the PrevEx Flammability Analyzer's as low as 1-second, allows valuable time for operator intervention before the (TRS) are diverted from the incinerator and vented into the atmosphere, clearly a “last resort” safeguard.
