New interfaces enable easy connection to PC and remote control gas monitoring system via standard Ethernet interface.

LumaSense Technologies, Inc. has released the INNOVA 1412i Series with two new features that allow industrial manufacturers to more easily connect their gas monitoring system either via the USB interface (to connect the monitor directly to a PC) or via Ethernet to connect the monitor to the Local Area Network.

Multi-point monitoring is easily realizable, using the 7860 LumaSoft™ Gas software with one or two INNOVA 1309 Multipoint Sampler for sequentially monitoring air samples from up to 24 different locations. In addition to the new interfaces, an OPC server (included within the 7860 LumaSoft™) offers easy access to the latest gas measurement on any PC connected via the local area network

The Photoacoustic Gas-Monitor Innova 1412i can be used in a wide range of applications like:

Precise Measurements of Green House Gas Emissions

Process automation and optimization in chemical and industrial manufacturing

Indoor Air-quality (IAQ) and ventilation measurements

SF6 monitoring in utilities and industrial sites

Laboratory, analytical, industrial, environmental research

Photoacoustic Gas-Monitor 1412i – Industry Gold Standard for High Precision Measurement

Over the past 25 years, Photoacoustic gas measurement technology has been widely used by industrial and chemical manufacturers, environmental regulators, and researchers to optimize efficiency by high precision measurements. The instrument requires no consumables maintenance and minimum calibration.

Excellent Gas selectivity without interference from water vapor and other gases is achieved through the use of optical filters. The 1412i provides detections limits typically in the ppb range without any interference from temperature and pressure fluctuations.

SmartDGA Online-Monitors for Transformers

LumaSense Reshapes the Dissolved Gas Analysis (DGA) Market with a Range of Monitors that Reduce Transformer Outages

Energy-intensive companies require safe supply of power by using own transformer-networks

SmartDGA® platform employs infrared gas-sensing technology, features unique hardware design that dramatically reduces installation time, costs are significantly less than traditional DGA systems

LumaSense Technologies provide a new category of dissolved-gas analysis (DGA) monitors that allow electric utilities as well as energy–intensive companies to more effectively reduce outages caused by faulty load tap changers (LTC’s) and transformers. At a cost significantly less expensive than comparable DGA monitors and a unique hardware design that drastically cuts down installation time, the LumaSense SmartDGA® platform can help utilities achieve widespread condition monitoring across generation, transmission and distribution assets.

Currently, less than 5 percent of transformers have condition-based online DGA monitoring systems, according to industry sources, and approximately 30 percent of all transformer failures in the United States are related to faulty LTCs.

Widespread condition monitoring was unattainable using traditional technologies, largely due to high costs and excessive installation time. Whereas other systems take days to install, a SmartDGA monitor can be installed in a matter of hours. Additionally, SmartDGA monitors will cost up to 50-percent less than other monitors. The first monitor in the line, the SmartDGA® Gauge, was be the industry’s first dedicated online gas monitor for LTCs.

The SmartDG®A platform uses non-dispersive infrared (NDIR) sensing technology. LumaSense has used NDIR technology in more than 400,000 instruments over the past 40 years. This extensive experience is coupled with a proprietary algorithm developed in accordance with recent utility standards to analyze and report LTC conditions. The SmartDGA® monitors require no carrier gas, no frequent calibrations and can be easily retrofitted to LTC’s to provide asset condition status.

IMPAC IGA 315-K for Coke Oven Measurements

TEMPERATURE MEASUREMENT IN A COKE OVEN

Accurate monitoring and recording of coke oven temperatures is necessary to maintain efficient coke production.

Metallurgical coal – or coking coal – are vital ingredients in the iron and steel making process. For the production of this material, the coke oven is filled with coal through the filler holes in the oven roof. The processing of the coal is then carried out in the absence of air at temperatures of up to 1300 °C.

The coking oven battery is heated by vertical heating walls which can consist of up to 40 heating flues, located between each oven chamber. Heat is transferred from the walls to the center of the oven, where the coal is converted into coke and solidifies away from the oven walls. In order to achieve efficient coking of the coal, an optimal heat distribution must be ensured over the entire heating wall. Any residue and deposits on the heating walls can not only have a negative effect on the quality of the coking process, but can also result in production losses and high costs on a restart. Accurate control of the supply of heat and monitoring of the temperature distribution in the heating walls throughout the whole production process is essential. The relevant temperature measurements are made of the heating walls of the adjacent coke ovens from directly above the furnace cover after opening the heating flue ports.

Most coking oven batteries are constructed with 70 ovens and up to 40 heating flues. The temperature recording is carried out alternately as a longitudinal or transverse measure­ment. During a transverse measure­ment, several heating walls are usually measured and recorded as a series of measurements. During a measurement sequence, several heating walls are recorded in a series that may reach up to approximately 2000 values.

For such measurements, LumaSense Technologies provides two dedicated solutions: the specially designed IMPAC IGA 315-K and IS 8 Pro portable pyrometers with integrated data storage for non-contact temperature measurement in coking oven batteries. These instruments provide:

• Simple operation by parameter setting on the rear of the measurement instru­ment and display of the measurement values in the view finder and on the rear.

• High quality variable focus optics combined with a large view finder enabling simple aiming and measurement even with large measurement distances (up to 12 m). Precision optics for measuring the smallest areas within the coke oven through the inspection ports.

• Integrated data memory for up to 2,000 temperature measurements and an interface for transferring the data to a PC in Excel format.

• Housing specifically developed for coking plants, with a robust design including thermal protection sheath for daily use with high ambient temperatures and very dusty atmospheres.

Just to mention the most important user benefits:

Fast, time-saving and accurate temperature measurement of the air stages and nozzle bricks in coking oven batteries from the oven roof, without endangering the operational reliability or interrupting operation­Automatic recording of the pouring temperatures

Quality assurance and cost savings through the optimum use of energy and raw materials

Convenient process monitoring and dedicated control of the heat supply throughout the entire oven battery via accurate non-contact temperature measurement

Complete monitoring documentation of the coking oven by means of data storage and subsequent evaluation facilities
