Back to the Basics: The Role of the Analyzer

Featured Product from Control Instruments Corp.


Go back to the basics of gas detection & solvent vapor monitoring.

First and foremost - Analyzers improve safety, economy and performance.

The purpose of a combustible gas analyzer is to provide early warning of an increasing concentration of combustible gas, before it can burn or explode. When monitoring industrial processes where combustible gases and vapors are normally present in significant concentrations, a fast and accurate measurement is essential.

An accurate analyzer does not reduce the margin of safety by giving false low readings, nor does it interfere with the process by giving falsely exaggerated readings. Because many processes can possibly lose control quickly, the analyzer must give an immediate alarm to allow time for effective corrective action. Industrial and legal guidelines have been developed which, when properly observed, greatly improve the safety of these processes.

Many practical issues arise in the process design and operation, which should be understood in order to obtain maximum safety, economy and performance.
