Advanced combustion equipment such as flare stacks, boilers, oxidizers or turbine engines may need to optimize their burner efficiency for reduced fuel costs. A waste gas stream can supplement the fuel supply to achieve proper combustion while saving costs. The waste stream can consist of many renewable energy sources such as landfill gas, sludge, alcohol fuels or other biomass compounds that may be able to self-sustain the equipment without added fuel.

Continuous monitoring of the waste stream is necessary to identify the energy content or calorific value, to determine whether it can be used as a standalone fuel supply or whether it needs to be blended with the constant fuel source such as natural gas.

The CalorVal BTU Analyzer will accurately measure the direct BTU concentration of waste streams and provide the alarm set point to alternate between the waste stream and the constant fuel source quickly for uniterrupted fuel.
