Solvent Vapor Monitoring in Coil Coating Oven Atmospheres

Coil coating line managers report that they experience three basic problems in solvent vapor monitoring of their ovens: 1. Maintenance is burdensome. Sample lines clog, pumps break down, and analyzer elements become fouled - all resulting in excessive labor and costly downtime. 2. Sensor accuracy is a problem. Because most analyzers have a wide solvent response factor, they must be checked and...

New Technical Note: Flammability Analyzers versus Flame Ionization Detectors for Process Applications

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...
