In many industries, challenging ambient conditions of all kinds are part of everyday production. The systems and sensors that are responsible for keeping the production process safe have to be specially protected against severe contamination or aggressive chemicals. For instance, chemicals are an unavoidable part of solar cell production, where they are central to core processes such as solar wafer surface finishing and cleaning. The levels in the chemical tanks have to be constantly monitored by sensors. The Teflon®-coated UP56 Pure ultrasonic level sensors deliver precise results on a non-stop basis.
The impending updates to the BREF documents have indicated that mercury emissions from large combustion plants will soon have to be reduced dramatically. However, a reliable measurement solution is already ready and waiting with a certified measuring range from 0 to 10 μg/m³ of mercury. The MERCEM300Z by SICK.
A consistently high level of quality among parts and components can only be guaranteed if you regularly check results with measurements. These thorough checks are carried out using a wide array of methods, for example outside of the process by removing sample parts and conducting a mechanical check or by using measurement tools that are integrated directly into the production process. This is precisely the area where optical measuring sensors can show off their strengths.
Regenerative Thermal Oxidation (RTO) systems use combustion to remove harmful gas components from exhaust air, the majority of these being pollutants resulting from corrosive components in chemical processes. It is also particularly important that hazardous air in landfill sites and solvent-containing emissions in paint shops are treated. Regardless of the location or the substance being treated, environmental regulations are one of many challenges to be faced. SICK’s oxygen transmitter triumphs over paramagnetic measuring in airprotech’s RTO systems, with the arguments in favor of the TRANSIC151LP speaking for themselves.
