The new SERVOTOUGH LaserCompact 2900 from Servomex brings the ‘outstanding’ measurement accuracy of advanced Tuneable Diode Laser (TDL) technology to a whole new range of industries and applications.
Designed to deliver true continuous in-situ monitoring across short distances, the LaserCompact is optimised for measurement across pipes and along short cells.
Able to detect a wide range of gases including O2, HCl, HF, NH3, CO, CO2, H2O, H2S, HCN, NO, N2O, CH4 and other hydrocarbons, the LaserCompact utilises the latest TDL Spectroscopy technology to deliver a response time of less than two seconds, highly stable performance, and minimal interference from background gases.
With minimum sample conditioning requirements, zero drift and no moving parts and consumables, the LaserCompact delivers a low cost-of-ownership through minimal maintenance or downtime.
As Servomex’s advanced TDL technology delivers measurement through a highly focused laser beam, the LaserCompact is able to measure through very thin nozzles, reducing or even eliminating consumption of purge gas.
With this launch, the remit or deployment of TDL technology is expanded across even more applications.
Key applications for the LaserCompact include a range of chemical industry applications, monitoring for contaminants and moisture in petrochemical processing, non-contact analysis of corrosive, dusty, tarry or sooty gases across pipes, and use in automobile manufacture on engine test stands.
“Following the great success of the SERVOTOUGH LaserSP, we have launched the LaserCompact to meet the needs of customers requiring a shorter path measurement,” said Chris Cottrell, Managing Director, Servomex.
“By offering the same exceptional reliability, stability and accuracy of measurement, the LaserCompact will bring TDL’s outstanding benefits to even more applications.”
Meeting the requirements
Certified to ATEX and IECEx standards, the LaserCompact meets the requirements of new flammable sample regulations in full, allowing safe operation in situations where the process stream itself is flammable and has been classified as a Hazardous Area.
Optimised for easy installation on measurement cells or DN50/ANSI flanges, the robust design of the LaserCompact makes it ideal for gas measurements in hot, dirty or dangerous environments that can pose problems for some extractive analyser systems.
