Servomex has announced the launch of the SERVOTOUGH Laser gas range, a series of high performance gas analysers that use the latest extractive and cross-stack technologies for continuous in-situ monitoring.

The news comes at a time when in-situ equipment demand is in high demand thanks to recession-driven cost cutting and a desire for efficiencies, as gasworld recently highlighted.

The SERVOTOUGH Laser analysers are the first Servomex products to benefit from a recently signed strategic partnership with Norsk Elektro Optikk (NEO).

It’s a partnership that sees the incorporation of NEO’s Tuneable Diode Laser Absorption Spectroscopy (TDLAS) technology as a complementary technique to Servomex’s paramagnetic, zirconium oxide and infrared technologies.

As a result, the high performance analyser is introduced - an analyser that combines NEO’s precision technologies within a rugged and resistant Servomex design, resulting in the best solution for in-situ cross stack measurements in extreme or harsh environments.

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 Laser range offers a fast response time, highly stable performance and minimum sample conditioning requirements with no moving parts and consumables, making it suitable for a wide range of emissions control and process and combustion control applications.

SERVOTOUGH Laser analysers are therefore ideal for use in a wide range of industries, including chemical and petroleum processing, steel, aluminium and other non-ferrous metal producers, power generation and waste incineration.

Typical applications includes usage in emission control systems for scrubber and abatement plants, combustion control systems for boilers or waste incinerators and slippage control in deNOx plants.

Chris Cottrell, Servomex Managing Director, explained, “The SERVOTOUGH Laser range is the first step forward in our partnership with NEO and a crucial product that ensures Servomex delivers the complete range of gas analysis solutions to the global market.”
