Servomex gas analysers to benefit UK power station


Servomex’s expertise in monitoring combustion gases has been recognised by Drax Power Limited, which has ordered the installation of gas analysers for the UK’s cleanest and most coal-efficient power station.

Eight SERVOTOUGH Fluegas (2700) units, optimised to measure both 02 and CO2, have been installed to monitor the oxygen burn mix for the combustion boilers at Drax Power Station in Selby, Yorkshire.

Through closer monitoring of combustion processes, Drax engineers will be able to control the optimum burn mix more accurately, therefore saving fuel and enabling considerable cost savings, while also further improving emissions quality.

Already replacing a range of competitor analysers at other coal-fired power stations, the SERVOTOUGH Fluegas combustion gas analyser is ideal for monitoring combustion processes by using a combination of a zirconium oxide cell for measuring oxygen and a patented ‘thick film’ catalytic sensor for combustibles such as CO equivalents and CO2.
