To establish purity and optimize process control in industrial processing applications such as ethylene, natural gas, and hydrogen manufacturing, Emerson Automation Solutions has introduced the Rosemount CT5800 continuous gas analyzer. According to Emerson, the CT5800 is the first Quantum Cascade Laser (QCL) analyzer designed for industrial process applications requiring Class I, Division 2 hazardous area certification built within a flameproof enclosure.
“Traditional process gas analysis technology has seen only small incremental changes over the last few decades, and therefore, are often not equipped with the speed and sensitivity to comply with regulations and support better process control and monitoring. Laser technology is a quantum leap over this traditional technology, offering the industry fast and sensitive measurements, which ultimately means improved process yield and health and safety compliance,” said Amanda Gogates, Global Product Manager for Rosemount Quantum Cascade Laser Analyzers, Emerson Automation Solutions. “The CT5000 Series is Emerson’s first laser platform in the marketplace. The CT5800 is an explosion proof housing option for customers targeting gas purity, as its unique cell design practically eliminates the possibility of ambient air impacting the gas measurement.”
According to Gogates, the CT5800 analyzer’s cell design enables high-accuracy measurement of concentrations of impurities down to low ppm levels in the gas streams with exceptional linearity of response and repeatability, and incorporates up to six laser modules housed inside the same enclosure. The CT5800 analyzer can measure up to twelve components simultaneously.
