The basic design of the diode laser gas analyzer LDS 6 enables further opportunities in process gas analytics and continuous emission monitoring. The major part of the benefits the in-situ approach is introducing belongs to the simple fact that the measurement is performed non-intrusively and in real-time – without any disturbance or delay due to gas sampling or gas conditioning.
The total benefit depends on the individual process. In almost any case, the elegant method leads to a higher efficiency and less efforts for installation and maintenance. As a consequence of the fast in-situ measuring the profitability and the environmental compatibility of most processes can be increased.
Besides emission monitoring there is a set of industrial applications where diode laser is already established as a standard tool for process optimisation. Among the most important market segments in the process industries one will find, today:
