|On Demand Webinar|| Oxygen Gas-phase measurement – without a sampling system! |
Measuring systems based on amperometric technology particularly well suited for the measurement of gaseous oxygen in blanketing, inertization and off-gas monitoring applications. Because they are insensitive to moisture and dust, they do not require any gas sampling system and can be installed directly into the process gas stream, increasing the safety of the installation by measuring there, where it matters most. Not only are amperometric systems able to accurately track the oxygen level in the process, but they are also more convenient to maintain than other current measurement systems such as paramagnetic and Zirconium Dioxide ZrO2) systems. Instead of mandatory maintenance breaks of at least one day, amperometric systems can be safely extracted from a continuous process and maintenance can be performed in two minutes.
