ABB to highlight emissions technology and know-how at AQE 2013

January 31, 2013

We are excited to announce that we’ll be exhibiting our latest range of air and gas analysers at the much anticipated Air Quality and Emissions (AQE) Show at the Telford International Centre (13-14th March 2013).

On stands 47 and 48, we will be showcasing a comprehensive selection of our equipment utilising a variety of measurement techniques, including laser, zirconia and FT-IR spectrometry.

Products on the stands will include the LS25 laser gas analyser. Enabling in-situ monitoring in stacks, pipes, process chambers and other similar applications, the LS25 uses tuneable diode laser absorption spectroscopy (TDLAS) to measure concentrations of various gases including oxygen and ammonia in gas streams. Offering a very fast response time, the LS25 is especially suited to applications with fast changing conditions such as municipal waste incineration where the composition of gases may be subject to rapid changes.

Other equipment on display will be our new Endura AZ10 zirconia oxygen and StackFlowMaster instruments. The AZ10 is a compact combustion gas analyser, coupling ABB’s proven zirconia oxygen sensing and transmitter technology. Aimed at safe area combustion processes, the AZ10 uses ABB’s common AZ transmitter platform, making it a low cost solution ideal for OEMs.

The StackFlowMaster is an in-situ device for measuring flows in stacks up to eight metres in diameter. The StackFlowMaster Manual version is for use in applications with relatively clean gases such as gas fired combustion processes. The StackFlowMaster Automatic features a purging and auto/span zero capability, making it suitable for applications with dust-laden gas streams.
Both versions of the StackFlowMaster work with continuous emissions monitoring analysers to calculate the emissions flow in mass or corrected volume units of measurement.

As well as being MCERTified and fully compliant with EN 15267-3, the StackFlowMaster is also fully QAL3 compliant, making it ideal for use by plants operating under an Environment Agency permit.
Using the StackFlowMaster’s zero and span functions, operators and test laboratories can perform regular tests to ascertain the performance of the analyser during normal operation.

As well as showcasing its products at the exhibition, we will also be hosting two workshops which will cover the key issues affecting the deployment of gas analysers in industrial applications.

The first workshop, hosted by ABB’s UK Analytical Sales Specialist, Steve Donnelly, is entitled ‘Improve your OMA score, and save money’ (Wednesday 13th March, Room 4, 11.00-11.30). The workshop will explain how using our next generation FTIR CEMS can help operators to maximise their OMA score and reduce capital and lifetime costs by having the best available technology and service and support in place.

The second workshop, also hosted by Steve, will be titled ‘ABB StackFlowMaster: integrating flow measurement into ABB CEMS”. Taking place on Thursday 14th March, the workshop will explain how flow data from our StackFlowMaster can be integrated into Continuous Emissions Monitoring systems to provide a comprehensive picture of both the quantity and quality of gas streams.
