New Literature Announcement: Flammability Analyzers Versus Flame Ionization Detectors for Process Applications

NEW LITERATURE ANNOUNCEMENT

Title: Flammability Analyzers Versus Flame Ionization Detectors for Process Applications

Summary: Why have so many fires and explosions occurred in industrial processes that were believed to have adequate protection against such hazards? In many cases, the wrong analyzer was used, or the sampling method was incorrect. Selecting the correct analyzer - and obtaining an accurate sample - is essential to maintaining a safe process. 

FTA vs FID: Questions to Consider

For the past few weeks we've been comparing the use of Flammability (FTA) Analyzers and Flame Ionization (FID) Detectors in process applications.

FTA vs FID: Fail-safe

We've talked about reading error and sample accuracy when comparing the use of Flammability (FTA) Analyzers and Flame Ionization (FID) Detectors in process applications. Today let's talk about a great feature: fail-safe.

FTA vs FID: Sample Accuracy

Last week we talked about reading error, this week let's continue our discussion comparing the use of Flammability (FTA) Analyzers and Flame Ionization (FID) Detectors in process applications, with sample accuracy.

Process atmospheres are typically heated to high temperatures. If any portion of the sample is lost in the sample delivery system, the analyzer will read lower than actual – an unsafe condition.

FTA vs FID: 7 reasons a FID can have a large reading error

Our next topic in the comparison of the Flammability (FTA) Analyzer and Flame Ionization (FID) Detector for use in process applications, is reading error.
