Product Spotlight: Flame Ionization Detector (FID)

The Model 650 FID is used for emissions monitoring for total VOC’s or carbon bed breakthrough in pollution equipment, the following features help it to withstand the rigors of industrial applications: 

Did You Know? 3 Reasons to use the PrevEx on oxidizers

Check out our infographic explaining the top 3 reasons to use the PrevEx, our flammability analyzer for lower flammable limit monitoring (LFL/LEL), on oxidizers.

Thermal oxidizers are used to destroy the VOC's present in many industrial ventilation, process exhaust and waste air streams. As their use increases, so does a unique opportunity.

Using a FID in Wastewater Collection Pits

A specialty chemical manufacturer of pure resins collects & sends the discharge from the manufacturing process to a wastewater collection pit.

They continuously monitored the atmosphere of the collection pit with LFL infrared sensors for parts per million levels, confirming safe release of the wastewater. However, they found the IR sensor's scale was too high to detect the low ppm levels they needed.

Using the PrevEx for Pharmaceutical Batch Ovens

A developer and producer of generic drugs uses a pharmaceutical process that involves coating products with a mixture of solvents and then heating them in batch ovens. The solvents evaporate off, are collected and fed into a main duct, that feeds into the thermal oxidizer for destruction.

A Happy & Healthy Holiday

THIS YEAR WE GIVE THANKS FOR COLLEAGUES, CUSTOMERS, FAMILIES & FRIENDS AND WISH YOU GOOD HEALTH AND PROSPERITY IN 2021.

Gratefully Thankful

“What if today, we were just grateful for everything?” - Charlie Brown

In a year where the holidays will look very different than in years past, it's important to focus on what we have to be grateful for..and at Control Instruments we are grateful for your patronage, loyalty, & support. 

Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving.

Stay Safe & Be Well.

Safety E-Book: Application Concerns - Choosing the Right Analyzer

Summing up our Safety E-Book: Choosing the Right Analyzer

When looking for a gas monitoring system you must address some key concerns:

Safety E-Book: Sampling Methods - Process Monitoring

This month's Safety E-Book topic highlight is: Process Monitoring. 

Enclosed spaces require an active sample drawing system. Active sampling systems are superior to diffusion-sampling systems because they confirm that a sample is flowing across the sensing element, but since a sample is being transported, they are also more complicated.

Safety E-Book: Sampling Methods - Area Monitoring

This month's Safety E-Book topic highlight is: Area Monitoring. 

Indoor and outdoor gas hazards that exist in open areas are usually monitored using diffusion-type sensors.

Safety E-Book: Gas Vapor in Air Mixtures - LFL Monitoring Range

This month's Safety E-Book topic highlight is: LFL Monitoring Range. 

For each flammable substance there is a level of concentration in air, usually expressed as a percent by volume, known as its Lower Flammable Limit (LFL) or Lower Explosive Limit (LEL).
